Jackie Blaine: I always knew I was a girl, but things were different back then: there were no pills, no counselors, no support groups, you had to live as a woman for THREE years before a doctor would even consider doing the operation. It was hard, but I had no choice. I was leaving a bar one night and these three men jumped me. They called me a freak. Then they pulled me into a vacant lot and they pulled up my skirt. One of them pulled out a knife and said 'If you want to be a woman so badly, I'll make you one', then he cut me!
Ellen Van Kuren: When Henry was 4, he walked into the living room in his cousin's tutu and announced he was a girl.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Lot of boys go through dress up phases, my oldest boy used to wear his mom's high heels.
Ellen Van Kuren: Did your son try cutting off his penis with a nail clipper and scream God made a mistake?
Detective Olivia Benson: Who were you out with Monday night?
Henry: Just a boy.
Ellen Van Kuren: A boy? Hailey, you're gay?
Henry: You still don't get it, mom, I'm a GIRL! I'm SUPPOSED to like boys.
Ellen Van Kuren: [to Elliot and Olivia about 'Hailey'] When she was 10 she drank bleach and she almost died. I realized then if I didn't let her be herself, I'd lose her completely.
Henry: What would you do? If your son came home in a dress, would you still love him?
Detective Elliot Stabler: I would try to understand. It would be hard and I'd probably make a lot of mistakes. But I'd never stop loving him.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Where'd you get the black eye?
Ellen Van Kuren: Hailey... I caught her climbing in the window at 2 in the morning Monday night, I demanded to know where she was, we had an argument, and she punched me.
Detective Olivia Benson: Monday night was when Mark was attacked.
Ellen Van Kuren: Oh... oh my God.
