    • Ironside: (feeling rejected after offering to help during the blackout) Well the only place for an old firehorse is in the barn.

    • Dave: Oh, Bob, am I glad your here, Lt. Holloway is good but he's a little green.
      Ironside: Now get that head checked out!

    • Dave: I guess the fellow that slugged me, sabotaged the generator. Sorry, Bob, afraid I blew it.
      Ironside: Not your fault.
      Dave: Funny our being together again in an office like this. Remember the first time, Bob?
      Ironside: Captain Healey told us he was going to try us out as a team.
      Dave: I guess maybe that year with you was the best year of my life. And now look at us.
      Ironside: You're up for retirement soon, aren't you?
      Dave: One more year then I've got a civil service job lined up.
      Ironside: That and your police pension, you'll have it made.
      Dave: Bob, Holloway took me off-duty, told me to go home and get some rest. I don't want to miss the action. How about if I hang around and help you?
      Ironside: Be like old times.
      Dave: Good.
      Ironside: There's the playing field, four square miles of darkness. Now what's the object of the game? Burglary? Murder?
      Mark: A lot of big fat jewelry stores in the area.
      Ironside: There sure are and just about every kind of target you can think of.
      Mark: Well, where do we start?
      Ironside: With a pattern, soon as the reports start coming in.
      Dave: I tried to get a CC unit but they are all tied up.
      Ironside: We'll manage.
      Dave: Bob, what if knocking something off, is not the object of the game? What if they have another target? Headquarters. Suppose there's something here they want to get.
      Mark: Like one of the prisoners in the jail section.
      Dave: Narcotics. The stuff they picked up in that raid is worth thousands and it's all right here.
      Ironside: It is a possibility, but there's a lot more out there.
