Dirty Harry

[After a battered crook has accused Harry of beating him]
 Chief: Have you been following that man?
 Harry Callahan: Yeah, I've been following him on my own time. And anybody can tell I didn't do that to him.
 Chief: How?
 Harry Callahan: Cause he looks too damn good, that's how!

 Harry Callahan: I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?

 [Harry is getting a dressing-down for his most recent arrest]
 District Attorney Rothko: You're lucky I'm not indicting you for assault with intent to commit murder.
 Harry Callahan: What?
 District Attorney Rothko: Where does it say that you have the right to kick down doors, torture suspects, deny medical attention and legal counsel? Where have you been? Does Escobedo ring a bell? Miranda? Why surely you've heard of the Fourth Amendment? What I'm saying is that man had rights.
 Harry Callahan: Well, I'm all broken up over that man's rights!

 [Harry Callahan has to explain why he shot a man]
 Harry Callahan: 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 did you establish that?
 Harry Callahan: When a man is chasing a woman through an alley with a butcher's knife and a hard-on, I figure he isn't out collecting for the Red Cross!


 The Mayor: Well let's have it.
 Harry Callahan: Have what?
 The Mayor: A report! What have you been doing?
 Harry Callahan: Well, for the past three quarters of an hour I've been sitting on my ass in your outer office waiting on you!

 Harry Callahan: You know, you're crazy if you think you've heard the last of this guy. He's gonna kill again.
 District Attorney Rothko: How do you know?
 Harry Callahan: 'Cause he likes it.

 De Georgio: Harry hates everybody. Limeys, Niks, Hebs, Fat Dagos, Niggers, Honkies, Chinks, you name it. Gonzales: How does he feel about Mexicans?
 De Georgio: Ask him.
 Harry Callahan: Especially Spics.
