Benson: I feel so guilty.
Barba: You? What did you do?
Benson: I called you about this case.
Barba: Don't. How long have we known each other? Five years?
Barba: The world was different then. It was all black and white, good guys and bad guys. It was High Noon, I was Gary Cooper. Then you weaseled your way into my world and all of a sudden there were shades of gray. There were blues and greens. You opened my heart and now I'm you. And I thank you for that. But I have to move on.
Stone: Do you feel guilty for what you've done?
Barba: Do you feel guilty for what you're doing now?
Stone: Answer the question.
Barba: I did what I thought was right.
Stone: Do you feel guilty, sir?
Barba: Yes. I do.
Stone: How did you know I'd say yes?
McCoy: Because you have more of your father in you than you realize.
Benson: I don't want coffee! You killed the baby?
Barba: I expedited his passing.
Benson: That's gonna be a tough hair to split in court.
Barba: Sometimes you have to do what's right without concern for the consequences.
McCoy: The law is what the statute says it is.
Barba: It's a shame. No matter how hard we try, we can't legislate morality.
McCoy: You know, I always wish the law was like chemistry. Add water, add heat, the damn thing boils.
Barba: Sans bias, sans judgment.
McCoy: I made a promise to my first wife never to eat at my desk. Sit.
Stone: I just wanted to thank you for your kind words yesterday.
McCoy: All of them true, all of them heartfelt. Sit.
Stone: I'm not staying. I just came to thank you.
McCoy: This is still my jurisdiction and people do what I say or they pay the price.
Benson: You don't have to prosecute.
Barba: If I don't, I'm saying that baby Drew doesn't have any rights.
Rollins: What about his right to die?
Carisi: Unfortunately, that is not in the Constitution.
Maggie: He can't see. He can't here. Look at him. He is all but dead already.
Aaron: You saw him. You can't tell me he's nothing.
Maggie: It's not like I was going to hold a pillow over his mouth. There are humane ways. We were just waiting for a court order.
Rollins: To kill your son.
Maggie: To end his suffering.
Aaron: I said STOP!
Benson: Yeah? Well, what are you gonna do?
Aaron: I'll shoot!
Benson: I'm a cop, and I know you're not a killer. And I know a paintball gun when I see one.
Benson: I talked to Maggie.
Aaron: How is she doing?
Benson: Honestly, she's not doing great. You took her baby.
Aaron: I didn't want to hurt her. I just wanted to spend time alone with my son.
Benson: I understand. Sometimes that's all I want to do too, but unfortunately the world doesn't work that way.
Aaron: There are so many cops out there...
Benson: I know. Tell you what. I know we can figure this out. How about I come in there an we talk face to face? [cops point guns]
Cop: I got a clear shot!
Benson: No guns! Stand down! That's an order!
Aaron: Okay. Just you. No weapons.
Benson: Okay. We can do that.
Fin: What are you doing? He's got a gun. Liv, do not go in there!

The drama follows Det. Elliot Stabler, a seasoned veteran of the unit who has seen it all, and his partner, Olivia Benson, whose difficult past is the reason she joined the unit.
Overseeing the team is Capt. Donald Cragen. Cragen's tough but supportive approach to the team's complex cases guides the squad through the challenges they face every day. Also featured is Det.
