The telephone number at Moe's Tavern is 764-8437, or SMITHERS. This was revealed in The Simpsons: Homer the Smithers (1996), when Mr. Burns tries to call Smithers, but does not know his phone number. Naturally, SMITHERS was his only guess.
What's that, a broken leg? Great!
Waylon Smithers was designed to be "Mister Burns' white sycophant," as it "would be a bad idea to have a black subservient character" putting up with the abuse that Burns doles out. (Quotes are from David Silverman, one of the show's main producers.) Ironically, Smithers is colored as an African-American in his first appearance The Simpsons: Homer's Odyssey, due to color stylist Gyorgyi Peluce's misinterpretation of the new character. The mistake was quickly caught and corrected starting with the immediate next episode The Simpsons: There's No Disgrace Like Home.
The annual Halloween specials are generally the only Simpsons shows to actually display the episode title on screen. The opening credits for these specials are usually altered or completely substituted with something else in keeping with the theme.
