Adler: Red, I got a spot on them, a store outside of Ben Hur, 50 miles from here.
Red: Yeah, Well, move that roadblock on 288.50 miles north.
Adler: Figure they got that far?
Red: I don't know. But they don't either. They're just glad to be out. This is a Sunday drive for them.
Adler: Sunday drive, I like that. I never heard you use that one before.
Red: Is something bothering you?
Sally: It's perhaps premature, but... do you have an auxiliary roadblock plan for when they split up?
Adler: What makes you so sure they'll split up?
Red: If you got something in your craw, spit it out.
Sally: Their situation is an accommodation. I don't think they'll be together long. Haynes and Pugh are opposites, right? Haynes is a criminal's criminal. Robbery, man-on-man confrontation. Pugh has a rap sheet. littered with manslaughter, you name it. They'll split soon.
Adler: What about the hostages? What are they gonna do? Flip a coin?
Sally: It's happened before. It's a dilemma-they'll address" soon. That's why we gotta address It now.
Red: We don't have a dilemma. Neither do they. They'll get rid of one hostage and keep the other. If they haven't already.
Adler: Command, put your roadblock on 288, north about 50 miles.
Sally: We need to talk, Chief Garnett.
Red: You can call me Red.
Sally: Red... why are you so hell-bent on embarrassing me?
Red: I'm only hell-bent on one thing. You get to know me... you'll find having a sense of humor will get you a lot.
Sally: I have a fine sense of humor. But I won't be your straight man... so you can play hero to morons. who think you're Sherlock Holmes.
Red: Oh, shit! Damn. Arthur Godfrey said this stuff keeps you young. I'm not sure it's worth it.
Sally: So that's my answer?
Red: This is your first time in the field? I thought so. What were you expecting anyway?
Sally: What do you think I'm some dumb schoolgirl who's wandered into the boy's locker room? You're wrong. I don't mean to boast. but I happen to be one of the two most intelligent people in this fiasco.
Red: I didn't ask that. I asked what you're expecting.
Sally: I expected to be allowed to do the job assigned to me by the governor.
Red: I like the governor. He and I go quail hunting at least once a year. But he knows that win. lose or draw, this is my ship. Understand?
Sally: Yeah, I got that. You know what that is? That's anarchy. And I call that horseshit, to use a cowboy colloquialism.
Red: No , I'll tell you what's horseshit. Horseshit is responsibility. That's the guy who has sleepless nights and ulcers. If this thing goes bloody, the governor, he loses a few votes. Me, I'm the one who... I'll tell you what. You see me making a wrong move , go ahead and speak up. I might not agree , but I'll listen. As for wounded pride, I'll buy all the drinks when this is over , but right now I got better things to think about. That fair?
Red: Good. So who' s the other one?
Sally: Other one?
Red: You're one of the two brains. Who's the other?
Sally: Haynes. We tested him in prison.
