Columbo: Dead Weight

I'll take that for a yes.
If Helen had just closed her eyes
to some of Tom's flirtations,

they might still be married!
Whatever happened
to your husband, Mrs Walters?

Who knows? Sent him out
for Chinese food 30 years ago

and I haven't heard from him since.
You know, I have raised that girl since
she was three years old, single-handed?

- Mrs Stewart.
- Hello, Lieutenant.

Well, I hope you don't expect to eat now.
No. I already had dinner.
At a lovely restaurant overlooking
the city. It was just beautiful.

You might have called. Did you dine alone?
Why, no. Not this time.
As a matter of fact,
I had dinner with General Hollister.

General Hollister!
What do you know about that?
Are you gonna see him again?

Well, he asked me to come out on his yacht.
Well, that calls for a drink.
You play your cards right,
bourbon today, champagne tomorrow.

Makes you kinda wonder, doesn't it?
About the general.

- What do you mean?
- I didn't tell him your name.

And I didn't tell him where you lived.
So, he musta gone
to a lot of trouble to find you.

- Curiosity about his accuser.
- Yeah.

Could be that.
Course, it could be something else.

Oh, thanks a lot, Lieutenant.
Am I so uninteresting that he couldn't
be interested in me for myself?

Oh, no. I didn't mean that at all.
You're a very individual person.
I was talking about the shooting.
I had second thoughts about the shooting.

You see, our traffic people
picked up a couple of kids.
