Blaine: In Queens, we treat a victim like a victim.
Stabler: Then go back to Queens.

"What, did Cheney shoot somebody else?"
Cragen on the phone
Blaine: No wonder your partner dumped you.
Stabler: What'd you just say to me?
Blaine: You screwed her, now you're trying to screw me.

Cragen: You know why I put Blane with you?
Stabler: Because you started drinking again?
Cragen: So you know what you're like to work with.
Stabler: What does that mean? I don't lie to kids.
Cragen: He bends the rules. You do too.
Stabler: Not with kids.
Cragen: Do you want me to list every time you've crossed the line? You're a good cop. But God knows how Olivia put up with you for so long.
Stabler: Oh. Well, Olivia's a saint.

Blaine: Sorry about your shirt.
Stabler: Sorry about your face...Look, we don't got any other choice. Let's just work this case. Alright?

Blaine: Why would you let your little brother and sister fight your fight? What kind of man are you? Why are they in jail when the people who attacked you should be, huh?
Rudi: Because I got so damn fat, I let children beat me.

"People can't help being black or gay, but being fat, well, that's their fault, right?"
Stabler to Jessica
