Elliott: It was like a, it was like if there was a Hat Cop show and there was a Bank Robber show, and they did like a sweeps week's crossover movie of the week. Dan: That's what it — that is what it feels like. Like a, like a McMillan & Wife, like, sort of a... Elliott: Yeah. Dan: ... like a CBS Mystery Movie. Elliott: Like this is a TV movie CBS would make so they could try to spin it off into a show, if it got a big — like the way they did with Kojak. (I don't know if that was CBS.) The way Kojak was done. And like, Columbo was the same way, I think. So like... Stuart: And Battlestar Galactica. Dan: Mhm! Elliott: Uhh... Dan: Mystery show! Elliott: Yep! The classic mystery show Battlestar Galactica. Dan: Turns out, the Cylons did it. Elliott: There's — there's a bunch of regular people, like high-society types, and a Cylon in the room. And Detective Galactica — Detective B. Galactica:
"I think I know who did it."
Stuart: "Wait-wait-wait-wait-wait-wait-wait..." Dan: "Uh, one more — one more question." Stuart: "One thing I just couldn't understand..." Elliott: "One more question, Mr. Cylon. So you're a killing-machine robot?"
"Uh, yes I am."
"Uh, case closed. That's —"
Dan: "You say you're a human being. Now, uh, why do you — why are your eyes one red light that goes back and forth?" Elliott: "Uh, I have a condition."
"Oh, that makes sense. That makes a lot of sense. Uh, just one more question: if you're a regular person, why do you have big metal claws for hands? And why are you a robot?"
"Um, ah, ah —"
And the Cylon tries to jump out the window, but a cop leaps out of an ambush and tackles him.
"How did you know the Cylon was the one who did it?"
"Let's just say: I had a hunch."
Oh, he's also a hunchback — so that pun, so it's always a pun at the end of the episode: "Let's say I had a hunch."
Stuart: Looks at — he looks at the camera and says: "Caa-ase closed!" Elliott: It's called Battlestar Galactica: Hunchback Detective, stars the late Peter Falk, and a Cylon — it's always a Cylon who did it. And he talks like the guy from the Stolen trailer.
