 1.Columbo tells Patrick, “We’d better get started.” We’d better is a contraction of “We had better”.

We use had better to refer to the present or the future, to talk about actions we think people should do or which are desirable in a specific situation. The verb form is always had, not have. We normally shorten it to ’d better in informal situations. It is followed by the infinitive without to:

It’s five o’clock. I’d better go now before the traffic gets too bad.

2. Clifford says, “Let’s get this show on the road.” This expression means to start doing something that you have planned, especially like a trip.

When Columbo and Clifford’s lawyer meet, they say, “How do you do?” This is a very formal way of saying, “It’s nice to meet you,” and is not actually a question. This expression is not commonly used nowadays.
