: Lieutenant Columbo. Burt Gordon
: My name's Gordon. I'm with the District Attorney's Office. Lt. Columbo
: Yes sir, I know. Burt Gordon
: I appreciate it. Anything you can do for Dr. Flemming, he's a good friend of mine. Lt. Columbo
: I'll try.
: 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.
: 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.
: 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!
