An area where fans from all over can ask each other questions and voice their own ideas and opinions on anything Columbo.

This Forum is fondly dedicated in memory of  "cassavetes45"  (Carleen Zink),

2 Lines Used Numerous Times

I have noticed two lines from Columbo used numerous times. Of course, always fitting the situation and aura.

“It must be a terrible shock”

Then after a bit of sizing up the scene, usually with what turns out to be the guilty party, the subject would say, “well if there’s anything else I can do for you”……

Which is followed by the second line, “maybe some other time”.

Gotta love it.
