- Alternative Character Interpretation: 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 the operator wanted to toy with Costello, or that Field's Employment Agency was closed at that time, or that she didn't want to waste her time with a guy like him.
- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- In One Night in the Tropics, the main character's name is Stephen Harper.
- In the first skit of the "Who's On First" show, Abbott dismisses Costello's girl-chasing ways by asking "Where do you think Benjamin Franklin would be if he thought of girls all the time?". Considering what we now know about Franklin's personal life, that question is pretty much moot.
YMMV / Abbott and Costello
