Re: Columbo Quote Puzzlers #34, 35, 36, 37, 38 & 39

Some interesting guesses. And loads of correct answers. Here are those correct answers again.


"Well, actually I think she knows less than she's telling." This hysterical line is indeed from "A Stitch In Crime".


"Maybe I'm trying to make something mysterious out of something that's open and shut just to sort of fit in with this room." Columbo said this to Ruth Lytton in "Old Fashioned Murder" after waiting all afternoon to speak with her while she wasted away the day up in her office wondering why Columbo and the other cops were spending so much time at the museum investigating the double homicide.


"Uh, nothing special. Just a napkin from the kitchen." Yes, this is from "Now You See Him". Santini had put the napkin over Jesse Jeromes face to make the murder look more like a professional "hit". Assassins do that sort of thing all the time, Cassa.



"But you know, somebody's been murdered. And you know what they tell me? They tell me folks around here, they kind of enjoy that sort of thing." Yes, this quote is from "Dagger Of The Mind" - although I've heard this spoken at Columbo conventions as well. HAH!


"That first day, I couldn't give a hoot in hell about a thief." Columbo does indeed say this to Dr. Cahill right at the end of "Mind Over Mayhem".


"It's in my hankerchief. Yeah, there she is." Yes, Columbo is talking about the bullet he dug out of the hotel room wall in "Candidate For Crime".

The final Columbo Quotes Puzzlers are coming very soon!

Excellent questions as usual, Headache. Thank you!

Ditto laura.

And Headache thanks for the info on the napkin thingy. I have never heard of that before. I haven't been hanging out with too many professional hitmen these days!
