Inspector Ghote's First Case

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

    Oh, that I knew where I might find him, that I might come even to his dwelling! I would lay my case before him, and fill my mouth with arguments. I would learn what he would answer me, and understand what he would say to me. Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power? No; but he would give heed to me. There an upright person could reason with him, and I should be acquitted forever by my judge.
    Bible: Hebrew, Job 23:3-7.

    Job, of God.

    Inspector Clouseau: Do I detect something in your voice that says I am in disfavor with you?

    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.
