- Benson: We've gotten warrants based on less, why are you stonewalling?
- Cabot: This is different and you know it. Once a judge hears the suspect's history, he's gonna bend over backwards for the guy.
- Benson: I saw him, Alex. Plummer is stalking me.
- Cabot: How did he know where you were when he was in the interview room being questioned?
- Benson: He must've overheard.
- Cabot: Okay, how many businesses are in the area near Chauncey's?
- Benson: I don't know, several. Why? Where are you going with this?
- Cabot: Any decent defense attorney is going to say that Mr. Plummer was in the area running errands, that it was just a coincidence.
- Benson: He has killed four people and we're doing nothing.
- Cabot: How many drinks did you have? Olivia, the system made a mistake before, now everything we do is under a microscope.
- Benson: I wasn't drunk.
- Stabler: I didn't tell you about the detail because I knew you'd refuse.
- Benson: Only the rat-squad puts cops on other cops, Elliot, without telling them. I deserve better than that. Especially from you.
- Stabler: You've been under a lot of stress lately...
- Benson: I've always backed your play.
- Stabler: And I did what I had to do. The guy's murdered four people, what's to stop him from coming after you, Olivia?
- Benson: If you can't trust your partner, Elliot, it's time to get a new one.
- Benson: I'm fine.
- Stabler: I'm not. Some low-life's out to get you.
- Benson: If he wanted to take me out, he would've tried it already.
- Stabler: What about some dinner?
- Benson: When was the last time your kids saw your ugly mug?
- Stabler: Come on, I'll set an extra plate.
- Benson: Nah, see you tomorrow.
- "We blame all kinds of people for creating monsters. Why not ourselves?"
- – Olivia Benson
- Benson: You worried about something?
- Cragen: Your safety.
- Eric Plummer: I was innocent.
- Olivia Benson: Yes, you were, but then you killed four innocent people.
- Eric Plummer: Three innocent people, and one child abuser. I thought cops cared about the facts.
- Munch: The victims were pumped full of potassium chloride. Death was painless.
- Tutuola: Like that makes a difference.
- "It wasn't your name stenciled on that door, so whose ass are you really covering?"
- – Olivia Benson
- Stabler: Let's go.
- Benson: I can't, got to give my statement.
- Stabler: I'll take it.
- Benson: You, leave me alone.
Background information and notes
- This is the second episode in which Detective Olivia Benson has a stalker. Her first stalker was Richard White in the first season episode "Stalked". This is also the second time that she is forced to shoot a suspect, and the last fatal officer-involved shooting she is directly involved in until 2017.
- This is actor Ned Eisenberg's first appearance as Defense Attorney Roger Kressler. He played several other Defense Attorneys throughout the Law & Order franchise.
- Huang tells Olivia that he had a "close call" in which a prisoner nearly killed him before being stopped by the guards. A very similar incident occurs to him (again) when he and Stabler interview Death Row inmate Matthew Brodus in "Execution."
