Forensic Anthropologist: [after the body of a deceased, unknown young girl is discovered] Meet Cherish Doe.
Elliot Stabler: What, Jane Doe's not good enough?
Forensic Anthropologist: It's too impersonal. A cute little girl with braids deserves something better, don't you think?
John Munch: Why do we always get the trash detail?
Odafin Tutuola: 'Cause we're the right men for the job.
[finds something in the trash]
Odafin Tutuola: Plus we've got the will and we got the skill.
Odafin Tutuola: Violet's telling the truth.
John Munch: Junkies lie all the time. Your words.
Odafin Tutuola: You didn't talk to her.
John Munch: Then let her see the body.
Odafin Tutuola: The child had no face. No mother can handle that.
John Munch: Sounds like you're lacking a little objectivity.
Odafin Tutuola: Why? 'Cause I'm not handling things your way?
John Munch: The department doesn't have a budget for Violet's hotel room. You're paying for it, aren't you?
Odafin Tutuola: So what?
John Munch: Well, I guess she is kind of cute.
Odafin Tutuola: Look, somebody knows who took Nina after Mrs. Hawkins died. We've gotta canvass her neighborhood. Let's go.
John Munch: I still think you ought to let her view the body.
Odafin Tutuola: Are you coming or what?
John Munch: How do you even know she has a kid? Maybe she's using Cherish Doe for a handout.
Odafin Tutuola: I pulled the birth certificate myself, so back off.
Elliot Stabler: [walks up to Fin and Munch] Lover's quarrel?
Odafin Tutuola: Gonna be a domestic dispute if Munch don't get out of my face.
Odafin Tutuola: [to Mrs. Preston] You see the resemblance to Nina Tremain? This little girl was raped, murdered and tossed in a dumpster. Don't get in my way, lady.
Olivia Benson: [to Mrs. Preston about Nina Tremain] Can you explain why your records say that you visited her last Tuesday and Thelma Price says you didn't?
Mrs. Preston: That woman's a liar.
Odafin Tutuola: You're the liar, lady!
Mrs. Preston: Hey, I want my union rep.
Olivia Benson: Yeah? Well, why don't you tell your union rep that Nina Tremain is missing and that you haven't seen her in six weeks. You were responsible for this child's safety and you didn't even bother to check on her.
Mrs. Preston: This is not my fault.
Odafin Tutuola: Whose fault is it?
Mrs. Preston: Do you know what my job is like? How big of a caseload I have? There's no way I can see every child.
Odafin Tutuola: If you're looking for sympathy, you're barking up the wrong tree.
Donald Cragen: A perfect stranger shows up at your door, says he's a social worker and you just turn over your kid without a second thought?
Alexandra Cabot: [to Fin about Violet going undercover in her AA meeting to find Ronnie Marshall] Whatever you're thinking, don't.
Odafin Tutuola: Violet's our only way in.
Alexandra Cabot: Violet would be acting as an agent of the police. Any evidence she obtains could be excluded in court.
Odafin Tutuola: We're not looking for evidence, Counselor. We're looking for a lead. Nina Tremain might still be alive.
Alexandra Cabot: We're talking about violating the confidentiality of a drug treatment program.
Donald Cragen: Alex, I tell people in A.A. things I wouldn't want my best friend to know. Now I'd be the first to agree with you, but I don't see how making an appeal could hurt.
Alexandra Cabot: I would prefer to get the information through legal channels. I'll get a subpoena.
Donald Cragen: For what? N.A. doesn't keep membership lists or records.
Odafin Tutuola: You want to tell that woman you care more about the law than the life of her child? She's living a parent's worst nightmare. You think I really had to run a number on her?
Alexandra Cabot: All right, but the only way we do this is the right way.
Ronnie Marshall: [to Fin] What is your problem?
Odafin Tutuola: Your daughter's dead and there's not one cell in your junkie body that gives a damn.
Ronnie Marshall: That man who took my daughter was right. I'm not fit to be a mom. Susie deserved more than me. Now she's gone and there's nothing that I can do that's gonna change that.
Odafin Tutuola: You could help us save this other little girl. Make it right for Susie.
Dr. George Huang: Dolls are idealized representations of men and women. They're pure, perfect and sexless. Terry Jessup is like a child who uses dolls to act out his fantasies.
Olivia Benson: [to Terry Jessup] Your dolls are beautiful. I had lots of dolls, but never ones as nice as yours.
Terry Jessup: Girls are lucky. They can play with dolls. Boys aren't supposed to.
Odafin Tutuola: I had dolls.
Terry Jessup: You did? What kind?
Odafin Tutuola: You know, GI Joe, Batman...
Terry Jessup: Those are action figures.
Terry Jessup: Little children deserve to be loved. Bad mothers shouldn't bring little children into this world.
Alexandra Cabot: Putting Violet and Jessup together is a bad idea.
Odafin Tutuola: She was strong enough to go to those NA meetings. We prep her correctly, I know she can handle it.
[to Dr. Huang]
Odafin Tutuola: Back me up, Doc.
Dr. George Huang: Jessup thinks he's saving Nina from an abusive parent. If you challenge his delusion, he might break.
Olivia Benson: And if this doesn't work, the guilt will destroy Violet's life.
Odafin Tutuola: A dead child's gonna destroy her even more. Nina's gonna die if we don't do something.
