Guess what? Guess the answers, that's what! Also, that's it. Fin. Done. 54 questions total. Now, what are the answers to the above? Paul? Leaper? Cassa? David? Laura? Buffy? Jody? Sissy? Mr. French? Uncle Bill? This here website is a real family affair. A true COLUMBO AFFAIR!

(And again, Leaper. I'm just joking around with you about totally ruining, utterly destroying, completely vanquishing and hopelessly beating to a pulp my best question of this last batch of questions. Hope you haven't taken any offense. You're just as Columbo-ishous as everyone else here! And hey, I mean that!)

Re: Columbo-Famous Last Words-#41 - ??

I got #41!! I got 41!!!....um...oh...forget it....

But I think I got some of these...here is my take...
I better type fast before David gets on here!!

#44..is "...come on now."

#46...is "what are you doing wearing that.."

#48...is "when will I..."

#50...is "you have no idea who took her...who took her.."

Loved your reference to Family Affair!! But you forgot Mrs. Beasley.... (...remember?...the doll? ) .....but it is a family affair here....oh dear!!! cassa is getting sentimental!!

Re: Columbo-Famous Last Words-#41 - ??

Oh...I forgot one...

#51...is "Your film will be starting in a few minutes."

Ok...I think I have been enough of a quote-hog...so I will step aside.....some of those last questions are kinda interesting though....

Re: Columbo-Famous Last Words-#41 - ??

And now I know what is going to happen....Paul is going to come on here and say that he knew all of the ones that I guessed!!!!! Right Paul???

Re: Columbo-Famous Last Words-#41 - ??

Ok...I'm going to leave now....I am having too much fun all by myself and it is starting to scare me!!!

Re: Columbo-Famous Last Words-#41 - ??

Eek! Sorry! I figured, what're the odds that he'd come up with that exact same question? Pretty slim, I told myself.

Heck, give David that answer!

Is #43 A, said by Ric Carsini in "Any Old Port in a Storm"? I could've sworn he said something like that, to which Adrian replies, "oh, yes, I think I do," and beans him.

Is one of #49's Lenore Kennicut, in "Death Lends a Hand," before she crashes into the glass table?

I think #50 is C, but I'm not certain.

For #52, I know one of them is Margaret Halperin in "A Friend In Deed," reminding her husband that her family money is her own... Until the Commish changes that.

More as I think of 'em.

Re: Re: Columbo-Famous Last Words-#41 - ??

Oh, and one of #45's, referred to in an earlier question, is, of course, Paul Williams, of "Ransom for a Dead Man."

Re: Re: Re: Columbo-Famous Last Words-#41 - ??

Gah! Final word! FINAL!

Oops.

Re: Columbo-Famous Last Words-#41 - ??

Not all of them Cassa, just 46 and 48 !!

Re: Re: Columbo-Famous Last Words-#41 - ??

#41 Maryann, "Sixteen," from the episode "Swan Song."

#42 D The word "dish" was used by William Haynes in
"By Dawn's Early Light." He refers to Rumford as
being able to "DISH it out but can't take it."

#43 A "I don't think you have any choice" was said
by Ric Carsini in "Any Old Port in a Storm."

#44 B I will concede to "come on now" being the
final words of the projectionist in "Double Exposure," although I could have sworn that his last words were "Don't fool around with that."

#45 Carol Flemming of "Prescription: Murder," the first Columbo murder victim, was the first to say her murderer's name as her last word. It was also the one to be said off screen, referenced by the doctor immediately after she dies.
I am fairly sure that Claire Daly said "Good night, Ward" as her final words, qualifying "Fade in to Murder" as the second such occasion in which the victim's final word was the killer's name.
Thirdly, Dr. Charles Hunter in "How to Dial a Murder." We hear him say "Eric" before the dogs attack. However, it can also be debated that his last word was off screen because Kim Cattrall's character later tells Columbo that the victim was calling for Eric when she saw the dogs murdering him.

#46 B "What are you doing wearing that..." are the last words of Eric Wagner in "The Most Crucial Game" because the killer has disguised himself as an ice cream vendor.

#47 C "Now quite frankly I wouldn't give..." (perhaps one of several instances in television to cut off a character before they are able to utter a word you cannot say on TV.)

#48 A "When will I..." are Tracy O'Connor's parting words in "Suitable For Framing."

#49 The two "let go" lines: "Death Lends a Hand" is the more obvious of the two. My guess on the second is "Dagger of the Mind." While I do not distinctly recall the line, it stands to reason because Roger Haversham was being restrained prior to his death.

#50 B "Do you have any idea - who took her?" were
the last words of Alvin Deschler in "Negative Reaction."

#51 I will have to concede defeat on this one. I suppose I was simply so intigued by the clippings from "Walking My Baby Back Home" that I never bothered to observe Dr. Willis' final words.

#52 "Money" was included in the final two sentences
of Tony Goodland of "The Greenhouse Jungle" and Margaret Halperin of "A Friend in Deed." Goodland says something like "If money's what it takes, money's what it'll be" just prior to being shot. Margaret Halperin's final sentence before dying was "My money, Mark, my inheritance."

#53 I will guess C, 61

#54 Roger is the most commonly used victim's first
name among the original 45 ("Dead Weight," "Dagger of the Mind," "Double Exposure")

Re: Columbo-Famous Last Words-#41 - ??

Wow, you people are good. No... great! For the answers just look at David's post. They're all correct except he didn't know #51. Cassa provided the correct answer there!

Re: Columbo-Famous Last Words-#41 - ??
