Chief Frank Untermyer:
Where are you going?
Lieutenant Dan August: I'm a detective. I'm going out to detect.
Sergeant Charles Wilentz: A detective. That's what I want to be when I grow up.
Chief Frank Untermyer: There's no money in it.
When the detectives August and Wilentz go to the Ord house to meet up with George Ord they park their car at the curb. Later a patrol car arrives with George Ord and it stops at the same spot where the detectives parked their car but it is nowhere to be seen.
