Colombo's first name.
As always, Colombo jumps on the suspect (Gene Barry) immediately, saying, "Sir, I notice you didn't call out to your wife when you came in". Colombo always knows who did it. . . so it's more of a 'howgetim' than a 'whodunit', and it's always truly entertaining. Peter Falk is perfect as the scruffy detective - - - AND- According to Trivial Pursuit, Colombo's first name is Phillip. Now I hear that the 'Phillip' name is a hoax! Well. . . no matter. Peter Falk may be knocking on 70 or so, but, so what?! He'll always be a gem whose acting skill will thrive in TV/Motion Picture cyberspace. His best pieces? Griffin and Phoenix, The Cheap Detective, Columbo, The Princess Bride, or The In-Laws, which is a top-ten funniest comedy of all time. If you haven't seen it- run to Netflix and order it ASAP. Even his bit part in "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. The man is a class act and deserves every dose of praise he gets.
