Stone: I feel like a priest today, everyone unloading their guilt.
Benson: Well, that should tell you something. This wasn't police business.
Dr. Franchella: You really have to use handcuffs?
Fin: It's standard procedure.
Franchella: Just be careful. Once this nonsense is over, there's lots of children who still need my help.
Stone: There is still the ethical question that she might have saved some other child.
Zoe's mother: Don't. Just don't. She cut open my daughter's chest and ripped her still-beating heart out.
Zoe's father: We weren't even given a choice.
Zoe's mother: She stole body parts. There is nothing ethical about that.
Benson: And you just assumed the parents would consent? You didn't even have a brief conversation?
Dr. Franchella: With all due respect, there was another child to consider, a child that was alive.
Benson: But you didn't get consent from the parents.
Franchella: Why does that matter?
Benson: Because the law says you can't harvest organs without consent.
Franchella: Come on. You'd never bend the rules to save a life? I didn't think so. You don't strike me as an absolutist. So let's have some respect for each other. I could never do your job. And I don't think you're in any position to judge how I do mine.

Benson: I don't know. I need more time.
Pilot: It's wheels up now or this little boy is probably going to die.
Carisi: Hey Rollins, what was the dumbest thing you ever did as a kid?
Rollins: Me and Stevie Harris used to steal our dad's .22s and go down to the stump and shoot cans. One day I dared Stevie to hold the can at arm's length and dead-eye Amanda shoots a bullet hole through his shirt sleeve.
Carisi: Remind me never to go to the practice range with you.
Rollins: Remind me never to let Jesse leave the house.
Rollins: So she's been in the rec center this whole time, and her friends told us they hadn't seen her. They lied to us.
Benson: Pick them up.
She's gotta be here somewhere. Kids today don't go anywhere without their cell phones.Fin
