Dirty Harry (1971)
John Vernon: The Mayor
The Mayor : Callahan... I don't want any more trouble like you had last year in the Fillmore district. You understand? That's my policy.
Harry Callahan : Yeah, well, when an adult male is chasing a female with intent to commit rape, I shoot the bastard - that's my policy.
The Mayor : Intent? How'd you establish that?
Harry Callahan : When a naked man is chasing a woman through a dark alley with a butcher knife and a hard on, I figure he isn't out collecting for the Red Cross.
The Mayor : I think he's got a point.
Chief : Callahan? You willing to take the money to him?
Harry Callahan : When will you people stop messing around with this guy? He's gotta be stopped now!
The Mayor : He's got a busload of kids and I can't take that chance. I gave my word of honor on it and he will not be molested! That's a direct order, Callahan!
Harry Callahan : Well, you can just get yourself another delivery boy.
