  • Cigars.

    chemist guy is the same actor from "Fright Night". He is very weird and somewhat gay in this episode. But still, the episode is pretty good. Especially the last sequence in the lift with the cigar box. Very seventies feel to this one. Clothes, lights, disco, ect. My kind of stuff. Afros. My favorite part of the episode is when Columbo tosses the box of cigars down at the chemist gu and the chemist guy just stares unbelievingly up at Columbo. Then he begins to laugh insanely and hangs his medallion around Columbos neck. Priceless Columbo moment. Vanquished but admiring advesary.
