Lt. in LAPD. Easily the best "detective" America has to offer. Characterized by:
1: A beat-up raincoat.
2: An aging Peugot.
3: A cigar (the cheap kind).
4: Follows a suspect around, irritating them until they slip up.
5: No apparent first name (actually, he does have one: Lt.)
6: A never-seen wife.

To call someone "Columbo" or "a Columbo" can either be taken as a compliment or a threat.

Columbo is in fact when you seem unintelligent but you actually are very smart. Your wife (even if you dont have one) is always talked about eventhough you never get to see her.
Dude! You're such a columbo. You knew that I was bullshitting you the whole time. Say hi to your wife for me.

US Police lt.

He was born in Italy.

His wife is probably very ugly, because we never saw her, but he speaks always about her.

He seems completely doped.
My wife would love to have your autograph.

Used to describe a final/minor step or issue in a computer/software repair that becomes in itself a major issue.

A 'columbo' is named for a the TV show detetective by the same name who was known for his phrase at the supposed end of his questions/investigation "oh yeah, one more thing" - and USUALLY that 'one more thing' is the 'kicker' as it were.
It took me six hours to fix it because I had a columbo.

That airbook setup had more columbos than I could count!

When a male pretends that he has blown his load (can be by spitting on partners back if in doggie style) then when said partner thinks sex acts are complete, the male says... "One more thing" and blows his load over his partner.
Samantha thought they were done for the night and turned the light off, but Nick gave her a Columbo in the dark.

To act in an assuming way in order to trick a person into admitting guilt.
No one knew that John took Sam's wallet until Tommy Columboed John.
