- – Elliot Stabler
- Sutton: I oversaw the design and implementation of various interrogation plans. Why would I want to hide that?
- Stabler: Nobody likes to be called a Torturer in public.
- Huang: Sutton is a respected psychiatrist. I've heard her speak on combat related P.T.S.D.
- Warner: Well, the problem is, she isn't treating it. She's causing it. So much for 2,500 years of "First do no harm".
- Huang: That's kind of black-and-white.
- Warner: I didn't know the Hippocratic oath was written in shades of grey.
- Faith Sutton: Our country's at war. I have skills to contribute to that fight. You really want me not to use them?
- Melinda Warner: You took an oath. You don't get to take a time-out because we're at war, because it's difficult to uphold. The oath was written for times like these.
Background information and notes
- Helios is probably based on the private contractor Xe (better known as Blackwater.)
