Fran: Schmidt, that was the name on the letter.
Ironside: Alice's husband.
Fran: And Alice isn't sure that her husband's death was an accident.
Ironside: She did mention it.
Fran: And she asked her old friend Chief Ironside to look into the matter. And Chief Ironside brought Officer Belding along just in case something developed.
Ironside: Are you surprised?
Fran: Not really.
Fran: I should be.
Ironside: But you're not, because you like my little hometown and you're curious.
Fran: Well, it might be interesting to see the environment that spawned "The Man."
Ironside: Who knows? You might even turn up some blackmail material.
Fran: And don't you think I wouldn't use it.
