Ed: Yeah, but you're female. Chief, it's late and...
Ironside: No more Mr. Nice Guy. I need statistics for the speech and they're going to be accurate. Doing paperwork is like wrecking your car or going broke, there's no perfect time for it.
Fran: Well, it would be a little less painful if you didn't have a date.
Ironside: That is true.
Fran: Uh, I make robbery up 11 percent, burglary 9 percent.
Ed: Aggravated assault down 7, rape up 1. Hmm, making more love than war. How's it look?
Ironside: Well, our friends will read it that the department is doing a good job and needs more money in manpower. Our detractors will read it that we're already overpaid and incompetent.
Billy: Are you afraid you lost face? Big deal.
Henry: (smacking his son) Now don't tell me I'm stupid or old-fashioned, or what I believe in isn't important. Pain hurts. It hurts at 20, 40, or 60, so don't tell me your pain is more important than mine or anyone else's. Tell it to me after you sacrifice something, built something, proven something. You fool. Chief Ironside wants you to give yourself up. So do I.
Billy: You've covered all the bases but one. I did not kill Frank. I don't care how it looks. I did not do it. Have some faith in me. Is that too much to ask?
