Joe Blaine: [describing how he murdered two classmates] They're running... and I'm shooting. There's blood everywhere, but they just wont die! Not 'till I get close. Bang! Bang! They finally stop. I heard sirens. I ran to hide. I went to the boiler room but the window was too high. So I put the gun to my head...
[makes an imaginary gun with his hand and puts it to his head]
Joe Blaine: I don't remember any more.
Barry Moredock: It's a fact that Aptril causes anxiety and insomnia...
ADA Alexandra Cabot: I suffer from anxiety and insomnia. I don't go around shooting people.
Dean Reynolds: Stop it, you're hurting me!
Elliot Stabler: Take some Aptril. That'll make you feel better.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: I need your advice.
Dr. George Huang: ...Lie down on the couch.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: Not that sort of advice.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: What were you thinking, turning this case over to Barry Moredock?
Dr. George Huang: I'm concerned about Joe Blaine. I knew Moredock would share my concerns.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: So it wasn't enough you had to call him in, you also handed him his defense?
Dr. George Huang: I'm not against the use of psychiatric drugs to treat children, I just don't think they should be used as an instrument of school policy.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: Then publish an article. You had no business interfering in my case!
Dr. George Huang: Thousands of children are being forced to take powerful drugs without psychiatric supervision. Before you crucify Joe Blaine, maybe you should hear what your detectives found out.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: What, now you're working on Joe Blaine's defense too?
Detective Elliot Stabler: Alex... you weren't there, this kid is seriously troubled.
Detective Olivia Benson: We spoke to his school counselor. She said that Joe was exceptionally creative, yet extremely disruptive. They suggested: counseling, medication - but, Joe's mother always resisted.
Detective Elliot Stabler: She said he was special, needed special treatment - so in the end the school insisted that he go see their shrink.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: So that's who prescribed Joe the Aptril?
Detective Elliot Stabler: Apparently not. Mom wanted a second opinion, so they went to go see a Dr. Engels.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: All right. Find out when Dr. Engels started Joe on the Aptril. Then I can decide whether I should take this defense as seriously as Dr. Huang seems to.
John Munch: ER faxed it over, Joe Blaine's tox screen, negative for narcotics and alcohol - but not for phenyloxypropilamine.
Detective Olivia Benson: Aptril.
John Munch: That's the baby.
Detective Elliot Stabler: How recently did he take it?
John Munch: Well, based on the plasma concentration M.E. says he took a pill about 24 hours before the shooting.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: But if a doctor didn't prescribe Aptril, then how did Joe get it? I mean a 13-year-old kid can't just buy it over the counter.
Odafin Tutuola: Might've got it from school.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: What do you mean?
Detective Olivia Benson: Well, you got millions of kids taking psychiatric meds - school nurse stations have more drugs than some hospitals.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: They're not handed out like candy?
Odafin Tutuola: Good as!
Detective Elliot Stabler: And the drugs are being traded, I've heard of some college students snorting Ritalin - just to help 'em get through exams.
Odafin Tutuola: Or to get a good buzz, and too stupid to know they're burnin' their own brain out.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: Well, I know one person I could ask.
Dean Reynolds: What's this, a hostile takeover?
Detective Elliot Stabler: Funny man! Are you Dean Reynolds, Chief Executive Officer of Tauscher-Leto?
Dean Reynolds: I am, and you are?
Detective Elliot Stabler: The police. This is Alexandra Cabot of the D.A.'s office.
Dean Reynolds: What are you doing here?
ADA Alexandra Cabot: Uh, this memo proves a direct marketing scheme wherein Aptril would be mailed directly to patients' homes. Do you recognize your signature Mr. Reynolds?
Dean Reynolds: Where'd you get that?
ADA Alexandra Cabot: This approves of giving doctors off-patent meds free of charge in exchange for their patient lists. Is that your signature?
Dean Reynolds: I don't have to listen to this. Ladies and gentlemen, we'll resume later!
ADA Alexandra Cabot: And this third memo threatens Tauscher-Leto employees with breach of contract lawsuits if they talk to either the press or law enforcement about the Aptril direct mailing scheme. Is that your signature?
ADA Alexandra Cabot: Dr. Petrus, I thought you were here as a scientist, not a storyteller?
Detective Olivia Benson: Joe, why did you shoot Luke and Tyrell?
[sets out pictures of the victims on the table]
Joe Blaine: [looking at pictures] I don't know them.
Detective Olivia Benson: You don't know them? You told us that you went to school with them.
Joe Blaine: No, I didn't.
Detective Olivia Benson: Joe. Joe, look at me.
[Joe looks up and then looks back down]
Detective Olivia Benson: You're in serious trouble here, and you need to help yourself.
Joe Blaine: I don't want to.
Detective Elliot Stabler: [laying a drawing on the table] Did you draw this?
Joe Blaine: Where's my pen? I want my pen!
Detective Elliot Stabler: We'll get you one. I know you drew that now did you also do this?
Joe Blaine: Didn't draw that. Didn't draw that!
Detective Olivia Benson: [points to masked figure in the drawing] Joe, who's this? Who's this person here?
Joe Blaine: [whispering] Zoltar.
Detective Olivia Benson: Who's Zoltar?
Joe Blaine: [begins slapping himself and banging his head on the table] No! I won't! Stop! Stop, I won't!
Joe Blaine: [after Stabler tries to calm him] Zoltars gonna kill you! He's gonna kill you!
[Stabler picks him up out of his chair]
Joe Blaine: Get off! He's gonna kill you! Zoltar's gonna kill you!
