        Ed: I've been busy snooping. Where is everybody?
        Ironside: Finding Mike a hotel, making sure he's not followed.
        Ed: The car on your tail left you at City Hall and went on to a high-rise excavation.
        Ironside: Essay Construction Company.
        Ed: A division of Stanley Alexis Investments.

        Ed: (sarcastically) Friend of the family, are you?
        Ironside: Call the Federal Penitentiary at McNeil Island. Tell the warden whenever Babe Alden has a visitor, Chief Ironside wants to know.
        Ed: Chief Ironside is leaving.
        Ironside: For a long overdue appointment.
        Ed: Don't you want to know who's driving the car?
        Ironside: Tony Hudson!

      • Commissioner: Who is Tony Hudson?
        Ironside: You knew him as Anthony Serbo.
        Commissioner: Oh yeah, the fish that got away. He followed you?
        Ironside: Long enough to convince me that the contract on Jack Doyle's life is still in force.
        Commissioner: You pick him up?
        Ironside: I don't want him yet.
        Commissioner: Ah, probably just reacting to what they read in the papers. Jack's death was established long ago.
        Ironside: All the questions answered and all the answers believed because they came from you.
        Commissioner: You're not doubting me, are you?
        Ironside: Time has passed and his son is alive. I can imagine a situation in which that might make some difference.
        Commissioner: Look, just because the boy is...
        Ironside: Sgt. Michael Doyle is not a boy, Sgt. Michael Doyle wants to open his father's grave.
        Commissioner: I'll oppose that.
        Ironside: As I've done... so far. But tomorrow morning, if I must, I'll help him get a court order.
        Commissioner: All right, as a friend, before we both get bloody noses, lay off.
        Ironside: Now we're getting somewhere.
        Commissioner: All right, as an order, lay off!
        Ironside: Lay off what? Lay off the moral obligation to a young man grown old before his time?
        Commissioner: Look, I flatly resent any implication that I'm insensitive to what he went through. Whether you choose to believe it or not, I'm not trying to play God! I will tell you this: stop trying to force my hand.
        Ironside: You're taking the Fifth, Dennis?
        Commissioner: That's it, end of this interview.
        Ironside: May I ask one favor?
        Commissioner: You may ask.
        Ironside: Call Sergeant Doyle and level with him.

      • Mike Doyle: Why do cops like Westerns? My father was the same way.
        Mark Sanger: Audiovisual aids.
