Did You Know?

Trivia

The original title of this episode was "BEnsonhurst 3-7741". But after filming, it was discovered that that was an actual working number. To avoid the real-life users of the number from being called by viewers, the number was changed to BEnsonhurst 0-7741. The cast had to re-dub every mention of the digit "three" with "zero" and the title was changed. See more »

Goofs

The Kramdens' new telephone number is BEnsonhurst 0-7741. But whenever a character says the digit "zero" it is clearly dubbed in and they are actually saying "three". See more »

Quotes

[Alice sees Ralph and Norton in the room, preventing her from using the phone; she leaves the room]
Ed Norton: [to Ralph] What was that?
Ralph: I'll tell you what that is: she wanted to find out if I'm still here. She can't wait to get on that phone and start gabbing with everybody.
Ed Norton: Of course she won't get on the phone. Don't be silly. She's gonna run up a big bill when you go away or something?
