Quotes

Sally Gerber: The idea is that an understanding of the particular behavioral case histories should, in parole situations, help the subject to avoid habitual traps and, in penal escape situations could, conversely, identify those self-same traps as an aid to apprehension.

Chief Red Garnett: Let me tell you something, Miss Gerber.

Sally Gerber: Sally is fine.

Chief Red Garnett: Let me tell you something, Sally. This is not a 'penal escape situation', this here happens to be a manhunt. And no talkin' in circles is gonna fix all that.

Sally Gerber: And what will?

Chief Red Garnett: That's having a nose like a Blue Tick, pasa medulla, with an antenna and a helluva lot of coffee.

Chief Red Garnett: [interrupting a confrontation] How you take your steak, Sally?

Sally Gerber: Rare.

Chief Red Garnett: Well, I'll just wipe its ass, hurl it through and you can tear off a slab. How'd that be?

Sally Gerber: On second thought, maybe medium-rare.
