Ostello: Gee, Cabbott, I uh… I just heard what happened, and that’s terrible.
Cabbott: Yes. Judy took the news particularly badly. She loved that cat.
Ostello: Don’t worry pal, we rounded up all the witches in the area, and they’re all lined up here. Go ahead and see if you can pick her out.
[Window lights up. Cabbott looks for a moment.]
Cabbott: Alright. I’m sure Witch One killed my cat.
Ostello: Great! Go ahead an tell me.
Cabbott: Tell you what?
Ostello: Tell me which one killed your cat.
Cabbott: Well, I just have.
Ostello: You have? Which one was it?
Cabbott: Yes. I’m quite sure.
Ostello: Sure it was which one?
Ostello: Oh. On the right? [Into the microphone] You, there! Number Five, step forward!
Cabbott: No, not on the right. You’re right Witch One did it.
Ostello: The one on the right?
Cabbott: No. Witch One.
Ostello: I don’t know! That’s why you’re here.
Cabbott: Yes, and I’m telling you. I’m sure Witch One did it!
Ostello: Well, don’t just stand there, tell me. We’ll put her away for good!
Cabbott: I am. Witch One did it.
Ostello: Listen. I’ll ask the questions around here.
Ostello: Which one killed your cat?
Ostello: Ok. Was your cat killed?
Ostello: And is the killer on the other side of this window?
Ostello: So which one killed your cat.
Cabbott: Yes. She landed her broomstick right on top of him. Poor guy never stood a chance.
Ostello: I don’t need the details, pal!
Cabbott: Alright, I’m just telling you Witch One killed my cat.
Ostello: Well? I’m all ears!
Cabbott: It was Witch One! [Brief glance] Or… maybe Witch Two?
Ostello: Oh! So there mighta been an accomplice?!
Cabbott: No, no, it was just One.
Ostello: Get your alibi straight, pal!
Cabbott: Look, I’m sure Witch One did it. Judy was a witness. She can confirm.
Ostello: We don’t have time to bring in other witnesses! Just tell me (since you’re so sure): who killed your cat?
Cabbott: Witch O…
Ostello: [Interrupting] I’LL BREAK YOUR ARM, YOU SAY “WHICH ONE DID IT”!!
Cabbott: Alright, calm down. Maybe we should do it by process of elimination.
Ostello: What? You’re gonna tell me which four didn’t do it?!
Cabbott: Right, and it wasn’t Witch Two either…
Ostello: Here we go again with the accomplice story!
[A cadet bursts in]
Cadet: Sarge! We’ve caught the cat killer!
Ostello and Cabbott: You have?!
Cadet: Yeah! Turns out, the source that told us about all the suspects forgot about one. It was a *source error* all along!
