Columbo and Brenner are conversing across the garden table and Brenner pours some juice from pitcher into glass filling glass about 1/3 full before he takes a sip. When the camera cuts to face Brenner the glass is shown almost full before the camera cuts again to show Columbo and glass is now less full again. Last camera cut again shows glass less full, but more full than after only sip taken by Brenner. Clearly editing shows different filming of sane scene. See more
Lieutenant, I think that I should warn you that I am not an unworldly man. I have powerful and important friends, even in the police department. I respectfully request... that you do not... harass me.
