David Janssen Quotes:

[the American flyers are driving the French drillmaster crazy]
Duke Sinclaire: We've got him out-witted! Our feet are *killing* him!

Sgt. Ed Musso: You're under arrest, Tom. The big one. Murder. The killing of Liz Thayer.
Sgt. Tom Valens: [slumping onto a chair in shock] Oh, no. When? How?
Sgt. Ed Musso: The custodian found her in Rustin's office. The place had been torn apart. She'd been choked and badly beaten. She was seen entering the office at 4:30, you were seen leaving around 5:00.
Sgt. Tom Valens: I went to see her, but the door was locked, I couldn't get in.
Sgt. Ed Musso: The custodian said he saw you with your hand on the knob like you'd closed the door. Tom, we found your fingerprints all over the treatment room!
Sgt. Tom Valens: You said the place had been torn apart.
Sgt. Ed Musso: I was being polite, it looked like a tornado hit it! All the files dumped on the floor, furniture smashed, even the Mexican nicknacks on the wall had been smashed, like some maniac was trying to destroy everything he could get his hands on.
Sgt. Tom Valens: Somebody's looking for something, and theyn can't find it. Somebody important. Somebody who's involved in this besides Rustin.
Sgt. Ed Musso: Sure, you! The boys downtown figure you've been pushing that Rustin gun story for so long you've flipped, and tore the place apart yourself!
Sgt. Tom Valens: The gun! That must be the answer to everything!

George Faber: The bell tolls. The Pope is dead. Listen to the bell.
[Crossed himself. Cut to multiple shots of mourners in the streets of Rome]
George Faber: This is the death knell that rings... only for the pontiff. Listen - there is a second bell. Soon they will be joined by other bells all over the city, all over every city, all over the world. The Pope is dead.
