Ironside: Why did you turn left?
Mark: Well, when I asked you left, you said right.
Ironside: Then why didn't you turn right?
Mark: Because I thought you meant left was right.
Eve: Well, the Chief was right.
Ironside: Don't look so surprised.
Ironside: A good cop learns from his mistakes. Up to now I always figured that after the heist, Simms took the money.
Ironside: You may this hard to believe, but there is a remote possibility that I may have been mistaken.
Eve: Chief, she's here now, in person, the reporter who's been calling for an interview. I'll say this for her, she's persistent, and pretty, too.
Ironside: Miss Whitfield, one of your more important jobs is to protect me from unnecessary interruptions. Tell her I'm busy. (thinks about it) Uh, just a minute, Eve. You say she's a pretty girl?
Eve: Quite pretty.
Ironside: On the other hand, when have we ever neglected our friends of the fourth estate? Bring her in.
Ironside: A bird in the hand.
Mark: Is worth two in a bush.
Ironside: Wrong. This bird is worth two hundred and fifty thousand dollars.
