Revisional Differences

The first Taxi cabinets produced (L3 and German L1 revisions) feature a passenger named "Marilyn", whose appearance and mannerisms are based on Marilyn Monroe. It was only discovered midway through production that rights would need to be secured to use Marilyn's likeness, and Williams instead opted to alter the character's name and visuals for the remainder of the game's production run. Marilyn's name was changed to "Lola", and her blonde hair was made brunette for the cabinet's backglass and playfield art.

This change extends to the internal ROM, where all instances of "MARILYN" were changed to "LOLA".
