Ellery: What cab driver?
Inspector Queen: While you were loafing at the taxpayer's expense, we've been checking out leads.
Ellery: Trying to find out who put
the gun in my fish tank?
Inspector Queen: I see you've been busy too, Flannagan. (Flannagan smiles and shrugs) Velie checked out the cab companies, came up with the driver who dropped off a fare at our house yesterday afternoon.
Cabbie: Inspector Queen?
Inspector Queen: Yeah. Thanks for coming in. I want you to look at a picture. Is this the person who rode in your cab yesterday afternoon?
Cabbie: Yep, that's the one.
Inspector Queen: You're sure?
Cabbie: Sure I'm sure. How could you forget a face like that? Not to mention the things that go with it!
Inspector Queen: Thanks, you can go. (shows Ellery the photograph)
Ellery: Yeah, Alma.
Inspector Queen: I'll tell Velie to pick her up. On second thought this is one arrest I want to make myself.
Flannagan: Banner headline: "Ellery Queen Cleared, Secretary Nabbed". Gimmie a nickel, Junior, I want to phone this in while it's still hot.
Inspector Queen: Here. This one's on the house.
