* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The operator in the telephone sketch. When Costello asks for "Alexander 4444", she says that the line is busy, in which Costello questions when every other person in his apartment is able to call without any problems. Either [[{{Jerkass}} the operator wanted to]] [[kickTheDog toy with Costello]], or that Field's Employment Agency was closed at that time, ''or'' that [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic she didn't want to waste her time with a guy like him]].

** In the first skit of the "Who's On First" show, Abbott dismisses Costello's girl-chasing ways by asking "Where do you think UsefulNotes/BenjaminFranklin would be if he thought of girls all the time?". Considering what we [[KavorkaMan now]] [[ReallyGetsAround know]] about Franklin's personal life, that question is pretty much moot.
