Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

Here are the final six Columbo Quotes Puzzlers. Which of the two choices is the fake quote. Which is the True quote and which murderer did Columbo speak it to? Which episode is the quote from?

----------

"No, what I was wondering about was, uh, how you put those things on?"

-OR-

"It's a terrific place. Just terrific. And will you look at that? Now that, that's a view."

----------

"I'm just eh, trying to tie up loose ends. You see, I'm compulsive that way. It's just eh, well that's what my wife says about it."

-OR-

"No, thank-you, sir. Well, maybe just one. Uh, two. Just a small handful. They're very good, aren't they?"

----------

"I - I didn't mean to irritate you. I'll have to look into this some other time. Perhaps if you're available tomorrow?"

-OR-

"I said, suppose it was you. I'm not saying it was you, sir. No, I was just thinking out loud."

----------

"Myself, I'm partial to peanut butter and jelly. But don't get caught up in the food and forget to come back."

-OR-

"It's true, I am in the market for a pair of shoes, and I was caught by the style. But they're not my size."

----------

"He said, and he repeated this. He said, technically, you're within the law."

-OR-

"Now this. This I find very, very interesting. This speaks volumes to me, sir. Volumes."

----------

"Crime is common, sir. Logic, well that's rare."

-OR-

"Oh, there's nothing dreamy about you, sir."

----------

THAT'S IT! That's all the Columbo Quotes Puzzlers. Let's see who gets the correct answers the fastest! Oh, and of course, I've got plans for the follow-up to these puzzlers. What I'm planning will also concentrate on the original 45 Columbo episodes. You didn't think these last six puzzlers would be my final words here, did you?!

Re: Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

So now you are sneaking on here in the middle of the night and posing your delightful puzzles?! Well...you can't fool me...

Ok..I know a bunch..but I will only post 3 that I think I know....


oh....and just one more...um...I could be wrong on this one...I probably am...but I think #42's real quote is "I said, suppose it was you. I'm not saying it was you, sir. No, I was just thinking out loud."...and it may just be from Etude In Black...as I say, this is only a stab in the dark! But somewhere in the dark abyss of my mind I remember a scene where Columbo is at the Bowl and he brings a typewriter...or a typ-er-writer along with him and he accuses this Maestro of murder...... Boy I really hated this episode!!!

Hey Headache!! Great job once again...I will miss these quote thingys when the last few are finally answered. But I anxiously await, as do others, the next stuff you have in store for us!

Re: Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

Hey Headache! I just realized that the other quote..the fake one..of #43..the one about peanut butter and jelly..is taken from Peter's website!! It is where he is saying to enjoy his site and go and get something to eat but to make sure that we come back and check out his site!!
Very Cool, Headache!

Re: Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

LOL, even when I get up at 6am, I STILL can't beat Cassa to the puzzle!

I am doing really poorly at this group. I think the one about the shoes is from "Catch me if you Can," when Columbo admires the shoes of the dead man and Abigail offers to give them to him.

I will have to think more about the others. I did think of "Etude" for the one Cassa mentioned, but I wasn't sure.

Re: Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

Is the dreamy quote from "How to Dial a Murder"? I remember the doctor saying "We all have our dream worlds, Lieutenant...even psychologists," but I don't remember what Columbo says in reply. This could be it.

Re: Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

Ok....this is just down right strange!! I posted my answers for 2 other quotes #41 & #43 and I even went back and looked at them last night and they were there....but now they are gone!! I am freaking out!! Maybe I won't post them again...I'll let someone else do it.
And sorry laura....Miss Quotehog will step aside for now!

Re: Re: Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

#40 and #45 seem to stump me, at least at the moment. As for the others....


#41 The "compulsive" line is from "Lady in Waiting."

#42 "Suppose it was you" is from "Etude in Black."

#43 "In the market for a new pair of shoes" is probably from "The Most Crucial Game" becuase it was the one containing the "What'd you pay for those shoes?" line written in by Peter Falk.

#44 "Technically, you're within the law" is from "An Exercise in Fatality."

Re: Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

C'mon guys...Can't you give me more time. I am on my honeymoon you know . I knew the one from Etude, but of course even being up at 6am wouldn't have got me ahead of Cassa with that one. obviously I knew the one from my favourite episode, Exercise in Fatality. And Headache, I think you should give Cassa an extra point for spotting the quote from Peter's website. Can't wait to see what is in line for us next Headache...

Re: Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

Paul, I think you will be on your honeymoon forever.

laura, I agree with you that the shoes quote is from Try and Catch Me.

And I think #40 is "No, what I was wondering was, uh, how you put those things on.".....from Lovely But Lethal...and said to Viveca Scott about her beauty mark. This one was pretty simple since it is the only episode which was left.

Re: Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

Hello everyone (Cassa, Laura, David & Paul!) I was going to post the answers a couple of nights ago, but for some reason, when I hit the "Reply" button, the website didn't want to let me actually reply. Maybe it was my computer? Anywho...

Lots of correct answers, and a couple of good guesses. Here are the answers.


"No, what I was wondering about was, uh, how you put those things on?"

Yes, Columbo says this one to Viveca Scott in "Lovely, But Lethal". He's questioning her about her fake beauty mark mole.


----------

"I'm just eh, trying to tie up loose ends. You see, I'm compulsive that way. It's just eh, well that's what my wife says about it."

This does indeed come from "Lady In Waiting."

----------

"I said, suppose it was you. I'm not saying it was you, sir. No, I was just thinking out loud."

Yes Cassa, there is an Alex Benedict. And that is who Columbo spoke the above line to right when you said he did in "Etude In Black."

----------

"Myself, I'm partial to peanut butter and jelly. But don't get caught up in the food and forget to come back."

Excellent work spotting that this quote is from Peter Falk himself in his welcome on his own website! But yes, the True "Columbo" quote was...

"It's true, I am in the market for a pair of shoes, and I was caught by the style. But they're not my size."

Columbo did say this to little Abigail Mitchell when she offered him her dead nephews shoes. Gross.

----------

"He said, and he repeated this. He said, technically, you're within the law."

Yep, this was from the episode, "An Exercise In Fatality." Columbo said it to Milo Janus regarding how he ran his operations.

----------

The line, "Crime is common, sir. Logic, well that's rare." is not a Columbo quote. It's a Columbo-ized version of a Sherlock Holmes quote to Dr. Watson. The True Columbo quote was...

"Oh, there's nothing dreamy about you, sir."

And yes, this is from "How To Dial A Murder". Columbo says it to the bad doctor as they walk from the house. That is one of my truly favorite of all Columbo lines from all 69 episodes!

----------

So there you have it. That's the end of the Columbo Quotes Puzzlers. I hope those who played along had as much fun as I did researching the quotes and creating the puzzles. And now for something completely different...

Re: Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

BRAVO! BRAVO!! BRAVO!!! Headache!!

Re: Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

Thanks, Headache. Superlative job, as usual.

Re: Columbo Quotes Puzzlers #40, 41, 42, 43, 44 & 45

Great work Headache...Can't wait to tackle the last words!
