      • Lucky: I told him I was Ellery Queen.
        Referencing the fictional American detective created by Daniel Nathan and Manford Lepofsky in 1928. The name refers both to the amateur sleuth that they created, and the pseudonym under which they wrote the novels and short story collections. The stories are best known for their "challenge to the reader" where Ellery breaks the fourth wall and invites the reader to try and solve the mystery before he does. The detective series has served as the basis for several TV series such as the 1975-76 television detective series Ellery Queen.
