Joan Hudson: How should I behave?
Dr. Ray Flemming: You're an actress, Darling. Improvise.

Joan Hudson: I had to see you. When I'm alone, I don't know, I... I get confused.
Dr. Ray Flemming: Second thoughts?
Joan Hudson: A few.
Dr. Ray Flemming: It's a natural reaction, under the circumstances.
Joan Hudson: I keep wishin' there were some other way.
Dr. Ray Flemming: There isn't.
Joan Hudson: But, if you talked to her... if I talked to her...
Dr. Ray Flemming: Joan, don't be naive. We have one alternative. We decided that a long time ago.

Burt Gordon: Any, uh, any progress so far?
Lt. Columbo: Well, it's, uh, still a little early, but, uh, you know, sooner or later, something usually breaks.
Burt Gordon: Mmm-hmm. Well, let's make that "sooner," right, Lieutenant?
Lt. Columbo: Try my best.
Burt Gordon: Yeah, I'm sure you will.

Burt Gordon: I don't think I have to remind you that this could be... quite the little feather in your cap. Wrap it up and everybody's happy. Lieutenant?
Lt. Columbo: Um, yeah, I'm sorry. I was, uh, I was just thinking about something.
Burt Gordon: What was that?
Lt. Columbo: No, it's nothing important. It's, uh, Dr. Flemming, he didn't call to his wife when he came back to his apartment.
Burt Gordon: I don't follow you.
Lt. Columbo: Oh, well, I was in the bedroom. I was checking some things, and I heard him open the front door, and he didn't say anything, and... gee, it's funny how people are different, isn't it? Now you take myself, when I come home from a trip, uh, the first thing I do is I say, "Honey, you here?"
Burt Gordon: Exactly what is your point, Lieutenant?
Lt. Columbo: Point? Oh, I wasn't making a point.
Burt Gordon: It sounded to me as if you were. You heard the man admit that he had an argument with his wife. He probably still had a chip on his shoulder this morning.
Lt. Columbo: I was only tryin' to...
Burt Gordon: Lieutenant, I have already told you that Dr. Flemming is a close, personal friend of mine. Now I hope he's not going to be annoyed by a lot of tactless remarks, especially at a time like this.
Lt. Columbo: Well, I'm sorry, Mr. Gordon. I guess I shouldn't have mentioned it.

Burt Gordon: I think a toast is in order. To our host and hostess on the tenth anniversary of their horrible mistake.
[Carol Flemming makes a sound of protest]
Dr. Ray Flemming: You'd better rephrase that, counselor.
Burt Gordon: Pleasure, Your Honor. To the two finest people I ever knew. Here's to ten more years of happiness!

Dr. Ray Flemming: [after trying to get through hospital regulations in order to see his wife in intensive care] Hospital red tape.
Lt. Columbo: Yeah, I know what you mean, Doctor.
Dr. Ray Flemming: Well, let's get on with it.
Lt. Columbo: Get on with what?
Dr. Ray Flemming: YOUR red tape.

Dr. Ray Flemming: Are you sure of everything? Shall I do it over again?
Joan Hudson: No, I don't want to talk about it anymore!
Dr. Ray Flemming: Ah, but it will be fine, I promise you. Just pretend you're working on a role, right down to the props.

Dr. Ray Flemming: I didn't think you'd be up.
Carol Flemming: Don't bother to undress. You're sleeping in the guest room. I've turned down the bed.
Dr. Ray Flemming: Carol...
Carol Flemming: I think you should know I'm calling my lawyers in the morning.
Dr. Ray Flemming: It's been a long day. Do we have to start on that again?
Carol Flemming: You'll have to indulge me just this one last time, dearie. It's lucky for you I'm too well-bred to throw a tantrum.
Dr. Ray Flemming: All right. Fire away.

Peter Falk

Dr. Ray Flemming: Is there something I can do for you?
Lt. Columbo: Oh no, not really, doctor, no. I, I just came up to bring back your pen. I forgot to give it to you at the inquest.
[hands it over]
Dr. Ray Flemming: Well thanks, I missed it.
Lt. Columbo: You know, that's my trouble, I got a bad memory. My wife tells me I ought to have strings on all ten fingers.

Dr. Ray Flemming: Lieutenant, if there's any further way I can be of assistance to you...
Lt. Columbo: Oh, no, no, no, you just make out that list, that'll be fine, Doc.
Dr. Ray Flemming: Thank you.
Lt. Columbo: Oh, oh, one more thing, before I forget...
