“Well Inspector, we’ve made our double troublemaker face the music! Jacqueline Hyde broke out of prison once before. This time, there WON’T be an encore!” -- Renee Santz

"I must say, it's nice to see you sleuths again. BUT YOU'LL BOTH BE HISTORY ONCE CARMEN POLISHES OFF HER PLAN!" -- Jacqueline Hyde

"Sharp work, Inspector! You flattened Jacqueline Hyde and helped Beethoven re-score his Fifth and Sixth Symphonies!

Thanks to you, the most sublime moments in western music have been saved for us all to savor.

All eight escaped crooks are back in jail for good! But Carmen must have another operative on the job, because there's more trouble ahead! Can you take another case?" -- The Chief
