      • Faber: He is clean, no criminal record or associations of any sort. No attempts made to contact anyone.
        Ironside: What about Muller's actions with the cab, and the acidic acid on the stamps and the money?
        Faber: You agreed that was circumstantial. It's quite possible the money paid Brandon for the stamps was mixed in with the money from the job. That would account for the acid smell.
        Ironside: That's reaching.
        Faber: I'm satisfied with it.
        Ironside: I'm not.

      • McArtle: All the information is in the file, can't you take care of it? I'm having my lunch. Thank you very much.
        Ed: Feels like I'm back home, Inspector. Lunch in one hand, phone in the other.
        McArtle: When somebody wants you to grab a broom, it never changes. Now is there anything else I can tell you about our methods?
        Ed: Yes, uh, chain of command, communications, you know how long it takes for it to come down and be acted on.
        McArtle: Once the brass makes up its mind, of course.
        Ed: Well, for example take the case of Muller. How fast did you get a tail on him?
        McArtle: We had a man outside Muller's shop five minutes after Superintendent Faber gave the order.
        Ed: And to take it off?
        McArtle: Even less. I was on late duty last night, got the order from the Superintendent myself. Got in touch with our man at Muller's home by radio.
        Ed: That, uh, clearance on Muller certainly came through in a hurry.
        McArtle: Well, it's computers, Sergeant, it's all in the machines. We don't run around with pipes and magnifying glasses anymore.
