When Alice has a telephone installed, Ralph feels threatened both by her newfound freedom and the prospect of another bill to pay.
Did You Know?
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
Right after the new phone is installed, Alice calls Trixie to tell her about it. Immediately after, Ralph comes home and Norton calls from upstairs to congratulate him. But Alice did not give Trixie the phone number, so there was no way Norton could have known it. See more

What was that?
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.
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?
