    • Lord Peter Wimsey: Bunter, launch the Lagonda!

    • Lord Peter Wimsey: (visiting Harriet Vane in prison) I'll call again, if I may?
      Harriet Vane: I'll give the footman orders to admit you. You will always find me at home.

    • Lord Peter Wimsey: Miss Climpson, why do people kille people?
      Miss Climpson: I don't know. It's so dangerous as well as so cleverly wicked. I wonder how anybody has the effrontery to undertake it.

    • Lord Peter Wimsey: (the end of a long list of favours he asks of Parker) Find out if any bottle or paper that might have contained arsenic was picked up in that district.
      Chief Inspector Parker: Oh, is that all? Well, perhaps you'd also like me to trace the bus ticket dropped by Mrs. Brown outside Selfridge's in the last Christmas rush?
      Lord Peter Wimsey: My dear Parker, I would not dream of patronizing an officer of your callibre by setting him such a simple problem.
