        Lt. Ryker: No. Why?
        Webster: You seem a bit wound up.
        Lt. Ryker: I am wound up. A girl has just been kidnapped. Isn't that sufficient reason to be wound up?

      • (speaking to a gagged Andrea Sloan)
        Frank Queenlin: Did you ever wonder how come I, ah, I decided to put the grab on you? I mean, you know, instead of on someone else? Your picture, right here in this (the newspaper), about a month ago. Oh yeah, you were all dressed up, pretty white dress, and your old man was wearing a tuxedo. Remember it now? It was the debutante ball. Well, I got to thinking about that. And it just didn't seem right to me. Here I was, broke, hungry, I couldn't give you change for a penny. Yet there they go right on having the debutante ball for rich girls and their daddies in tuxedos. Somehow that just, that didn't seem right. But it's going to be right now. You just wait. Everything going to be just fine.
