Quotes:
From "Dragnet: The Big Seventeen (#2.4)" (1952)
Harold Everson Snr: I can't believe it. My own boy using marijuana. Can't tell you how I feel.
Officer Frank Smith #1: I'm afraid there are more folks feeling the same way before this is cleaned up.
Harold Everson Snr: But it would be different if Harry didn't have a chance. A good home, good training - the boy had the best I could give him.
Officer Frank Smith #1: Yes sir.
Harold Everson Snr: It's the last thing in the world I thought could happen. I never even thought about having an addict... It neve even entered my mind.
Sgt. Joe Friday: Yes sir.
Harold Everson Snr: The same for my wife. We never worried about it. Neither of us.
Sgt. Joe Friday: Maybe that's why it happened.
