Trivia

Each of "Taxi"'s five passengers is based on popular characters, right? So who is "Lola" then?

The first released versions of Taxi contained five passengers: Gorbie (Mikhail Gorbachev), Drac (Count Dracula), Santa Claus, Pinbot (from the Williams table of the same name), and Marilyn (as in Marilyn Monroe). This resulted in a short legal squabble between Williams and Monroe's estate, resulting in Ms. Monroe's change into the redheaded "Lola". The "Lola" version of the table is the more common of the two, while supposedly the "Marilyn" versions ended up being sold outside of the US.
