      • Ironside: Turks are quite familiar with Persian proverbs.

      • Ironside: On your way out, tell the reporters we expect to make an arrest within 50 hours.
        Detective Keeley: Do we?
        Ironside: No, but we've been telling them 48 hours for years.

      • (at the conclusion of his interrogation at his office)
        Pierre Dupont: Now there isn't anything else, is there?
        (opens door for team to leave and turns to Ironside)
        Oh yes there is: you forgot to tell me not to leave town.
        Ironside: Don't leave town!

      • (stopping Eve from staying with a victim)
        Ironside: No, she'll be better off alone. The more you get into police work, Eve, the more you will know that every time you solve a case, some innocent person ends up behind a closed door crying. It's tough. You've got to be tougher.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The Leaf in the Forest
        The title, according to Ironside, is from an ancient Persian proverb which he quotes in its entirety as:

        The best hiding places are these:
        for a book, a library
        for a man, a city
        for a leaf, a forest.
