Re: What was the Tricon company?

My thinking is, the Tricon lady was not interested in engaging in conversation. She may or may not have know Lewis Lacey, but even if she did, I don't think she would have wanted to discuss it.

The Tricon lady says, "Sir, the Tricon Delta 214
is a total spectrum retrieval system. You'll find all the information you need right there."

That about sums it up to me. I took that to mean, "look, dude, whatever you want to know is on the printout. I really don't have the time nor the inclination to let myself be bothered by you."
100% perfect analysis. Sorry to say but that woman was a biotch. Needs customer svc training bad.

Re: What was the Tricon company?

I found it fun that columbo, at least in the italian version, after seeing how long time the machine is taking to write down all useful information about Lacey in the paper, asks her something along the lines of "But who's Lacey, the president?"
