"For the record, he was also the first TV Nero Wolfe."

I seem to remember a running gag in the William Conrad Nero Wolfe. Whenever the cop he regularly sparred with stood up out of the chair in Wolfe's study, he would rise very gracefully without using the arms of the chair. This would infuriate Wolfe, leaving him ranting to Archie after the cop had left, something like, "He does that just to make me mad!"

Perhaps a connection between Dick's two comments?
