Number 13 could also apply to Columbo. Remember the episode where the actress (who, I believe was played by Janet Gaynor), killed her husband because he stopped financing her comeback project, but she had a brain tumor or something so she didn't even remember doing it.

That was Janet Leigh. Agree its pretty close to what Columbo might say.

10/13, Like Columbo (sometimes), I was unsure at first (missed 3 of the first 5) but then it all clicked (got the last 8 right).
