      • Lt. Rambau: All right, but the boy's guilty and, technicalities notwithstanding, the law is the law.
        Ironside: Now listen to me, all of you. We're not a nation of robots. The law is more than just a lot of statutes on paper, it's a spirit, and that spirit speaks for people just as loudly as the letter of the law speaks for procedure and logic. Somewhere, Dennis, sometime the system's got to bend. Now you've both seen Manolo's father. You've heard what happened this afternoon. What Mark and I witnessed. It must be very clear that this is not a simply criminal case. Manolo Rodriguez is a confused, troubled boy whose anger stems not solely from delusion, but from unfortunate truths. Now what are we after here, revenge? Or are we after justice?

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Ironside: As Gilbert & Sullivan once observed: A policeman's lot is not a happy one.

        The Chief is referring to a line form The Policeman's Song which is from the Gilbert & Sullivan opera Pirates of Penzance.
