      • Ironside: Mr. Comus, when you ask how the center panel was taken out, what you really want to know is who done it. Okay, this is Wednesday - the answer by Saturday.
        Mr. Comus: Saturday?
        Ironside: That's right. Sunday I've got a date with the 49ers. Anyone here want the Rams and 6 points?

      • Ironside: (hands the Lieutenant a candy wrapper) What do you make of this?
        James Edmond: Sloppy janitor work.
        Lieutenant Fitch: Chocolate Charlie, A Meal in a Mouthful.
        Ironside: Vital evidence.
        James Edmond:You're joking.

      • Ironside: Sunday I've got a date with the 49'ers. Anyone here want the Rams and 6 points?

        This is a reference to the San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams of the National Football League. In 1967, both teams played in the Coastal Division of the Western Conference of the NFL. The Rams won the division with an 11-1-2 record and the 49ers finished third with 7-7-0 record. Being in the same division, the teams met twice that year. On Sunday, October 8 in Los Angeles, the 49ers beat the Rams 27-24. On Sunday, November 5 in San Francisco, the Rams won 17-7.

        Since this episode aired on November 16, 1967, there could not have been an upcoming Rams-49ers game. Also, their respective records indicate that the Rams were a superior team that year; so a smart man like Chief Ironside should not have been offering a bet in which he would give someone 6 points if they took the Rams!
