Brimmer: By the way, who was supposed to be the guest on tonight's show?
Brimmer: Uh, Tennessee?
Brimmer (to Eddie): Sorry I'm late. I was detained by autograph seekers.
Eddie (to Armitage): You know Nick. He doesn't like mind reading acts. They remind him of his ex-wife.
Inspector Queen (about Brimmer): I swear to you, Ellery, if he tries to bust open my case I'll detain him on his own lousy broadcast.
Brimmer: Expect my call in the morning.
Inspector Queen: That's all I need.
Velie: Inspector, I see you woke up.
Inspector Queen: I'm always awake when I'm working on a case!
Ellery: You wouldn't happen to know if Nick had a family, do you?
Velie: I do. He didn't.
Eddie: I didn't want any part of the business.
Ellery: And now you've got it all.
Brimmer: Perhaps you've heard my popular network radio show.
Flora: I can't recall, sir.
Inspector Queen (about Armitage): Phony as a three dollar bill.
