Law & Order: SVU Season 21 Episode 18: "Garland's Baptism By Fire" Quotes
Garland: It's not the first time I've been cast out. I'm used to it.
Fin: Don't take it personal. There's a reason they call them a flock. They'll never leave him.
Laura: The photos are fake! You have to tell them!
Garland: What about the payments? $250,000! I can't make this go away!
Laura: Then our relationship is over. Nobody in our church will speak to you or your wife or your little girl again.
Chase: The separation of the payments was Sister Sherry's idea. I don't recall this last one. I'd say to ask her but we all know you can't trust a word she says. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a sermon to write.
Benson: About yielding not to temptation?
Garland: He's protesting way too much. He asked me to give him my word I'd keep him in the loop.
Benson: I'm so sorry.
Garland: So am I. I have a sick feeling that those donations had nothing to do with the Lord.
Rollins: I know you're new here but...
Kat: I'm not that new.
