    • QUOTES (4)

      • Dr. Samuel Bruner: Does an individual have a moral obligation to fight against evil? One thousand words, to be turned in next Friday. Class dismissed.
        Street: Doctor Bruner, I'm sorry I was late but, ah, don't you think the answer to your question is rather obvious?
        Dr. Bruner: I don't think it at all obvious, Mr. Street. Whether or not to take action is always every man's private decision. Private and painful decision.

      • (breaking up a heated argument between McCabe and Luca regarding Luca's dating his sister)
        Lt. Harrelson: I want to know what's going on.
        Luca: Ah, it's nothing Lieutenant. It's just a friendly argument, Lieutenant, no trouble.
        McCabe: Not yet.
        Lt. Harrelson: Well look, whatever it is, you police officers work it out between you. This may come as a shock to you, but this is not American Bandstand, we're supposed to be on ready alert. Now get with it.

      • Lt. Harrelson: What's the time element?
        Mr. Jenkins: Two hours, three at the most.
        Lt. Harrelson: You better call the Chief. We'd better evacuate. I want to get as many people as possible out of that downwind area.
        McCabe: Lieutenant, there's a hospital about a mile form here. A lot of their patients probably can't be moved that quickly.
        Lt. Harrelson: We'll just have to nail Stockwell and his friends fast.

      • Police Officer: Well, what does your S.W.A.T. book say about a situation like this?
        Lt. Harrelson: I'm writing that chapter now.
