Quotes Edit

Anita Van Buren: I'm fine, Lenny.
Lennie Briscoe: I just wanted to make sure.
Van Buren: You know, you nudge a witness in the right direction at a lineup. The gun was in plain view, not under the seat. We do that all the time.
Briscoe: You wouldn't have passed off those prints to the DA unless she told you there was a match.
Van Buren: Closin' that case got me noticed, Lennie. And I used to hear the whispers and the chatter behind my back. 'She got it because she's black'. 'She got it 'cause she's a woman'. And I never listened to any of that crap because I knew I had earned it.
Briscoe: You made Lieutenant because you're a great cop. All the drug collars you made, all the killers you put behind bars. This one case isn't gonna undo all of that
Van Buren: I'm not so sure, Lennie...I'm not so sure
