Reverend Jonathan Whirley's Memorable Quotes:
Sgt. Joe Friday
Reverend Jonathan Whirley
Ah, sure, but just like every other foaming, rabid psycho in this city with a foolproof plan, you've forgotten you're facing the single finest fighting force ever assembled.The Israelis?
Sgt. Joe Friday
Reverend Jonathan Whirley
Hold it right there, Whirley. Police officer, you're under arrest.I beg your pardon, what is this? Some kind of a feeble joke?Oh, it's a real knee-slapper, friend, if you consider California Penal Code section 4A, 4207A, 597 and 217 Theft, Kidnapping, Cruelty to Animals and Attempted Murder something to laugh about.I haven't the slightest idea what you're talking about.My partner and I witnessed that little torchlight picnic you threw last night, we're gonna put you where your kind always ends up - in a seven by seven foot grey-green metal cage in the fifteenth floor of some hundred-year-old penitentiary, with damp, stinking walls and a wooden plank for a bed. Sure, this city isn't perfect, we need a smut-free life for all of our citizens; cleaner streets, better schools, and good hockey team. But the big difference between you and me, mister, is you made the promise, and I'm going to keep it.

[everyone applauds]
