    • QUOTES (5)

      • (as they are leaving the theater)
        Ironside: It had to be the gardener. I told you that as soon as I...
        Eve: But Chief, you didn't have to say it in such a loud voice.
        Ironside: I did not raise my voice!
        Ed: Then why was everyone going "Shh"?
        Mark: And why did people keep moving away from us?
        Ironside: They were not going "Shh" and they were not moving away, except perhaps to leave the theater exactly as we are doing.
        Ed: We were asked to leave, Chief - remember?
        Ironside: No, we were not asked to leave. The manager and I had a polite discussion about the movie. He admitted to us that the gardener was indeed the killer, as I told you in the first 3 1/2 minutes. Since we knew the ending of this "suspense" movie and since he offered to refund our money, we decided there was no reason to see the remaining 98 and 1/2 minutes.

      • Eve: It's the first one of those (police shooting reports) I've had to fill out.
        Ironside: You just remember that he shot first.
        Eve: Chief, did you ever... did you ever have to kill anyone?
        Ironside: Yes.
        Eve: Just wish it hadn't happened so, so fast. One minute we were all having such a good time and the next minute... You know I shot him by reflex, Chief. He was shooting and I shot back.
        Ironside: Which is exactly what you should have done.
        Eve: I guess so. But he was so young.
        Mark: Nobody with a gun is young. You give a kid an equalizer and he ages plenty fast.

      • Ironside: Eve, you're not... you are not responsible for this. You had a job to do, you did it honestly and to the best of your ability.
        Eve: But it hurts. It hurts, Chief.
        Ironside: If it didn't, you wouldn't be worth a damn.

      • Ed: She'll get over it (the shooting), won't she, Chief?
        Ironside: Ed, you don't get over it. You adjust to it.

      • Eve: To work.
        Ironside: Which is?
        Eve: Billy's employer. Harry may have paid him a visit there.
        Ironside: I was wondering when you'd think of that. Ed.
        Ed: We'll use my car.
        Eve: I can handle this alone.
        Ironside: This is still a police force. And that's plural.
