Scorpion Episode to Clue Fans in With a Real Phone Number to Call

Scorpion Real Phone Number

If there’s somethin’ strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call?

Team Scorpion!

The minds behind CBS’ freshman drama are making that possible, with a fun Easter egg in tonight’s episode (9/8c).

As the Scorpion team attempts to jog the memory of an injured former Secret Service agent, they uncover a phone number that viewers will actually be able to call — and whomever is on the other end may have some interesting intel to share.

“We really can’t stand when television shows and movies use 555 numbers,” executive producers Nick Santora and Nick Wootton said in a statement. “It just takes you out of the moment. So when our geniuses discover a phone number that reveals a lead in their case, we wanted to use the real thing. And it works! Plus, we added a little something for the fans.”

Is Scorpion‘s real phone number a genius idea? Will you give it a call?

  3. Kvivik says:

    since it will probably be long distance, no!

  4. Sarah says:

    “we added a little something for the fans.”And a whole lot of something for CBS revenues.

  5. Sam says:

    FOX did that with 24 some years back.

  6. Viv says:

    Didn´t PoI do this one time or am I misremembering?

  7. Tran says:

    SPOILER ALERT: David James Elliott is guest starring on tonight’s episode. He was great on JAG for so many years and great to see him back not only on TV but on CBS.

  10. Mary Ann says:

    Supernatural once had a real number that they used on the show. If you called it you got a recorded message from Sam and Dean.

  11. Amy says:

    Yes, I will call it!

  12. Oh YES :D

  13. sam says:

  14. Miguel says:

    I called it and all it said was “this is the number from scorpion” wow.

  15. Elyse says:

    I called, and I got a recording of Walter saying something to the effect of:

    “we’re busy, but we’re always looking for new recruits. See if you have what it takes to join our team by cracking this code:

    8479716984726982 8769 658269 8367798280737978”

      It says together we are scorpion.

      • amy324 says:

        Got it, too! Great fun. Love that they dissed the stupid 555 – which really does take you out of the moment. So doing this was kind of ironic, because I completely stopped watching the show to go solve the puzzle. LOL

    I just wanted to say than you to Nick Santora for Scorpion, along with Walter O’brien, this man is a genius. I didn’t watch a lot of tv until I retired and now that my husband died I love watching a few shows to pass the evening but would never miss an episode of Scorpion and Nick, get Walt & Paige together soon! Thank you.
