Elliot Stabler: [reading a gay victim's hate mail] " 'All queers will burn in the flames of hell,' so sayeth the Lord." Somehow I don't think that's a direct quote.
[the detectives are investigating the murder of a gay man - they have in custody a reverend who was protesting at his funeral]
Det. Elliot Stabler: [reading his file] Reverend Mitchell Shaw... you really get around. Protesting in Vermont, at the Supreme Court... cheering at the funeral of a six-year-old who died of AIDS.
Det. Olivia Benson: Maybe you should switch to a career in publicity.
Rev. Mitchell Shaw: The Lord asked me to do his work.
Det. Elliot Stabler: Did he ask you to ignore all that, uh, "love thy neighbor" stuff?
Rev. Mitchell Shaw: "If a man lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death, their blood is upon them." Leviticus.
Det. Elliot Stabler: The Bible also says I can sell my daughters into slavery and be put to death if I work on a Sunday. 12 years of Catholic school. Anyone can memorize words, Reverend. Doesn't make 'em righteous.
Rev. Mitchell Shaw: The city is filled with sodomites and you waste your time protecting them, and yet you wonder why so many of your NYPD brothers were struck down on September 11th. Do you not see the Lord's judgment upon you?
[Elliot shoves away the table and gets right in Shaw's face]
Det. Elliot Stabler: I see a scared, shriveled-up piece of trash who uses God to justify his bigotry.
Det. Elliot Stabler: Go back in there and strangle the son of a bitch.
Detective John Munch: I love the guy. I want to invite him to the Christmas party.
Crossing Guard: I hope a cab doesn't splatter you all over mid-town, you little brats.
Det. Elliot Stabler: I don't know, I guess some people just choose to be gay and others choose to be straight.
Det. Olivia Benson: So you chose to be heterosexual?
Det. Elliot Stabler: Me? No.
Captain Donald Cragen: What did you get from the people at Reed's funeral?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Not much - after the fight broke out, a bunch of people left before we got their names.
Detective John Munch: [brandishing a camera] Yeah, but... we got their pictures.
Captain Donald Cragen: Where the hell is that from?
Detective John Munch: One of Reverend Shaw's church members, he must've left it behind.
A.D.A. Casey Novak: [smiling] I didn't hear that.
Captain Donald Cragen: Get it back to him, John.
Detective John Munch: I'll be happy to, I'll even develop his film for free.
