: How did Eddie Anderson ever come up with the name Rochester?
Eddie Anderson didn't...that's an Ed Beloin-Bill Morrow invention. I think it's almost surreal that Anderson had a couple appearances on the show in bit parts (like the train porter), but then appears as Jack's valet Rochester, working in his dressing room on a movie stage. The exchange is not completely unlike those they'd do for the next 30 years.
