Columbo: May I speak to you personally?
Mayfield: Go ahead.
Columbo: I feel uncomfortable.
Mayfield: In what way?
Columbo: In hospitals, around illness, I, uh, I feel kind of queasy.
Mayfield: Well, that's not uncommon, Lieutenant.
Columbo: I know. I faint. I mean, I actually pass out. And in my line of work, that's kind of embarrassing. Is there, uh, is there something that I can do for that?
Mayfield: There's only one sure-fire cure, Lieutenant. Stay out of hospitals as much as possible.
