    • Dempsey: It's my hunch, but it's your butt too. I'm out of ideas, it's your country. You think of something.

    • Makepeace: You? Order me? Dempsey: You're damn' right. I'm a lieutenant and you… are just a sergeant. Makepeace: We… don't have lieutenants! Dempsey: You've got one now. Makepeace: Well, I'm not taking orders from him.

    • Makepeace: With the greatest respect lieutenant, there are several flaws in that argument. Dempsey: Believe me sergeant, believe this. [ He taps his nose. ] Believe the nose, the nose knows. I'm telling you.

    • Makepeace [ discussing their cover as a married couple ]: Somehow, I don't think this is going to work. Dempsey: Why is that? Makepeace: I mean, how can we carry this off if we don't even like each other? Dempsey: Who says we have to like each other? Lots of married couples hate each other's guts. We could be one of them.

    • Spikings: Sergeant Makepeace would be a good detective to show you around. Dempsey: Suppose we don't get along? Spikings: Oh, I think you'll get along.
