Mrs. Miller: I'll take the baby. All you have to do is give birth. I'll raise it as your brother or sister.
Evangeline: What about Jim?
Mrs. Miller: I'll talk to him. Whatever this misunderstanding is -
Evangeline: Misunderstanding? He raped me!
Mrs. Miller: Where did you get words like that? [to Benson]: You're putting words in her mouth. If it weren't for you she'd never have tried to kill her baby.
Evangeline: No, Mama. I wasn't trying to kill my baby. I was trying to kill myself.

Deputy Chief: We're taking on Ohio?
Benson: More like Ohio is taking on us. There's a warrant out for your arrest too.
Deputy Chief: I'm flattered.
Benson: It's for conspiracy to commit murder by providing an abortion. I'm serious.
Deputy Chief: So am I. I'm a deacon in my church. I believe in the sanctity of life. But forcing a 13-year-old girl to carry her rapist's baby to term...

Mrs. Miller, I've been doing this for a very long time and sometimes the unspeakable turns out to be the truth.


The world is watching, and God will not allow you to kill an innocent baby.


I can't go back to Ohio! [points to her stepfather] He's the one who put this baby in me!


I know things are different here in New York, but she's not killing her baby.


Rollins: Can you tell us how you got pregnant?
Angeline: I turned my back on God. I didn't save myself for marriage.

Benson: Are there any signs of physical abuse?
Doctor: I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't in these situations.If I say yes I can't promise confidentiality. But if I don't report it I'm breaking the law.

Priest: So that little boy really ran away to New York?
Father: I don't care, as long as he's far away from my little girl.

False reporting is extremely rare. We keep this in the news and survivors will be afraid they won't be believed.


Benson: With all due respect, Chief, she's not my boss. You are.
Deputy Chief: That's true, but one misstep and we're out doing traffic stops with Dodds.
Benson: I don't care about her exploding clock. I'm not letting this go.

Hadid: If your other victims had been willing to testify, none of this wouldn't have happened.
Benson: Ms. Hadid, you're new to Special Victims, but we don't blame victims here.
