Lt. Columbo: Point? No, no, no point. Just that, uh...she's a unique person. Agent Carlson: Good night, Lieutenant. Lt. Columbo: Uh, did she ask where the body was? Agent Carlson: No. Lt. Columbo: I didn't think so. Oh, listen, one more thing, Mr. Carlson. She didn't, uh, ask how her husband was killed, did she? Agent Carlson: No... Lt. Columbo: That's what I thought.

Columbo: Ah, just one minute, uh, Mr. Carlson. You see, it's like this: this is not just a kidnapping; this is a murder now...and I kinda figure that's my department. I'll see ya 'round.
