Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to Amaro] We were making our last buy from Escobar. Somebody must've ratted me out. Next thing I know, I got a .38 to the back of my head. Luis jumped in, the gun went off. He got hit twice in the hip and the knee. I left Narcotics that day.

Detective Nick Amaro: That wasn't your fault.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Yeah, just like it wasn't my fault with Rollins. Do yourself a favor, Nick. Walk behind me.

Olivia Benson: [to Ana about Escobar] When you go visit him, does he ask you to relay messages?

Anna Tejada: When I visit him, he plays with Benito, Jr. We talk about feeding his son on a part-time job and food stamps.

Olivia Benson: And that's it?

Anna Tejada: Keeping us alive, avoiding being homeless. Yeah, that's kind of a full-time conversation.

Captain Donald Cragen: [about Gloria] Her mother just died. She was having problems with the insurance.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Come on, everybody has problems with the insurance. I'm sick that it's him, but we got our man.

Amanda Rollins: There's something else. The motives, it just...

Olivia Benson: Well, he's angry. You heard him.

Detective Nick Amaro: Yeah, at Fin, at Escobar, the lieutenant...

Amanda Rollins: Then how come none of them are the ones that got hit? The targets are always next of kin, partners. You know, maybe she is trying to make the people she's angry at hurt the way she got hurt when her father got shot.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Not Gloria. She's a sweet kid.

Captain Donald Cragen: Oh, boy. Did you know she was kicked out of the academy on psychological two months ago?

Gloria Montero: My name is Gloria Christina Montero. I consider myself a good person, a loving daughter and a responsible citizen. The actions I have taken are a last resort to address the unconscionable mistreatment that my family has suffered at the hands of the NYPD and other bureaucracies. In October of 1998, my father, detective Luis Rafa Montero, was shot multiple times during an undercover operation. Drug lord Benito Escobar was about to assassinate Detective Odafin Tutuola when my father heroically threw himself on the weapon and saved his partner's life. My father was given a disability retirement, but he never recovered. He fell into a depression and began drinking. In the spring of 2007, my mother was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer. When I asked the army for time off to deal with my mother's declining health, they told me that due to my "inability to perform my duties," I would be offered a general discharge. To help cover the cost of my mother's medical bills, my father took a security job. His former lieutenant, Toni Anne Howard, upon discovering this, informed on him to the department, who then terminated his disability benefits. As a result, we could not afford medical treatments that would have saved my mother's life. Eventually, we lost our home, as well. She passed away in this room in physical pain and emotional distress in August of 2012. A month later, I entered the police academy. I was however still depressed over my mother's death and my father's decline. The academy, rather than offer help, expelled me without due process. All of you who have destroyed my life will soon know what it is like to lose a loved one. I have police and military training. I know your tactics. Do not try to stop me.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Your father's a good man, Gloria. If it wasn't for him, I would've never saw my son grow up.

Gloria Montero: Because of you and the NYPD, my father lost everything: this house, my mother...

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: What happened to your family, I didn't know. I should have. I should have stayed in touch.

Gloria Montero: You didn't call, you didn't care. You didn't even know my mother was sick.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I didn't wanna talk to your father, okay? You're right, I was guilty. I didn't wanna think that what happened to him could've been me. Gloria, I can't undo what happened. I can't make it better.

Amanda Rollins: Once I heard you went inside, I had to come. You were there for me when...

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: When you took the bullet for me?

Amanda Rollins: Yeah, you'd do the same. It's what partners do.
