Did You Know?


The secret word for the episode is "Door," but Pee-Wee is the only one who screams when the salesman says,"I'm going door-to-door to make you this incredible offer..." and only does it out of annoyance from the salesman. See more »


With the secret word being "door" for this show, Pee Wee purposely avoids saying "door" when the doorbell rings. However, after he answers the bell to see who is there in the next scene, nobody yells (twice) when the traveling salesman says he was going "door to door" to make an incredible offer. See more »


Randy: Hi-ya, Pee Wee. Hi-ya, PA-terri.
Pee-wee Herman: That's pronounced "terri." The "p" is silent.
Randy: [rudely] Oh. Okay, Ee Wee.
