    • Miss Selby: Why, Lord Peter, are we not on your list of suspects?
      Lord Peter: Good heavens! Bunter, a glass of sherry for your master, quickly. Should you be on my list?
      Miss Cochrane: We are both talented artists, we both detested Campbell, and either of us - well certainly the two of us in concert - were capable of doing him in.
      Lord Peter: And did you do him in?
      Miss Selby: No, we didn't. But you might have done us the courtesy of accusing us.

    • Lord Peter: Nothing as virtuous as a bicycle. I mean, you can't imagine a cyclist committing a crime, can you? Except, perhaps, murder.
      Miss Farran: Why murder?
      Lord Peter: Well, you know, the way they all rush around in gangs on the wrong side of the road. No brakes, no lamps, no bells. Practically murder, what?
