      • (while shopping for Eve's birthday gift)
        Ironside: For Eve? Don't be ridiculous.
        Mark: I think it'll look good in her apartment, Chief
        Ironside: That would be an eyesore in a garbage dump.

      • Ed: Chief.
        Ironside: No.
        Ed: Chief, we're running out of time. Tomorrow is Eve's birthday.
        Ironside: Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it your idea that we all go in together on this gift?
        Ed: Yes.
        Ironside: Then we should all be in agreement on a selection. Remember, Eve's very difficult to please.
        Mark: She's difficult to please?

      • Eve: You're going purely on faith.
        Ironside: It's been known to move mountains.
        Ed: Well, it doesn't wash away fingerprints; a perfect set of fingerprints on his palette knife. The only thing missing is an eyewitness.
        Ironside: No eyewitness, what a pity. You just missed perfection.
        Ed: All right, you explain it.
        Ironside: I can't. But a case with these inconsistencies bears looking into.
        Ed: Well, for starters, how are you going to find Danny Fiedler?
        Ironside: That's easy. I put you two to work.

      • Commissioner: I hope you don't intend to follow your simple-minded lead to Mexico. I will not sanction it.
        Ironside: Why not?
        Commissioner: You have plenty of work to do here.
        Ironside: That's true. Yeah, that's true.
        Commissioner: What, ah, what are you up to?
        Ironside: I'm agreeing with you.
        Commissioner: I don't like being agreed with in that tone. You do have other things to do.
        Ironside: I've got all kinds of things to do. As a matter of fact I'm very much overworked. I need a vacation. I think I'll take it starting right now.
        Commissioner: Well, that's the best thing you've said. (pauses for a moment) Wait a minute. Where do you intend to spend this vacation? In Mexico?
        Ironside: Dennis, you should have been a detective.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Sure beats cutting off your ear
        Refers Dutch Post artist Vincent van Gogh, who in December of 1888 cut off the lobe of his left ear during some sort of seizure.

      • Faith to move mountains
        The Chief is referring verse Matthew 17:20 of the Bible (King James Version).

        And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
