[bangs himself on the head] Allow me to introduce myself. I'm afried I must ask that no-one leave the room. Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Inspector Tiger.


Inspector Tiger:
[jumps] Where? Where? What? Ah. Me Tiger. You Jane. [growl] Beg your pardon, allow me to introduce myself, I'm afraid I must ask that no-one leave the room.

Lady Velloper:
Why not?

Inspector Tiger:
Elementary. Since the body was found in this room, and no-one has left it. Therefore... the murderer must be somebody in this room.

Colonel Pickering:
What body?

Inspector Tiger:
Somebody. In this room. Must the murderer be. The murderer of the body is somebody in this room, which nobody must leave... leave the body in the room not to be left by anybody.

The same drawing room, one lobotomy later, Tiger's head is bandaged]

Now for Sir Gerald. [exit]

Inspector Tiger:

Inspector Tiger:

Colonel Pickering:
By jove, he was right!
