      • Ironside: (answering the phone) Ironside. Yes, Mr. Ward, I'll be happy to explain, I can be over there in ten minutes. (hanging up the phone) Now there's a ticket I thought I'd never cash.

      • (Ward looking at the ticket given to him by Ironside in court which reads "Never Bet on a Sure Thing")
        Ward: A little rash but very intriguing. In case you haven't heard, there are no sure things.
        Ironside: I agree, but sometimes the odds can be bent a little.
        Ward: Is this your way? You have a touch of larceny in you.
        Ironside: (looking at a two-headed coin) With most people, it seems to be just a matter of degree. It's a lucky piece.
        Ward: Are you always this oblique?
        Ironside: To the point then, I'm talking about jury fixing. In case you haven't heard, counselor, that's a felony.
        Ward: Nice change of pace. You could have been a good trial lawyer.
        Ironside: Coming from you, that's a compliment.
        Ward: Okay, you have my full attention.
        Ironside: And you have my opening remark.
        Ward: Comes closer to being an accusation.
        Ironside: Well, nothing personal. Statement of fact.
        Ward: Backed by evidence?
        Ironside: No. Personal conviction.
        Ward: (laughs) Come on, Chief, opinions are inadmissible, you know that.
        Ironside: Well, then, let me put it to you this way. Would I be here now if you didn't have a few suspicions of your own?
        Ward: Another quarter with two heads?
        Ironside: How do you figure that?
        Ward: You realize that trying to prove jury tampering while they're still deliberating would give me a good chance to move for a mistrial.
        Ironside: I don't expect your sympathy, just your co-operation. I'm gambling that you play by the rules.
        Ward: But I play to win. But your little note suggested to me that you might be willing to stick your head inside the muzzle of a very big cannon. So I'd be more than willing to help you explore this preposterous theory in the hope that you might step out of line and when you do, Chief, I'll pull the lanyard on you.
        Ironside: That's quite graphic, I'll keep it in mind.

      • Barbosa: (after hearing that Ironside handed his lawyer a piece of paper) That bulldog. Like he's got an old shoe. He's been chewing on me one way or another for ten years.

      • Ward: I thought I'd wait for the verdict at that restaurant across the street, maybe have some lunch. You care to join me?
        Ironside: Flip a coin to see who buys?
        Ward: Suits me. (they all call heads)
        Ironside: All four of you? You call it, counselor.
        Ward: It's tails. (in disbelief)
        Ironside: Your treat.
        Ward: This is a real quarter.
        Ironside: Think I'd take advantage of my friends?
