Inspector Ghote's First Case

Famous quotes containing the words case, inspector and/or ghote:

    The definition of good prose is proper words in their proper places; of good verse, the most proper words in their proper places. The propriety is in either case relative. The words in prose ought to express the intended meaning, and no more; if they attract attention to themselves, it is, in general, a fault.
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)

    Inspector Clouseau: Do I detect something in your voice that says I am in disfavor with you?
    Chief Inspector Dreyfus: Yes. I wish you were dead.
    Inspector Clouseau: Well, of course, you are entitled to your opinion.
    Blake Edwards (b. 1922)

    Miss Ghote ... hadn’t the slightest intention of sitting passively by and allowing her neighbor the luxury of placing the teapot of her Episcopalian proclivities on her Baptist trivet.
    Alexander Theroux (b. 1940)
