  • Quotes

    • (After shooting the jewelry heist.)
      Sgt. Broadhurst: Well?
      McCloud: I didn't see anythin' wrong.
      Sgt. Broadhurst: Hm, it's a good thing you didn't bust in here with a bunch of men.
      McCloud: Well, I still smell a skunk somewhere.

    • Max: (To Wild Bill.) The backers want lots of fireworks, lots of blood, real Bonnie-and-Clyde stuff.

    • McCloud: What sequence is that?
      Lynne: Oh, a big shootout and chase. The usual nonsense.

    • (The climactic shootout at Kimberly & Co., Jewelers.)
      Wild Bill: Beautiful! Now freeze!
      McCloud: (Leaping into open car from second floor.) Look out below! (Drives car off in pursuit.)
      Larry: (Still in the car, after playing dead.) Is that a take?
      Chief Clifford: (Entering scene through crowd.) Out of the way! I'm a real cop! (To actors in "police" car.) Follow that car!
      (Cut to Gilardi's office.)
      Vito: At this point, our boys should be safely on their way. (Laughs.) A perfectly executed invasion of Kimberly's.
      (Cut to the chase. Cut to Gilardi's office.)
      Vito: Should have heard from them by now. I wonder what could be going wrong?

    • McCloud: Larry Harris was beaten up last night.
      Chief Clifford: Good, saves me the trouble!
      McCloud: Well, that's got to prove something!

    • Chief Clifford: (In bed watching television, hearing Miss Gigi report that TV detective Larry Harris is "working with Marshal McCloud of the NYPD" on the homicide case.) Muriel... I'm losing my mind.

    • McCloud: Comin' in like a high wind, Chief.
      Chief Clifford: Good! Blow!

    • Larry: I had a situation exactly like this on one of my shows. It was called "The Case of the Purloined Parrot." The police were stumped on that one too, so I had the dead man's apartment dusted for fingerprints, and I was able to prove that, uh, that the janitor did it.
      McCloud: Now, this is not a TV show, Larry.

    • Vito: (To Max.) You screw up once more, and you're gonna take a walk in any direction you want... until your hat floats.

    • McCloud: (Watching the crew film a shootout in Central Park.) Ha-ha! Man, they sure do ham it up, don't they?

    • Chief Clifford: That's what made this city great, McCloud, because the people and the horses think!
