No, guess again

Clouseau: [answering the phone] This is Monsieur Gadoire - who is this speaking? 

Dreyfus: Don't you know? HmmHmmm! Can't you guess? I'll give you a clue - this is the man who hates you. This is the man who more than anything else in the world would like to see you dead and buried! 

Clouseau: ...are you the headwaiter that works in the little bistro on the Rue de Bazaar? 


Watching this movie 40 years on, it is incredible how fresh Sellers' performance is.  Everything in the movie is stale and dated, from the Palace Hotel in Gstaad to Plummer's disco collars.  But Sellers is nine kinds of perfect.
