Law & Order: SVU Season 19 Episode 3: "Contrapasso" Quotes
A man's store burns down, so he goes out, buys a book of matches and some gasoline and burns down the arsonist's house. It's fair, so it must be just. A man sees his children die in front of him so he buys a gun, finds the killer, splatters his kid's brains all over the bedroom walls. That's fair! That's just! Why bother with cops and courts? Let the blood flow in the streets! Don't like it? Get a bigger pair of boots!Barba
Am I that predictable?Barba
Mrs. Karr: We fell in love. We wanted to start a family. So much for that.
Benson: I have a son. He is adopted. And he is what makes all of this worth it.
Mrs. Karr: That would just be a reminder of the night he stopped being a man.
Evelyn: But you're still going to prosecute me.
Benson: You didn't just punch him in the face or break his nose, Evelyn. You took a knife -
Evelyn: Yes, I took a knife. I took it for protection.
Evelyn: Then - you can't understand. You're a man.
Carisi: Listen to me, Evelyn. That man is a predator. What he did to you was wrong.
Evelyn: Yeah? What do you know about it? You can't understand what it's like.
Karr: Look, it was hard enough telling my wife that I went up to a hotel room and given what happened... my wife has totally forgiven me, haven't you honey?
Mrs. Karr: Of course I have.
Karr: So we'd like to put this whole debacle behind us so I appreciate what you're trying to do but if you don't mind, it's best if we just focus on my recovery.
Rollins: What are you doing?
Evelyn: I have to take meds.
Rollins: What kind of meds?
Evelyn: They're for anxiety.
Rollins: Meds, booze... what's going on in your life, Evelyn?
Woman: I'm not that good with faces. I'm more of a word person.
Fin: Here's a word for you. Focus.
Fin: That seem sketch?
Carisi: Well, people do lose their credit cards.
Fin: Especially after cutting off some guy's testes.
Benson: DA cleared me. They are closing the investigation into Noah's injuries.
Rollins: I'm so sorry you had to go through this, Liv.
Benson: Happy ending at least.
Carisi: I was about eight years old and I helped myself to some Rolos.
Fin: When I was that age, Jou-Jous were my thing.
Carisi: So my mom, she busted me. She made me go back in the store and cop to the whole thing. I cried. I cried like a baby. And the worst part was, I had to do it all over again come Sunday in confession. But as much as she busted my chops over it, I'm grateful at least she never told my old man.
Fin: My pops would have backhanded me if I did something stupid like that. I stayed out of trouble mostly out of fear.
