      • (speaking to Ralph Fellows, who has recently been wheelchair bound and is facing the same surgery the Chief is)
        Ironside: You want me to tell you what it's like, okay? Okay. It starts out as pure hell and it gets worse. Two years after you think you've adjusted, a little thing like a woman stopping at your table and you start to get up and... They'll tell you. They'll all tell you to forget it. You can't walk like you can't fly and that's it. But you never could fly and you don't spend your life with people that can fly. It's a lot of hell, Ralph. It's impossible, Ralph. You can't take it, Ralph, any of it. Nobody can. But you do.

      • Sister Agatha: With him (Ironside), if you break even it's a victory.

      • (Ed and Eve enter The Chief's hospital room)
        Eve: Hi, Chief.
        Ironside: Any leads on who he was? Did anybody see a car? What about fingerprints? What about ballistics?
        Ed: Easy. One question at a a time.
        Ironside: Since when?
        Eve: How do you feel?
        Ironside: Curious. Where do we stand?
        Eve: Nothing on the getaway car, no prints anywhere.
        Ironside: That's great. All right, what was the take, Ed?
        Ed: A case of morphine syrettes, assorted methamphetamines. I've got a list.
        Eve: We got his picture out. All PDs, bus stations, airports.
        Ironside: It'll be on page 51 of the Dispatch, all the places where no one sees it.

      • Ironside: Meantime, you two (Ed and Eve) are still on the city payroll. You got a killer to catch. What are you doing here?
        Eve: Well, you were sick.
        Ironside: Well, you're not. Now get to work. Both of you. Both of you.
        Eve: I'm glad you're really better.

      • Ironside: I don't want ignorant people in my office even when I'm dead.
