Insp. Bouchet: Yes, yes, yes. But, uh, are you sure that all the security precautions had been taken?
Monsieur Ribeaux: I've searched my memory. Could I have forgotten something?
Det. Fontenoy: [interrupting their discussion] Inspector, some residue of a footprint. I might have overlooked it, but I seemed to hear your voice calling out "Fontenoy, remember, no clue is too small."
[chuckles]
Insp. Bouchet: Did you also here me saying "Take it to the lab and get it analyzed, Fontenoy"?

Jim Douglas Is Back
7 December 2013 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Vincent McEveety took over directing duties on this third "Herbie" film that sees Dean Jones return as Jim Douglas, who has regained possession of Herbie, and has entered a Paris to Monte Carlo road race with help from his friend Wheely Applegate(played by Don Knotts). Trouble starts when jewel thieves hide a stolen jewel in Herbie's gas tank(located in a spot never seen before or since!) Herbie has also fallen in love with a light-blue Lancia car also in the race, which is a distraction Jim didn't need... Nice to see Dean Jones return, though the unexplained absence of both Buddy Hackett and Michele Lee is annoying. Really no better or worse than the previous film, with equally silly plot elements.
