She uses vinegar left with her dinner to help remove the rust from the door hinges, while lubricating the pins. She scrapes away the rust with a fork and is able to push the pins out, freeing herself from the room. Sadly not from the rest of the house.

** "A Stitch in Crime" is a perfect example: if Dr. Mayfield had simply killed Sharon Martin in the parking lot, no doubt he'd have been free, but the plot to make it look like a killing over drugs complicated the situation, caused far too many problems and led to his capture.

** "A Stitch in Crime" is a perfect example: if Dr. Mayfield had simply killed Sharon Martin in the parking lot, no doubt he'd have been free, but free. However, he raises minor suspicion from Columbo by casually adjusting his deck clock while feigning surprise on the phone over Sharon's death. Also, the plot to make it look like a killing over drugs complicated the situation, caused far too many problems and led to his capture.

** Dr. Barry Mayfield does one of these to Columbo to dismiss the theories that someone intentionally rigged Dr. Hidemann for heart failure, much to the Lieutenant's disgust. Columbo then slams a beverage pitcher, and tells Mayfield that he believes that he murdered Nurse Sharon, and makes a promise of police intervention to Mayfield that wipes the smile off his face.

Dr. Mason falsely believes his attack-dog murder is unbeatable, but his psychology major did not train him in thwarting police investigation. There was also an obvious motive due to the fact that Dr. Hunter was having an affair with Mrs. Mason and Mrs. Mason died under suspicious circumstances. [[spoiler:In a final act of desperation, Dr. Mason attempts to command his dogs to attack Columbo, but this fails miserable because Columbo hand the training disarmed. This helps prove the fact that he trained the dogs to attack with a secret word.]]
