[Paul Galesko is about to murder his wife] Paul Galesko:
I have this... dream, Frances. I'm working, and there's a phone call. He says, "Terribly sorry, Mr. Galesko, but - your wife's dead. Unfortunate accident," and then I always wake up. And I want to cry, because you're still alive, Frances. And I have nothing to face that day but another 24 hours with a domineering, nagging, suffocating woman who took all the joy out of my life.

Oh, I'm sure that we can find something nicer for you in the other room. Something maybe a bit warmer? What size are you? Do you know? Lt. Columbo: I think there's a misunderstanding. Sister: Oh, no, brother. No false pride between friends. Lt. Columbo: You know what bothers me? [Lt. Columbo goes down to the evidence room to follow up on an idea] Captain Sampson: Columbo! Hey! What are you doing down here in the dungeon? Lt. Columbo: How ya doing, Captain. Well, I was just checking out a few things; the Galesko kidnapping. Captain Sampson: Galesko? I thought that case was closed. Lt. Columbo: Well, you know me, Captain. Just uh, tying up some loose ends. Paul Galesko: [gesturing at Columbo's camera] Lieutenant, may I ask, what's the meaning of that? Lt. Columbo: You noticed. I'm sorry, sir, I tried to be inconspicuous. Paul Galesko: Well, you failed, miserably. Lt. Columbo: Well, look, I don't wanna hold you up any more. I want to apologize again if I caused any disturbance. Paul Galesko: All right, Lieutenant. Lt. Columbo: Ah, one more thing, sir. I almost forgot. One more thing that I wanted to check on. Uh, probably not important... um, [to Galesko's driver] Lt. Columbo: could you excuse us? Captain Sampson: Columbo, why, why are you wasting your time with this? Lt. Columbo: Because it bothers me, and I couldn't sleep, and uh, I kept thinking about it! Lt. Columbo: I'll tell ya, if I'm right about this, it's gonna tickle the life outta me! Lt. Columbo: [prepares to leave] Well, I'll be running along, sir. Thank you very much for the time. Paul Galesko: It's all right. Lt. Columbo: Oh, there's one other thing, sir, uh... it's a bit of a problem...
