  • Quotes (10)

    • Brown: You knew I was coming up here? Columbo: I knew. Then I didn't know. And then I knew.

    • Brown: Now why would anybody want to kill me? Columbo: Mr. Brown, I don't know. But you are a celebrity and there are a lot of crackpots in the world and there's just no accounting for people's reactions. I mean sometimes I even wonder about my wife. Not that she's a crackpot.

    • Columbo: I noticed that the arrangement was changed. Brown: You got a good ear for music. Columbo: Well, you know I'm Italian.

    • Pangborn: Well, still be awful lot of mountain to search for anything hidden or buried, a lot of mountain. Who could find it? Columbo: The guy who hid it.

    • Columbo: Where did you first learn how to fly? Brown: Lieutenant, I thought you knew my whole life history by now. Columbo: Oh no, no. Uh, you know, people think we got all kinds of records on microfilms, all we gotta do is push a button and, uh... Brown: Well, doncha ya? Columbo: (pause) Yes, we do. But not everything.
