Ed and Eve visit Freddie's, a house steeped in psychedelia, drugs and sex. They're looking for runaways, but Ed finds a lot of trouble, instead. He's accused of using excessive force when Barbara Chase, one of the women living there, is beaten. Worse for him, her father is prominent litigator Eldon Chase. With Ed suspended, Ironside, Eve and Mark must work to discover what really happened. Barbara tells her father she was only there to help people, but is she telling the truth? When Barbara later dies, Ed's problem gets worse and Ironside's investigation gets much harder.
Commissioner: I have no choice Bob, he'll (Ed) have to be suspended.
Ironside: Don't do it, Dennis. Ed's a fine officer. His future, his career, his entire life is on the line here.
Commissioner: I know that, Bob. I don't like it any more than you do. But the evidence...
Ironside: The evidence is pure baloney. A runaway girl who hates all authority and a weekend hippie who's lying as sure as I'm alive. Now I want 72 hours.
Commissioner: The papers...
Ironside: ...will scream. the mayor will be calling, and the city council will be breathing fire. I still want that time. Listen, Commissioner, I'm trying to save you the embarrassment of a public apology in all the papers when I knock this story into a cocked hat.
Commissioner: Seventy-two hours isn't much time.
Ironside: It'll have to do.
Ironside: Hello, Patti. They treating you all right downstairs?
Patty Larsen: Is that what you brought me up here to ask me?
Ironside: No. No, I was just trying to be pleasant.
Patty Larsen: So be unpleasant and let's get it over with.

Mark:Once I got busted for doing this, now I'm getting paid for it.
