Quotes Edit

Rollins: The dad videotaped Tessa getting sunscreen put on. I mean, is that what parents do now? Just record everything?
Amaro: Well, you don't want to miss a moment.
Rollins: If my mother took me to Walmart for the Easter photo and to the mall for the one with Santa, by the time my sister came around? No one even bothered with that.
Olivia: By the look in her eye, Dia may have a connection to this baby.
Amaro: Well, what I saw in her eye was a whole lot of crazy.
Olivia: Gillian, If Hannah confronted Dia, a jury will understand her emotional state.
Gillian Webster: Would they? A jury would understand a 15-year-old being invited over there for an apology, and instead being shown a home-made sex video, so she could understand how truly beautiful their lovemaking was?
Olivia: But if that's how this went down---
Gillian Webster: No, no, it didn't. People always talk about the joy. They say, "How sad it will be that you'll miss her: her first kiss, her wedding.." What parents really want is to protect their child. I'm... I'm begging you, let me protect my child. It's the last thing that I'll be able to do for her. Please?
