    • QUOTES (4)

      • (Mark and Ironside arrive while Eve is preparing a food basket for them to take on vacation)
        Ironside: What's going on here?
        Eve: We thought you might like a little something to take along on your trip.
        Ironside: Eve, I'm not driving to Outer Mongolia. I'm only going to the High Sierras. There are eating places all along the way.
        Eve: But think of the time you'll save not having to stop.
        Ironside: How much longer is it going to take you to save me all this time?
        Eve: Just a few more minutes.

      • (Mark is checking in with Eve via telephone)
        Eve: Tell the Chief it's very quiet here, Mark. I just talked to Ed on the phone and he suggested we mix up a small crime wave so the Commissioner will miss the Chief.
        Mark: I'll pass it along, Eve.

      • Ironside: How we doing, Mark?
        Mark: If you're looking for an easy buck, bet on this road to wipe us out.
        Ironside: Forest Ranger said it was no freeway.
        Mark: I call that honesty in government.

      • Eve: Chief, whatever happened to that dream vacation you were talking about for weeks?
        Ed: Yeah, that's right, Chief. You were going to break with the old routine, escape from the Hall of Justice rat race, breathe clean country air, talk to some uncomplicated, nice people for a change. What happened?
        Ironside: Good question. When I think of an answer worthy of it, you'll be the first to know.
