Episode Quotes
Perry: Anything interesting this bleak Monday morning?
Della: Oh, this little item on top might bring you a ray of sunshine.
Perry: Just this bare naked check?
Della: Just that bare naked 2,500 clams.
Perry: Della, when it's over a thousand you don't refer to them as clams. They become dollars.

Perry: Why hello. This is Lieutenant Tragg of homicide. Mrs. Allred. Her daughter.
Lt. Tragg: Are you Mrs. Allred's lawyer, Mason, or are you just acting as an M.C.? Perry: I happen to be her attorney, Lieutenant.

Perry: In view of certain past accusations, Lieutenant, I'd like this instance of my cooperation with the police duly noted. Remember, I turned [culprit] over to you.
Lt. Tragg: Oh, would carved in stone be satisfactory, or should we etch it in bronze?
Perry: Whichever is more expensive.

Della: All right, who really did kill Allred?
Perry: Overbrook. Burger had it right the first time. I just couldn't bring myself to the point of agreeing with him. Might establish a dangerous precedent.
