  • Mixed Emotions

    9.5
    This episode highlighted the mixed emotions of Mark as he graduated from law school. It also showed the Chief trying to become more independent, anticipating Mark's increasing need to be away from the office. Mark faces conflict in his choice of career path as he tries to find evidence to prove a man innocent. He also is conflicted about the Chief wanting to be more independent. There is a humorous scene when Ironside goes for a driving exam and then wanting to drive when Mark is with him. The scenes with Ironside and Mark show the unspoken bond between the two men, the mentor and the friend. The relationship between them is changing, but still strong. Again the performances of Raymond Burr and Don Mitchell were wonderful.moreless

    • Mark: So far I've heard from two or three law firms. But I'm not sure if they want me or they're trying to kiss up to you.
      Ironside: Of course they want you. They know you to be reasonably bright--except in the morning. You're a man with whom they can work well, good scholastic record, and with excellent references--mine.

    • Mark: Now the whole county backs up Ryan, but who backs up Marty?
      Ironside: I get the feeling that you want to help Marty.
      Mark: Well, I know him. I mean, if a guy was going to steal, would he do it in his own backyard?
      Ironside: What does Ryan have?
      Mark: A lot of circumstantial evidence and a previous conviction.
      Ironside: What was taken?
      Mark: Six thousand dollars, cap and gown money, but they didn't find a dime on him.
      Ironside: That's not surprising. He could have hidden it.
      Mark: Yeah, Chief, I know that, but I just don't believe that he could have done it.
      Ironside: Well, then, do something about it.
      Mark: Like what?
      Ironside: You could... (restraining himself from telling Mark what to do) That is up to you.
