As Green and Cassady try to prove that a pedophile was responsible for the murder of a young boy, they uncover evidence proving that the murderer was really another boy whom their suspect had held captive for five years. This forces McCoy to fight a defense attorney's claim that the boy's captivity made him a killer. After discovering that the boy had an abusive step-father, McCoy claims that the boy found a family in his kidnapper and was trying to get rid of his rival. Though he offers a deal, the boy, Tory, refuses it and is convicted of second degree murder. McCoy plans to go for the minimum sentence though and feels that no one won in the end.

- Roger Kraslow: I know you think I'm a monster, but I loved [him] like a son.
- Connie Rubirosa: Like a son you sexually abused.
- Roger Kraslow: At first, yes.
- Jack McCoy: I'm not in any mood for a sob story! You're a predator, Mr. Kraslow!
- Connie Rubirosa (to McCoy): We're getting our ass kicked.
- Jack McCoy: Thanks for sugar coating it. Any suggestions?
- Dr. Elizabeth Olivet (about Tory): I think he viewed Kevin as a rival for Kraslow's affections as twisted as that was.
- Connie Rubirosa: Tory keeps dusting something off his jacket and in the courtroom I thought he was wearing makeup, like my sister used to wear after a rough night with her abusive boyfriend.
- Jack McCoy: How thoroughly did we look into the Quinlann family?
- Connie Rubirosa: Not that thoroughly, they weren't suspects.
- Connie Rubirosa: What if Tory was a well-adjusted kid from a good family?
- Jack McCoy: Not our facts. (pauses) I hope we never have to try that case.
- Connie Rubirosa: It was a good win Jack.
- Jack McCoy: Nobody won.
