Episode Quotes
Fran: Still nothing on Leo Holt. But I hit pay dirt on Myra St. John. She and Lennie Blake were married on September 13, 1965, under her real name. Six Brannick.
Mark: Six? Number six?
Fran: Right.
Mark: You got to be kidding.
Fran: No. Her mother thought that six was a lucky number so named her Six. Only the county clerk put it on her birth certificate in Roman numerals.
Ironside: V I.
Mark: Vi.
Fran: And that's what Lennie was saying when he died--Vi.

Myra St. John: When's your birthday?
Ed: July 27th.
Myra St. John: Oh, Leo. Signs are right for us, you know?
Ed: No, I didn't know.

Myra St. John: Until he decided that writing was his bag, not acting.
Ed: Is he a good writer?
Myra St. John: Who knows? No one ever read what he wrote, so he started taking trips.
Ed: Airplane, boat, or drugs?
Myra St. John: What do you think?

Ironside: Jamie mentioned another name during that rehearsal to day. Do you remember, Mark?
Mark: No, I don't. (Ironside writes "Gale Rink" on the chalkboard) Oh, that name. (Ironside writes "King Lear" below it) King Lear?
Fran: Shakespeare's?
Mark: Is there another one?
Ed: I flunked Anagrams One.
Ironside: Well, try Anagrams Two. See what you can make out of "Leo Holt."
Ed: L-E-O-H-O-L-T. L-E-O... Othello.
Fran: I still don't get it, Chief. Was Jamie trying to tell us that jealousy was the motive for Lennie's murder?
