Day 1: Favorite Detective - Detective/Sergeant Olivia Benson
“My mother was a rape victim. She got pregnant and she had me, so yeah it was personal. I think I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that that’s the biggest reason that I decided to become a cop, you know, to join SVU. I used to think that it was because I wanted to do something good you know, make a difference.”
- Olivia Benson, “Inheritance” (3.08)
Detective Stabler: The difference between you and all the victims is you can walk away. Detective Olivia Benson: (whispers) No I can’t.
- Olivia Benson, “Futility” (4.22)
“The truth is everybody changes everyday and some things are more devastating than others. But we never are the same and there are two ways to deal with these changes, you either accept them or you fight them like hell all the way.”
-Olivia Benson, “Closure” (1.10)
