Ironside: If they can put men in orbit on time, why the delay in going to Los Angeles?
The Commissioner: How are things going?
Ironside: Getting underway.
The Commissioner: When I gave you the authority to take over this investigation, I didn't realize that you were taking over the airport, too.
Ironside: Maybe there are other ways of doing it, Dennis, but this is my way.
The Commissioner: Well, get things back to normal as quickly as you can.
Ironside: Perhaps it's normal for some maniac to try to kill me or somebody else, but it's not normal to include a hundred innocent bystanders in the attempt.
Ed: I didn't know you were such an authority on babies, Chief.
Ironside: Sergeant, when you know all there is to know about me, I'll be working for you.
Ed: Now the infant's name is Bobby.
Ed: Right. Same as yours, Robert. Did anyone ever call you Bobby?
Ironside: Not recently.
Ed: What about the meeting in the Commissioner's office?
Ironside: Still going on. Randall's conferring with the FAA, the FAA is conferring with the FBI. The whole alphabet's getting into the act.
