--> '''Doctor''': Well, now. I suppose you're all wondering why I called you all here.\\
'''Mel''': To unmask the murderer, surely.\\
'''Doctor''': Well ... yes. Yes, right then. Well, I've pressure-locked the doors and there are guards posted outside, so nobody can leave this drawing room.\\
'''Mel''': Ready room.

** While it's clear he developed the habit out of a need for recognition and adulation, he does learn to try to lead the police - or Richard - instead and resort to summation by proxy when that simply isn't working... which just happens to be "almost always". (Although whenever there's a way he can do it as himself and get the credit he falls right back into this.)


Added DiffLines:

** In this series the trope's also well justified: Wolfe charges high fees (and occasionally is depending entirely upon the potential gratitude of non-clients for compensation), often seems to be doing nothing at all to earn them, and it's established in the setting that the local police and district attorney's office are very eager to take complete credit for anything he turns up and are at the same time looking for an excuse to bring him in for obstruction of justice. He has multiple reasons for wanting all interested parties in one place to report his activities to. (Not always truthfully.)

* Liz spends one ''Series/ThirtyRock'' episode watching ''Murder on the Orient Express'' and having a post-breakup one-night stand. At the end of the episode, she calls the entire cast into Jack's office and accuses [[EverybodyDidIt them all]] of orchestrating the one-night stand. The scene is a direct parody of the similar scene in ''Murder on the Orient Express'', with Liz presenting a "simple explanation and a complex explanation" for the one-night stand, with the simple explanation being that it just happened and the complex explanation being a conspiracy among everyone in the room to make her feel better, and eventually deciding to believe in the simple explanation even though the complex explanation is obviously correct.

* In ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' Akiko attempts one, but in addition to guessing the wrong person to be the MonsterOfTheWeek, she misses the fact that ''all'' of the season's [[BigBad Big Bads]] are also in the room.
