  • Quotes

    • Comandante Sanchez: I see you're a thorough man, Lieutenant, but the bull did kill Rangel.

      Columbo: Yes, I can see that but it's important to be thorough, especially when a man dies alone.

    • Sanchez: I hope you understand, Luis, that the Lieutenant is here as my guest. He has no official status.

      Luis Montoya: So inquisitive. I find him amusing.

    • Columbo: That shows you I don't know much about bullfighting.

      Ranch Foreman: Is that all, señor?

      Columbo: You know, I think my wife was right. There's something wrong with me. I'm supposed to be on vacation and right away I'm thinking like a cop. That's called, uh, occupational hazard.

      Foreman: Occupational hazard, what is that?

      Columbo: That's, uh, when wherever you go you take your work with you.

      Foreman: Oh, I see. We call that loco.
