American Beauty - 555-WHAT?
If you look at Jane's phone book, you can see that Lester's work number is 555-0195. This is the same phone number displayed on her mother's real estate sign as *her* work number.

Unrelated, but I just LOVE that scene in The Simpsons where they have a criminal on the phone and they're trying to trace the number. He hangs up and Chief Wiggum says: "Did you get it boys?" When the number is read back it's "555-1 . . . Naw, that's gotta be fake!" and they throw it out.

In Jane's book, the numbers are: Mom at work 312 555-0281 mom's cel 555-0859 Dad work 312 555-1(either an 8 or 3, hard to tell)51 NOT 555-0195, not even close. You can check this if your DVD player has the zoom feature BTW here is the time code: Title:1 Chapter:5 hr:0 m:22 s:29

Whether this is true or not I don't actually know, BUT, if it is true it just shows how distant Jane is from her parents, that is...she doesn't even know the real number of her Dad's work. The movie director may have done this on purpose. My advice...look at the context of the mistake and you may find it's not a mistake at all!

Its OK. Lester's number that he gives at work just before his boss calls him in to talk to him near the beginning is 555-0199.

I'm prolly wrong here, but I thought that was the number that Lester gave that person on the phone for him to call Lester back at work.
