Ironside: Well, the late Sergeant Brown.
Ed: I've been busy snooping. Where is everybody?
Ironside: Finding Mike a hotel, making sure he's not followed.
Ed: The car on your tail left you at City Hall and went on to a high-rise excavation.
Ironside: Essay Construction Company.
Ed: A division of Stanley Alexis Investments.
Ironside: Babe Alden's son. Alexis was the grandmother's name.
Ed: Friend of the family, are you?
Ironside: Call the Federal Penitentiary at McNeil Island. Tell the warden whenever Babe Alden has a visitor, Chief Ironside wants to know.
Ed: Chief Ironside is leaving.
Ironside: For a long overdue appointment.
Ed: Don't you want to know who's driving the car?
Ironside: Tony Hudson!
Ed: Tony Hudson was driving the car.
Commissioner Randall: Who is Tony Hudson?
Ironside: You knew him as Anthony Serbo.
Commissioner Randall: Oh yeah, the fish that got away. He followed you?
Ironside: Long enough to convince me that the contract on Jack Doyle's life is still in force.
Commissioner Randall: You pick him up?
Ironside: I don't want him yet.
Commissioner Randall: Ah, probably just reacting to what they read in the papers. Jack's death was established long ago.
Ironside: All the questions answered and all the answers believed because they came from you.
Commissioner Randall: You're not doubting me, are you?
Ironside: Time has passed and his son is alive. I can imagine a situation in which that might make some difference.
Commissioner Randall: Look, just because the boy is...
Ironside: Sgt. Michael Doyle is not a boy, Sgt. Michael Doyle wants to open his father's grave.
Commissioner Randall: I'll oppose that.
Ironside: As I've done... so far. But tomorrow morning, if I must, I'll help him get a court order.
Commissioner Randall: All right, as a friend, before we both get bloody noses, lay off.
Ironside: Now we're getting somewhere.
Commissioner Randall: All right, as an order, lay off!
Ironside: Lay off what? Lay off the moral obligation to a young man grown old before his time?
Commissioner Randall: Look, I flatly resent any implication that I'm insensitive to what he went through. Whether you choose to believe it or not, I'm not trying to play God! I will tell you this: stop trying to force my hand.
Ironside: You're taking the Fifth, Dennis?
Commissioner Randall: That's it, end of this interview.
Ironside: May I ask one favor?
Commissioner Randall: You may ask.
Ironside: Call Sergeant Doyle and level with him.
