Good morning, Doctor.

Good morning, Charles.

You're looking splendid.

I feel splendid.

Every day, and in every way,

you're feeling..

Better and better.

- Indeed.

- Well, won't you sit here?

Wouldn't you like me to..

Not unless you want to.

No. I'll be quite comfortable here.

Thank you.

Doctor, I'm surprised.

Oh, of course. You quit.

Three months ago.

You know, there was a time

when your forgetfulness...

would have made me feel

very rejected.

- Not now, hmm?

- Well, a little rejected, perhaps.

- Did you do it intentionally?

- Why should I do that?


I'm a patient you consider

to be completely rehabilitated...

on your recommendation soon to appear

before the sanity board...

your reputation on the line.

A little test, perhaps, hmm?

Not very long ago,

an obvious trick like that...

would have sent you

into a towering rage.

And poor old Clouseau

would have silently...

and passively submitted

to another massacre.

It's a miracle you were somehow able

to keep putting him back together again.

Poor old Clouseau.

There was a time

when I couldn't even speak his name.

And there was also a time

when you would joyfully have killed him.


I was a sick man, wasn't l?

We've come a long way, haven't we?

And you're not even a little bit

bothered when you think of Clouseau?

Not even a little bit.

- Do you believe me?

- If you say so.

Well, I could be lying.

You are a good psychiatrist,

but I may be a better liar.

For your sake, I hope you're not.

Sooner or later,

you'd run into Clouseau...

and then back here for life.

No more chance

of another hearing.

Coming here day after day, watching you

chain smoke into an early grave...

and knowing on certain mornings, you'll

be particularly morose and testy...

because you've had another fight

with your wife...

Iike this morning.

- How do you know that?

- It's the only time you doodle.

I keep forgetting you used to be

chief inspector of the Surete.

And will be again.

But Clouseau

is chief inspector now.

Till the better man comes along.

Well, in that case...

I think lnspector Clouseau had better

start looking to his laurels.

What? You mean...

The board meets at 2:00

this afternoon.

This afternoon?

If everything goes as I expect it to,

you'll be out of here this afternoon.

- Thank you.

- See you at 2:


Now, now, Doctor.

Some people would consider

your methods most unorthodox.

I was just making sure that you're not

a better liar than I am a psychiatrist.


Come along. Good.



Grab hold of this.

Pull. Pull on this.


Out with the bad air,

in with the good.

Out, in.

- Don't look, Fiona!

- Out, out.

And now the kiss of life.


Dirty old men!

Please, there is no need

to thank me.

- Thank you?

- For saving your life.


I was hit on the head.

Yes, you have received a bump

upon the head.

- "Beump"?

- What?

- You said "beump."

- Yes, I know that.

It is a large bump.

You could receive a concussion

from such a bump.

- Allow me to assist you.

- No!

I'm all right. I'm fine.

Never better.

Just a little shaky.

Probably the shock of...

I mean, the surprise

of seeing you here again today.

Well, I received a report...

from the sanity commission...

that they were going

to review your case today...

so I thought a few words from me

on your behalf...

Oh, God...

I mean, how generous of you, but...

Well, I'm not without influence,

you know.

Yes, I know that.

Yes, I have become

a rather important official...

in the department.

I've heard you are the new
