      • David: I don't need that.
        Mark: Hey, if you're in shock you need to keep warm.
        David: All right. Thank you.
        Mark: Well, it's nice to know that you're human.
        David: Yeah. I guess whenever the Chief and I meet, the chemistry makes for antagonism.
        Mark: How come?
        David: Too many wars.

      • David: (starting to remember) Chief, Chief, something just came back to me.
        Ironside: Good.
        David: Sounds, like--like footsteps, hollow footsteps.
        Ironside: You were dreaming?
        David: No, no, I've never been so awake in my life. It was like the sounds were coming out of wood, like kind of boardwalk, a dock.
        Ironside: At a boat basin, a marina?
        David: Yeah. A cabin cruiser. There was a fight.
        Ironside: With whom?
        David: No, no, I wasn't fighting.
        Mark: Hey, but you've been roughed up.
        David: There were two men... fighting, hurting each other.
        Ironside: On the boat?
        David: Yes.
        Ironside: Then you went aboard?
        David: I must have. I'm not sure but I think there was a man lying on the deck unconscious.
        Mark: What happened to the other guy?
        David: I don't know. Water, uh, a--a faucet, some kind of valve being turned on. I remember the sound of water coming into the boat. It's no use, I can't put the pieces together. It's just a lot of fragments. What's keeping Ellen? I ought to be in a hospital.
        Ironside: Not yet, Mr. Wills.
        David: What?
        Ironside: You've painted a frightening picture. If you did hear water coming into a boat, and if you did see a man unconscious on the deck, unless we find out more and fast, that man is going to drown.

      • David: (waking up from sodium pentothal injection) Well, did I say anything important?
        Ironside: From the minute you walked through my door.
