- Jack McCoy: My mother shoved a box of Crayolas in my pocket, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in my lunch box, and sent me on my way.
- Serena Southerlyn: Sometimes I wonder how much of this is really for the kids' education and how much is just stroking their egos.
- Ed Green: (about legacy admissions): It's like affirmative action for white folks. Ain't that how George W. got into Yale, 'cause his daddy went there?
- (About Wyatt Scofield)
- Ed Green: Waters is right, he is a condescending bastard. I wanted to kill him myself.
- Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: This woman had an oophorectomy.
- Lennie Briscoe: You mean she had her oophers removed?
- Cantor (as he hands Briscoe a polaroid of the victim): For your book of memories.
- Jack McCoy: It's the American way. Yesterday's robber baron is tomorrow's philanthropist.
- Serena Southerlyn: What you're really trying to say is that cash trumps merit every time.
- Arthur Branch: And twice on Sundays.
- Lennie Briscoe: Hell hath no fury like a mother scorned.
- Lennie Briscoe: Those crime scene guys are highly overrated. The problem is, they all think they're cops.
