Episode Summary

Perry returns to his office late one night and finds an attractive woman climbing into his balcony window. She claims to be Virginia Colfax, the secretary of Ed Garvin who has an office next door to Perry's. Ms. Colfax says that she climbed into Perry's office in order to escape from Garvin's hot tempered wife but Perry later learns that Garvin is married to two women. Garvin and second wife Lorrie are sent to Mexico by Perry until he can clear up the matter but when Garvin's first wife, Ethel, is murdered there's an even bigger mess on the scene. And just who in the world is Virginia Colfax, the woman climbing in the window?moreless

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Perry: So discretion forced you to leave by the terrace?
        Virginia: It's the only way I could get to my car.
        Perry: And naturally you needed a gun for protection.
        Virginia: It was a flashlight.
        Perry: All right, Miss Colfax, we'll try to find your flashlight. (with a knowing smirk)

      • Della: Good morning, Perry, you look tired.
        Perry: I worked late last night. What's all this?
        Della: (reading from a newspaper article) "What prominent lawyer got out of line with a beautiful blonde in front of his office last night and why did the BB sprint to the nearest taxi for a fast exit? Considering the clues even we could solve this mystery." May I remind you, you may stand on the Fifth Amendment.

      • Frank: (as Edward leaves the office to meet his new wife Lorrie for lunch) Isn't love wonderful?
        George: I wouldn't know.
        Frank: You're a lucky man, you'll save yourself a lot of headaches. I hope Garvin knows where to buy his aspirin wholesale.
