Episode Quotes
Ironside: Well, what's everybody standing around for?
Ed: We're working on a top-priority case. What outranks that?
Ironside: The murder of a top-priority friend.

Mark: It feels strange driving on the left-hand side of the street.
Ironside: I trust you'll get used to it... before it's too late.

Ironside: You, uh, didn't mention the wheelchair in your last letter.
Toshio Watari: One does not visit one's misfortune on one's friends.
Ironside: But now the friend is here.
Toshio Watari: It happened over a year ago. An automobile, I was crossing the street. One minute walking, the next minute unable to walk again.
Ironside: I'm very sorry, Toshio.
