Episode Quotes
Ora Mae: (as to why Ansel shot Arcaro) Just for the hell of it, I guess.

Narrator: And so Ansel Boake and his bride came to New York to continue their honeymoon.

Parker: (to Flint) You were grilling that guy as if he were on parade. He couldn't remember his own name.

Parker: (to Flint about the shooting) This is spontaneous combustion. If the guy who did the shooting doesn't show his hand again there's one chance in a million we'll catch him.

Ora Mae: Where to?
Ansel: I don't know 'til I get there.

Ansel: (to Ora Mae) You think it ain't hard to find frog legs in New York, you gonna have to think again.

Ora Mae: (to Ansel) I'd just as soon own nothin' at all. Just move around and keep on movin'.
