Harry Callahan: Yeah, 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'd you establish that?
Harry Callahan: When a naked man is chasing a woman through a dark alley with a butcher knife and a hard on, I figure he isn't out collecting for the Red Cross. (Leaves the room)
The Mayor: I think he's got a point.

The Mayor of San Francisco is outlining new guidelines that his office will be implementing for the City's police department. Harry Callahan explains his experience on the street.
Roddy Piper (as Nada) gives a bit of advice to Keith David (as Frank), after David tells Piper how he tries to live life free of problems, by not bothering anyone and staying in the "middle of the road."
Paul Gleason (as Clarence Beeks) says to two train baggage handlers, played by Senator Al Franken and Tom Davis, after they walk in on him just as Gleason is about to kill Dan Aykroyd ( as Louis Winthorpe III), Eddie Murphy (as Billy Ray Valentine), and Jamie Lee Curtis (as Ophelia). Gleason has figured out they are attempting to steal a top secret crop report from him before he can hand it over to Ralph Bellamy and Don Ameche (as Randolph & Mortimer Duke), so they can corner the stock market.
