I do love Rex Stout and his Archie Goodwin! :D 

"I hadn't go much from it, because I was in no condition to worry about collating evidence, on account of my mind being taken up wih the problem of getting Nero Wolfe undressed. At home, of course, he did it himself, and equally of  course I wasn't under contract as a valet  - being merely secretary, bodyguard, office manager, assistant detective, and goat - but the fact remained that in two hours it would be midnight, and there he was with his pants on, and someone was going to have to figure out a way of getting them off without upsetting the train. No that he was clumsy, but he had practically no practice at balancing himself while on a moving vehicle, and to pull pants from under him as he lay was out of he question, since he weighed something between 250 and a ton."

Archie Goodwin is just so much fun! That's what he says in the 'Red Box':

'Fundamentally I am a direct type, and that's why I can never be a really fine detective. Although I keep it down as much as I can, so it won't interfere with my work, I always have an inclination in a case of murder to march up to all the possible suspects, one after another, and look them in the eye and ask them, 'Did you put that poison in the aspirin bottle?' and just keep that up until one of them  says, 'Yes'. As I say, I keep it down but have to fight it.

Isn't he cute? :D
