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.

May 10th. Thank God for the rain which has helped wash away the garbage and trash off the sidewalks. I'm workin' long hours now, six in the afternoon to six in the morning. Sometimes even eight in the morning, six days a week. Sometimes seven days a week. It's a long hustle but it keeps me real busy. I can take in three, three fifty a week. Sometimes even more when I do it off the meter. All the animals come out at night - whores, skunk pussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick, venal. Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets. I go all over. I take people to the Bronx, Brooklyn, I take 'em to Harlem. I don't care. Don't make no difference to me. It does to some. Some won't even take spooks. Don't make no difference to me.

June twenty-ninth. I gotta get in shape. Too much sitting has ruined my body. Too much abuse has gone on for too long. From now on there will be 50 pushups each morning, 50 pullups. There will be no more pills, no more bad food, no more destroyers of my body. From now on will be total organization. Every muscle must be tight.

Context:
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.
