Inspector Ghote's First Case

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

    A new talker will often call her caregiver “mommy,” which makes parents worry that the child is confused about who is who. She isn’t. This is a case of limited vocabulary rather than mixed-up identities. When a child has only one word for the female person who takes care of her, calling both of them “mommy” is understandable.
    Amy Laura Dombro (20th century)

    Inspector Clouseau: How can a blind man be a lookout?
    Chief Inspector Dreyfus: How can an idiot be a policeman? Answer me that!
    Inspector Clouseau: It’s very simple. All he has to do is enlist.
    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)
