Packer: I hope I get good reviews where I'm going. I'm just glad it isn't New Haven.
Brady: It says in the script there's a pregnant pause.
Simon: This is only a half hour show, Mr. Brady. We can't wait for the full term of the pregnancy.
Risky (about Packer): If you're lookin' for his ghost you're too late. He took the film rights with him.
Ellery (about Veronica): I can see why she's a star. She's good.
Risky: Being good had nothing to do with it.
Brimmer: Do you have anything to say, Mr. Ross?
Risky: Yeah, I'm getting pneumonia.
Inspector Queen: Why didn't you call the police when it happened?
Brimmer: Simplicity itself, Inspector. I was afraid you'd bungle it. And you did.
Inspector Queen: Take It Off is hardly O'Neill.
Layton: I'm painfully aware of that, Inspector.
Veronica (to Ellery): You better hurry up and find my parrot. I feel naked without it.
Ellery: What did you do between 1937 and now?
Pop: That water hasn't run since Coolidge ran.
Ellery: Thanks, pop.
Pop: For what? I don't think either one of us did much.
Veronica: What are you waiting for?
Brimmer: A lady, Miss Veil.
Inspector Queen: Congratulations, Brimmer, you've done it again.
Brimmer: Done what?
Inspector Queen: Accused the wrong man.
Brimmer: You do seem to have dame fortune on your side, Queen.
Brimmer: The name is Simon Brimmer. Surely you've heard of me, Officer 937.
George Burns, playing the murder victim, was not listed amongst the guest stars, although he did get special billing in the end credits.
In this episode we learn that Inspector Queen once walked a beat in the Hell's Kitchen section of Manhattan during his early years on the NYPD.
Julie Adams would later go onto a recurring role on another Levinson/Link created show--Murder, She Wrote.
