Quotes

[Epilogue to each episode]
Captain Braddock: [to the camera] I'm closing this case now - or rather, the courts will - but there'll be others, because that's the way the world is built. There are people who can slap you on the back with one hand and pick your pocket with the other. And it could happen to you.

If I recall correctly, the main character used to address the camera at some point to tell the audience, "Remember, there are people who will slap you on the back with one hand, and pick your pocket with the other!"
