- Jack McCoy: The law. Probably written on a cocktail napkin. Intent follows the bullet. It shouldn't matter if it was fired by a drunk or by Carrie Nation.
- Jamie Ross: Has he talked to you about this case?
- Lennie Briscoe: McCoy? Eh, briefings, witness preps.
- Jamie Ross: I don't mean that.
- Lennie Briscoe: You mean, has he said, "This one's for Claire Kincaid"? No. That guy got 12 months at Mount McGregor.
- "This is the District Attorney's office! We prosecute criminals! If you could stop thinking like a defense attorney maybe you'd grasp the concept!"
