Episode Quotes
Lt. Murray Simon: It matches your story pretty good.
Ed: You don't like the story, Lieutenant?
Lt. Murray Simon: Me? What's to like or not like? I'm in the complaint division. I just look into irregularities and I want to tell you we got plenty here.

(after he's been suspended)
Ed: I never knew you to pay such close attention to regulations.
Ironside: This office may be unorthodox, but it's still part of the police department. Now you're welcome here, very welcome, but for the time being you're just Mr. Ed Brown.
Ed: Thank you, but I think I'd feel a little out of place.

Capt. Barnes: You know, there no law that says a plain ordinary civilian-type citizen can't, ah, have two jobs. But if one of our men has trouble, it counts against him.
Ironside: I know. It's a little like having more than one girlfriend. The first one finds out, she figures she's not getting your undivided attention.

Ironside: Well, you dropped that on him pretty fast.
Lt. Murray Simon: It'll get to Ray Leonard fast.
Ironside: You're not so sure about him any more.
Lt. Murray Simon: I remember I got a note once, years back. "Dear Murray, When in doubt, put the pressure on. Sincerely, Robert T. Ironside"
Ironside: Pressure makes a good cop.
Lt. Murray Simon: Or breaks a bad one, which is precisely why we're here, right?

Ironside: You live well but not outlandishly, Mrs. Leonard. offhand guess is your husband's salary could support a home like this.
Pat Arnold: How would you know? You're an important man in the department. You have everything.
Mark: If you do, I'd like to get that dollar back you borrowed from me last week.
