A dying man’s request to call a taxicab is correctly divined by Griswold to mean dial a telephone number that “spells” the word.
Eh. On the one hand, it does seem an incredible coincidence that the telephone number 829-4222 should actually be of significance. On the other hand, one assumes that there is a certain (albeit small) percentage of phone numbers that can be used to spell interesting seven-letter words. Still, it’s a less than impressive effort.
