Quotes

Lt. Jones: About those hoodlums - I don't think you'll ever tie arson on them. Why should they set fire to their own hangout? It's where these punks work on their own hot rods. It was a fire that led to their arrest. It just doesn't make sense.
Captain London: I was thinking about that myself.
McCuen: We haven't got anybody else.
Lt. Jones: Well, then you better get somebody else because the only business these crooks had was robbery!
Captain London: Robbery? I should have thought of that.
