"Columbo" An Exercise in Fatality (TV Episode 1974) Poster

(TV Series)


Robert Conrad: Milo Janus


  • Milo : What the hell gives you the right, Columbo?

    Columbo : This, sir. This is a warrant. This gives me the right.

  • Jessica Conroy : [after Milo leans in to kiss her... and she enjoys it]  You know, there's one thing that bothers me about you.

    Milo : What's that?

    Jessica Conroy : You're a little unsure of yourself.

    Milo : I'm very unsure. But I'm encouraged by your response.


  • Milo : Buddy is as honest as I am.

    [vouching for employee with a criminal record of fraud attempting to cover up the murder he committed] 

  • Columbo : I stopped by your place. Your housekeeper told me you were down here swimming.

    Milo : Twenty minutes a day. You ought to try it, Columbo.

    Columbo : No, I'm afraid not, sir. I can't swim. I don't even like a deep tub.

  • Milo : You know something, Columbo? You're a devious man.

    Columbo : That's what they tell me.

  • Milo : My markup is very small. But I have to maintain quality. That's what gives me control.

  • Milo : He won't find anything, and in eight months I'm going to be in my villa overlooking the Adriatic with two million in Swiss francs to keep me warm.

  • Milo : [Ruth, angry that Milo has made a pass at her, starts to leave the restaurant]  Where you going?

    Ruth Stafford : Out!

    [She throws a glass of wine in Milo's face] 

  • Milo : Every cent I make I reinvest into the company. When I make money, you make money.
