    • Inspector Queen: You're up early.
      Ellery: Excuse me. I didn't go to bed. I've been up reading.
      Inspector Queen: Well, that's the script for the news and weather program on TV, you read that a hundred times.
      Ellery: Well, it just goes to show you how stupid I am.
      Inspector Queen: Ellery, give it up. The case is closed, Ramon even saved us the cost of a trial.
      Ellery: He didn't kill her.
      Inspector Queen: What?
      Ellery: It's taken me this long, Dad, but I finally figured it out.
      Inspector Queen: Ellery--
      Ellery: The solution. The end of the case, it'll come at 10:25 tonight.
      Inspector: You're saying--
      Ellery: I know who killed Monica Gray. Dad, I'll make you breakfast. (Looks into the camera and pauses) Do you know who killed Monica Gray? Now, if you've been watching--closely--you have all the information you need. You know, for example, it's not the father, because I proved him innocent. Or did I? Maybe it's the mother. Or the son. Or the faithful secretary. Or maybe it's somebody on the sidelines. But don't go too far afield. It's not my father. At least, I don't think it is. Well, good luck--hey, you're probably way ahead of me anyhow. Hey, Dad--breakfast?
