    • Ironside: Feeling all right, Mr. Glass?
      Mr. Glass: Sure, I mean what could happen? Ed could get into trouble and have to force-land, or we could go into town and the street and the roof could be filled with crooks.
      Ironside: We will not lose that collection.
      Mr. Glass: I'm not so sure I wouldn't rather have it stolen here. Then I wouldn't have to go through this in six more cities.
      Ironside: You can get then stolen any place you like, Mr. Glass, except here in my town.

    • Mr. Glass: Would you like to take a look at what you're guarding?
      Ironside: Sure. If you're not afraid of my stealing it.

The diamond had been exhibited in different places until 1971, when it was purchased by an undisclosed collector from Texas.
