Unfortunately for Douvier, his first attempt at bombing Clouseau fails, and the subsequent attempt by Chinese martial artist 'Mr. Chong' (an uncredited appearance by the founder of [[American Kenpo]], [[Ed Parker]]) is thwarted when Clouseau successfully fights him off (believing him to be Clouseau's [[valet]] Cato ([[Burt Kwouk]]), who has orders to keep his employer alert with random attacks). Douvier tries again by posing as an informant to lure Clouseau into a trap, but the Chief Inspector's car and clothes are stolen by [[transvestite]] criminal Claude Russo ([[Sue Lloyd]]), who is unknowingly killed by Douvier's men instead. Subsequently, Douvier and the French public believe Clouseau is dead; as a result of this assumption, Clouseau's ex-boss, former Chief Inspector Charles Dreyfus ([[Herbert Lom]]), is restored to sanity and is released from the lunatic asylum to perform the investigation (despite having committed several major crimes and then seemingly disintegrated in the [[The Pink Panther Strikes Again|previous film]]).

In Russo's clothes and insisting on his true identity, Clouseau is taken to the asylum himself but escapes into Dreyfus' room, who faints from the shock of seeing Clouseau alive. Clouseau manages to disguise himself as Dreyfus and is driven home by François ([[André Maranne]]). At home, Clouseau finds Cato, who, despite having turned Clouseau's apartment into a Chinese-themed [[brothel]], is relieved to see that he survived and the two plan [[revenge]] on the sponsor of Clouseau's [[assassination]]. Meanwhile, Dreyfus is assigned to read a [[eulogy]] at Clouseau's funeral by the police chief's wife, on pain of his own discharge. At the cemetery, Clouseau attends the burial disguised as a priest and then surreptitiously reveals himself to Dreyfus, who recognizes him, faints, and falls into the grave. Clouseau escapes.

Meanwhile, due to his unfaithfulness, Douvier's wife threatens him with divorce. Needing her respectability, Douvier tells his secretary and paramour Simone LeGree ([[Dyan Cannon]]) that their relationship is over, to which Simone reacts angrily.
