(Columbo had previously opened a fortune cookie with a message that read, "Cheer up. There is more than one fish in the sea.")
Columbo: Oh, one more thing. Gee, I almost forgot what I came here to ask you.
Paul Gerard: Fortunately you remembered.
Columbo: As you're an expert on restaurants, sir, I wanted to ask you. Do you know anything about the Restaurant Developers Association?
Gerard: I don't know anything about it, Lieutenant. I've never heard of it. (turning to Eve) Have you?
Eve: No. No, Lieutenant, I'm sorry.
Columbo: Well, that's alright, ma'am. As the Chinese say, "There's more than one fish in the sea."
