Movie Quote of the Day (‘A Shot in the Dark,’ With an Unusual Deduction by Clouseau)

Commissioner Dreyfus [played by Herbert Lom]: “What about the maid?

Inspector Jacques Clouseau [played by Peter Sellers]:“The maid?”

Dreyfus: “Was he jealous of her, too? He strangled her.”

Clouseau: “It is possible that his intended victim was a man and that he made a mistake.”

Dreyfus [incredulous]: “A mistake?... in a nudist camp?”

Clouseau: “Nobody's perfect.”

Dreyfus: “Idiot nincompoop lunatic!”—A Shot in the Dark (1964), screenplay by Blake Edwards and William Peter Blatty, based on the stage play by Harry Kurnitz from the play L’idtiote by Marcel Achard, directed by Blake Edwards
