Episode #3.2 - S3-E2

DI Humphrey Goodman: Hook-a-duck.
DS Camille Bordey: What-a-what?
DI Humphrey Goodman: Hook-a-duck. Every summer when I was growing up, a funfair would pitch up on the village green. There'd be a carousel and a ghost train and hook-a-duck. It's those little rubber ducks bobbing around on a paddling pool. You had to try and hook them with a little fishing rod and if you got the one with the star on its bottom, you won the most fantastic prize.
DS Camille Bordey: A-ha...what was the prize?
DI Humphrey Goodman: A goldfish. In a plastic bag.
DS Camille Bordey: You had a very dull childhood, didn't you?
DI Humphrey Goodman: Every year, I'd hook a duck
DS Camille Bordey: No star?
DI Humphrey Goodman: Not once.
DS Camille Bordey: HOW is that AT ALL relevant?
DI Humphrey Goodman: Probability. See, the odds were stacked against me. As are the odds stacked against the murderer killing his intended victim.
