Quotes: Amateur Sleuth
Chris: I laughed my ass off at Chloe in this scene. “I’ll have my guy take a look at it.” The boys down at the crime lab are workin’ in shifts to verify the findings of the Smallville High newspaper!
David: I get that they’re trying to sell her as Nancy Drew with all of these really esoteric contacts and favors she can call in, but it’s just hilarious here that a grown man comes to her for help like this, especially considering it’s a situation involving a woman who can vaporize people.
Chris Sims and David Uzumeri on Smallville ("Covenant")

I wonder, Inspector, would it be a presumption if I were to offer assistance in some very humble way? You strike me as a most intelligent and, if I may say so, very impressive young man, but three murders in two days, well, that's enough to challenge the strongest mettle. And people do tend to confide in old ladies.
Miss Marple, A Pocketful of Rye
