    • Malloy: Reed? Reed: Yeah? Malloy: Don't say it. Reed: Don't say that the noise has started again? Malloy: Yeah. Reed: I won't.

    • Leroy the Horse Thief: (sigh) Well, now, I guess I'll be going to the calaboose for a spell. Malloy: It looks that way. Leroy: Well, might not be so bad. Probably do me some good to eat regular again.

    • Reed: (to Malloy, who abruptly stopped the cruiser and is looking around the police parking lot) What's the matter? Malloy: Looking for another car before this one drives me into a rubber room!

    • Malloy: (to a young girl just taken advantage of) Look Susan, it's not the end of the world. You're not the first girl to fall for a 24 carat phony. That's life in the big city and lessons aren't free!

    • Malloy: (to Reed concerning the young woman who had just been taken advantage of and the creep who did it) It all evens out. She had to learn the hard way, and one of these days, he's gonna play games with the wrong little girl and get a knife in his ribs.

    Notes (1)

    • What is not seen on screen is the aftermath of a shooting and accident like this. Anytime an officer discharges his weapon, it's a big deal and they would rarely be put back on the street so quickly, especially when it is against department policy to shoot at a fleeing car. Most likely, after on-site interviews, the two officers would be sent back to the station to start work on their reports while everything is fresh in their minds. They may also be put on administrative leave, if one or both suspects dies, until Internal Affairs concludes their investigation.

    Trivia (3)

    • As the strange sound begins in the police cruiser, at around 4:02, the house used in the TV show The Munsters can be clearly seen over Officer Reed's right shoulder.

    • As Malloy and Reed see the horse thief and speed up to cut off his escape on the road, Martin Miller, who is actually driving the police car, mis-judges the speed of the car and the distance he needs to stop, sliding on the loose gravel and rocks, and comes within an inch or two from smashing the front of the car into the rock embankment.

    • In the scene where Susu is sitting behind the white 1968/69 Mercury Cyclone, notice in the close-ups all across the rear of the car on the center trim, and over the name Cyclone on the right rear quarter panel. The manufacturer and model of the car are covered with a black cloth tape called "Gaffer's" tape. This is to prevent any legal issues with the maker of the car, since both names would be trademarked and copyrighted.
