Episode Quotes
Ironside: Who made this coffee?
Mark: I did. It's Swedish coffee, you put an egg in it.
Ironside: Next time try a fresh egg.

Ed: You're talking about a man (Larkin) you knew before he went to Vietnam. The Larkin who came back after two tours of duty in a shooting gallery where you aim at live targets...
Ironside: Ed, the essence of a man doesn't change.

Eve: For your information, I only took 28 minutes off for lunch.
Ironside: Don't gulp your food. From now on take a full half hour.

Mark: How'd you get all that so fast?
Ed: I have wonderful cooperation.
Eve: (noticing a woman's hair on his jacket) You must have.

Ironside: (upon finding Mark putting a bomb together) You going into the bomb- and mine-making business?
Mark: The only way I can understand a gadget is to put one together.
Ironside: Let me know before you start trying to understand what happens when it goes off. Ed called in?
Mark: Eve did. She said...
Ironside: Call Ed. He's with Rutledge. Or would you have to take a phone apart and put it together to understand how to use it?
Mark: I did that when I was a kid, Chief. A pay phone, to see how to get the coins out.
