Clouseau hits himself with the vase and stumbles, causing a gun in the rack to fire. The sound of a bullet ricocheting is heard, but the doctor takes buckshot out of Quinlan's behind. See more »
[Clouseau has dressed himself as a local doctor/dentist in order to gain access to the gothic castle that is Dreyfus' headquarters; he is now examining Dreyfus for a bad tooth, but accidentally puts his thumb in Dreyfus' eye instead]
OW! My eye!
Your eye? I thought it was your tooth.
Hmm? It IS my tooth!
I wish you'd make your mind up; I don't normally make castle-calls in the middle of the night yeu kneuw!

Inspector Clouseau...Commissioner Dreyfuss...Gerald Ford. What don't you have in this movie?
Funny film to watch again and again. The chemistry is perfect between Peter Sellers and Herbert Lom. There are so many jokes and laughs throughout, I usually pick up something new after each viewing, especially Clouseau's accent. The castle scene with the dentist visit has got to be one of the funniest moments recorded on film. You'd swear there really was nitrous oxide in the room. I always get a chuckle from the apartment scene in the start. I'd never knew how funny the use of slow motion could be. Timing of the jokes are crazier than a set of "parallels". Add Mancini's music which seems to fit each scene quite nicely, thank you.
Probably my favorite of the Pink Panther movies (next to A Shot in the Dark), you have to love Peter Seller's portrayal of the "hit and miss" wonder named Clouseau. Plus, Lesley Anne Down looks great as Olga and makes me appreciate a nice fur coat. Definitely a keeper.
