Clock (season 8)
Kathleen: Mom says you're overreacting
Elliot: Well, I'll talk to your mother about that later. Now, you're gonna be late for school. Wait here, I'm gonna drive you
Instead, Kathleen stormed off to the elevator while Fin approaches
Elliot: Hey, Kathleen
Kathleen: I hate you!
Fin: Everything okay?
Elliot: Man, you're lucky you don't have daughters
Don: ...Your wife is here
Elliot turned around and saw Kathy sitting at his desk, looking at a picture while waiting.
Elliot: Okay, what is this? If you got something to say, just say it
Kathy: Why haven't you signed the divorce papers? It's been months, Elliot. You won't talk to me, you won't talk to my lawyer. The kids are asking if we're getting back together. I've run out of things to say.
Elliot: What do you want?
Kathy: An answer
Elliot: I don't know
Kathy: Well, I guess that's an answer. Call your daughter
Elliot went to Janey Speer's trial where he was testifying. Her attorney, Colette Walsh, used Elliot's problems with Kathleen as an example to his bias opinions regarding 17 year old Janey (who looks like a young child).
Judge Bernard: Do you have a daughter, Detective?
Elliot: I have 3 daughters and 1 son and they have nothing to do with this
Colette: Despite the fact that you're separated from your wife and hardly see your kids?
Elliot: Don't you talk about my family
Colette contined on about hos Elliot pulled Kathleen's boyfriend out of the car and threatened with violence if he didn't leave her alone. Elliot continued to deny relating to the case since he was chasing after a pedophile
Note: This episode marks the first of the six episodes of Connie Nielsen as Detective Dani Beck, Elliot's temporary partner. This episode also marks the return of Kathy as a recurring character, sparking the move of reconcilation of Elliot and Kathy. (Although technically, Scheherezade was the first appearance-return of Isabel/Kathy, filmed in the Spring of 2006, along with Informed to help fill in during Mariska Hargitay's maternity leave to fill up the new season. Scheherezade was suppose to be aired in the fall but was pushed back until early 2007)
