Episode Quotes
Mark: What are you so uptight about? Jerry, we're just trying to help.
Jerry Jessup: Why are you a cop?
Mark: I'm not a cop. I just work for the man.
Jerry Jessup: Maybe you don't have a badge or a gun, but you're still a cop.
Mark: Now how can you tell that?
Jerry Jessup: If someone was in trouble, which side would you be on? Cops or robbers?
Mark: Whoever is right, only I don't call it cops and robbers.
Jerry Jessup: What do you call it?
Mark: Cops and robbers is a game that little kids play or that you see in the movies, but in real life, Jerry, it's right and wrong.
Jerry Jessup: I don't like you.
Mark: Oh yes you do, you're just trying hard not to.

Ironside: Al got away. We figure he slipped our roadblocks, got out of town. Now, if he's back, where would he be?
Jerry Jessup: You're not going to tell, are you?
Marty Jessup: Listen, Jerry, I was out of work and your mom was sick and this guy Al came to me with a--with a proposition. And when you're worried about your family sometimes you don't think straight, I'm thinking straight now.
Jerry Jessup: But telling...
Marty Jessup: If I knew where Al Carter was, I'd tell them in a moment. I'd keep him away from some other father who has a son.
