D.A. Adam Schiff: Are you kidding? Shelly' Kates could convince a jury that Jeffrey Dahmer had an eating disorder.
Detective Lennie Briscoe: I read an article on the Internet. Did you know a hundred million words get added to that damn thing every day?
Lt. Anita Van Buren: [laughing] What?
Detective Lennie Briscoe: A hundred million.
Lt. Anita Van Buren: [reading] "The more I stab you the more I want you."
Detective Lennie Briscoe: Sounds like Gershwin.
Lt. Anita Van Buren: Damn. My college's idea of sex in literature was Jane Eyre.
Detective Rey Curtis: It's not just the colleges. It's everywhere. I won't let me kids near network television.
A.D.A. Claire Kincaid: Shelly didn't seem to be quite on her game today.
Jack McCoy: We won, Claire, don't you get paranoid on me now.
A.D.A. Claire Kincaid: Why not? It seems to be contagious. The dean told me half the campus requested single room dorms.
D.A. Adam Schiff: Why not? A little paranoia could be the key to a long life. Who ever really knows the person sharing their bedroom?
[Jack and Claire look at each other]
A.D.A. Claire Kincaid: [to Michelle Kates] I'll be assisting Jack McCoy.
Michelle 'Shelly' Kates: Jack. Oh, goody. Is he still bedding... what's-her-name, with the red hair?
A.D.A. Claire Kincaid: No. No.
Michelle 'Shelly' Kates: Oh, a serious one. Don't sweat it, sweetie. Ten more years in this business, even the tax code will break you up. What do you say, tomorrow, 11:00, Jack's office?
Jack McCoy: Shelly's representing the Maslin girl.
A.D.A. Claire Kincaid: She's a real piece of work.
Jack McCoy: Don't kid yourself. Shelly Kates can work 48 hours into a day. She's a hell of an attorney.
