Season 1 Quotes
Ellery Queen: Well, what was she trying to say, and why both plugs? Was she reaching for the clock cord and did she accidentally pull out the television cord, or was it the other way around? Is she saying something about electricity, about the failure of power? No. Or is she relating to the television set as a piece of furniture, a box, a console, screen? And what about that clock?

Inspector Richard Queen: You got something?
Ellery Queen: Very clever, Dad, very shrewd.
Inspector Richard Queen: Who? Who?
