    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Ironside pulls up to the victim's motel, two policemen can be seen removing the corpse on a gurney. However, in the next shot when Ironside enters the room, the corpse is still on the bed and the policemen come in and take out the body on the same gurney.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Ironside: This racket cuts across department lines, Carl. I'm calling in all the old pros I can spring loose.
        Lt. Reese: Always happy to solve your cases for you, Chief.
        Ironside: Thank you.

      • Gil Peters: (to Ironside's team about a new crime wave) We have a strong feeling that the victims don't give us the real story. The victims generally wake up the next morning with a headache, an empty wallet, and an acute case of embarrassment. They report the credit cards as lost and go home. By the time we get on to it, we're too late.

      • Commissioner Randall: We're right in the middle, Bob. They want this racket cleared up but they want it done quietly.
        Ironside: Quietly isn't going to produce immediate results, hoping either posters, pamphlets, TV, newspaper...
        Commissioner Randall: And a lot of conventions are going to think twice about coming here if they get the impression here that the city isn't safe.
        Ironside: No city was ever safe for people who accept invitations to strange rooms.
        Commissioner Randall: You can't change human nature, Bob.
        Ironside: And the city can't have it both ways.
        Commissioner Randall: You know that, but apparently the city fathers do not. My orders are to clear this up in a hurry with the least possible noise.
        Ironside: Except for me.
