Fran: It all checks out, Chief. Sgt. Borden put ten percent of his salary into blue chip stocks every since the day he was married. That's a tab running of his holdings to date.
Ironside: Cash three thousand.
Fran: Well, according to Mr. Hamilton the Sergeant wanted to liquidate, pay off his mortgage, buy the cabin he was renting in Tahoe, just clear the debts for his retirement. The three thousand dollars was just an advance. He wanted to buy something right away.
Ironside: The boat.
Mark: Still leaves five hundred.
Ironside: He might have wanted to buy his wife a present.
Fran: Well, for a man who started out as a beat cop, he certainly knew how to make money grow.
Ironside: You had the same start. "Go thou and do likewise".
Lt. Carl Reese: Helen, did he talk about his cases with you?
Helen Borden: Sometimes.
Lt. Carl Reese: The Delaney case.
Helen Borden: He was very proud of that one.
Lt. Carl Reese: The heroin has disappeared.
Helen Borden: Disappeared? You mean you lost it?
Lt. Carl Reese: Stolen.
Helen Borden: Oh, I'm sorry, you worked so hard on that.
Lt. Carl Reese: Helen, now I want you to listen because I've got to ask you these questions, try and understand.
Helen Borden: Carl, is something wrong?
Lt. Carl Reese: Did Don ever talk to you of money?
Helen Borden: Money?
Lt. Carl Reese: How fixed you were, how much cash you had in the bank, things like that?
Helen Borden: No, he--he always took care of things like that himself.
Lt. Carl Reese: You don't know anything?
Helen Borden: No. Car,l why are you...?
Lt. Carl Reese: Yesterday he bought a boat.
Helen Borden: A boat?
Lt. Carl Reese: You didn't know. He paid $2,500 for it. All cash.
Helen Borden: He always wanted a boat. He always talked about how after he retired, he'd spend the rest of his life sailing and... Carl, what are you getting at?
Lt. Carl Reese: The heroin disappeared between the time Don picked it up in the property room and gave it to me in the courtroom.
