Re: AD LIB????

Although falling down the hill in "The Greenhouse Jungle" wasn't really an ad lib (more like an accident), the following dialogue between Columbo and Sgt. Wilson was a pretty good ad lib.

Columbo: "That's a little steep. But I tell ya' it was the quickest way down."
Wilson: "Oh yes sir, by far".

And then Wilson helps him up and brushes him off and Columbo gives him a funny look.

I think all ad-libbed.

I'll keep looking for them though...

Re: AD LIB????

Almost every actor in Last Salute For The Commodore seems to be doing a little.
