Episode Quotes
Mark: So far I've heard from two or three law firms. But I'm not sure if they want me or they're trying to kiss up to you.
Ironside: Of course they want you. They know you to be reasonably bright--except in the morning. You're a man with whom they can work well, good scholastic record, and with excellent references--mine.

Mark: Now the whole county backs up Ryan, but who backs up Marty?
Ironside: I get the feeling that you want to help Marty.
Mark: Well, I know him. I mean, if a guy was going to steal, would he do it in his own backyard?
Ironside: What does Ryan have?
Mark: A lot of circumstantial evidence and a previous conviction.
Ironside: What was taken?
Mark: Six thousand dollars, cap and gown money, but they didn't find a dime on him.
Ironside: That's not surprising. He could have hidden it.
Mark: Yeah, Chief, I know that, but I just don't believe that he could have done it.
Ironside: Well, then, do something about it.
Mark: Like what?
Ironside: You could... (holds himself back) ...that is up to you.
