      • Ironside: This whole day has been a pleasant surprise for me, Carolyn. You've held up even better then the cioppino.
        Carolyn White: Oh, bless you, Robert. You're still the back-handed compliment champion of San Francisco.
        Ironside: Uncontested. Only now that I'm in a wheelchair, people feel guilty when they get an overwhelming desire to knock me on my backside.
        Carolyn White: Well, you never fooled me. Under that grouchy hide beats the heart of a beautiful tyrant. That's why I proposed to you several light years ago. It's a pity you turned me down.
        Ironside: A tyrant can never accept someone else's suggestion, no matter how good it is.

      • Ed: I thought I turned that thing off.
        Mark: You did, just before you got turned off.
        Ironside: We just made another recording of her voice. I want the sound lab to make a comparative analysis of the two.
        Ed: Mmm. All things being equal, her voice quality should be the same on both.
        Ironside: Unless Carolyn White is telling the truth.
        Ed: How do we determine that?
        Ironside: We deduce, determine, and decide. It's called detective work.

      • Layton: You conduct during this investigation isn't helping matters.
        Ironside: What do you mean by that?
        Layton: You've been biased in her (Carolyn White's) behalf from the very beginning. Ironside: Layton, that's a lie.
        Layton: Oh come off it, Ironside. Everybody knows she's an old friend of yours.
        Ironside: It wouldn't matter is she was a complete stranger or my little old grandmother. She'd still get the same shake.
        Layton: Commissioner, you have the reports on the Chief's preliminary interrogations. You can see for yourself that they have put me at a serious disadvantage.
        Commissioner: Why didn't you notify her immediately that she was a suspect, inform her of her rights?
        Ironside: Because I chose not to.
        Layton: Your touching faith in Mrs. White may just get half our brief thrown right out of court. She told you she had a gun, she told you she went to Jason's office. Now both of those statements were self-incriminating.
        Ironside: I'd say her rights were never violated.
        Commissioner: Bob, you're close to her, very close. Maybe it would be better if you laid off the case.
        Ironside: Commissioner, I've been bending rules and busting criminals for 20 years on this force. If my honesty and my methods can't be trusted any more, maybe it's time to quit.

      • Eve: I'm still a woman and my instincts tell me that there is something wrong with the way she's taking this whole thing.
        Ironside: Women's instincts are what make them the world's lousiest detectives.

      • Ironside: Easy think. Simple conclusions based on obvious facts.
        Eve: What is it you want us to think?
        Ironside: Everything. Keep all the possibilities alive, but don't jump to any conclusions 'til you have all the facts.
        Ed: Are you still playing with the idea Jason White's alive?
        Ironside: I'm playing with the idea that this is all too easy. And Carolyn White is not a stupid woman.
        Eve: And it's your educated opinion that she's innocent.
        Ironside: I'm not interested in educated opinions, yours or mine. I want the truth. The pure hard to find truth.
        Eve: And I suppose it's up to us to find it for you.
        Ironside: Now that is an intelligent piece of deductive reasoning.
