      • (McCloud rescues Officer Keach and apprehends the assailant)
        McCloud : Why don't you go book 'im, 'n I'll meet ya.
        Sgt. Dameron: McCloud, you're gonna hear from me on two counts. One, I'm gonna file an official complaint, and two, I'm gonna attach a recommendation for exceptional service.
        McCloud : I 'preciate y' kindness, Sergeant. (kisses her on the left cheek)

      • (Officer Keach, on decoy duty in the park, has disappeared, but McCloud isn't a member of the "team")
        McCloud: (to Sgt. Dameron.) Sergeant, you may not realize it, but three stripes don't outrank a marshal. Now, you can poke around here all ya want to, but I'm followin' her tracks.

      • McCloud: (Discussing horses with the blind paperseller) ...o' course, if he starts switchin' his tail, ya might as well tear up y' ticket.

      • (McCloud tries unsuccessfully to transfer out of Special Auxiliary Force VI)
        Chief Clifford: What does he know about interdepartmental cooperation?
        Sgt. Broadhurst: You mean dirty politics.
        Chief Clifford: That's what I said.

      • (McCloud may be in over his head)
        Sgt. Broadhurst: Now, what do you want me to do?
        Chief Clifford: Well, go help him! (Sgt. Broadhurst starts to exit) Oh, Broadhurst.
        Sgt. Broadhurst: Yes?
        Chief Clifford: If Dameron catches you, this department disowns you completely.
        Sgt. Broadhurst: (stoically) If Dameron catches me, I self-destruct.

      • (Special Auxiliary Force VI is having no luck capturing the Park Bridge murderer)
        McCloud: You tried usin' dogs?
        Sgt. Dameron: Yes!
        McCloud: I mean country dogs! City dogs like t' sleep at night.

      • (on the firing range)
        Sgt. Dameron: Nice and clean, Marshal. You're a credit to the mesa.
        McCloud: Thank ya, ma'am.

      • (Officer Keach had a premonitory dream before the murder of her friend Officer Charlene Davis)
        McCloud: Well, I guess there's more t' things than we really know about.

        Lt. Polk: Our park detail's been getting cut up by a maniac who operates around the west park entrances.

      • McCloud: (to Oficer Keach, over dinner at a restaurant.) You're tougher 'n a packsaddle, meaner 'n a bobcat, ya talk like a sodbuster, 'n still manage to be feminine.

      • (after using his "rudimentary" jujitsu on his karate instructor)
        McCloud: What're ya doin' for dinner tonight?
        Officer Keach: (furious) Marshal McCloud, I'm gonna get you.
        McCloud: (overjoyed) Ohhhhh, now you're talkin'!

      • (McCloud receives a white belt with his karate outfit, having studied only jujitsu)
        Officer Murdock: (transfixed by his close proximity in this all-girl police unit) You know what white signifies?
        McCloud: (smiling) Purity?
        Officer Murdock: (breathless) Beginner.

      • Sgt. Dameron: (reading McCloud's transfer order) No middle initial?
        McCloud: Nope, not a one.
