Default Three's Company now, how many stories couldnt be done because of cell phones?

That's the question.

If this show was on today, what storylines couldnt really be told or easily solved because people now have mobile phones. The whole stuck in an elevator story with the pregnant woman really couldnt be done now because people could call home. Much like Archie Bunker being stuck in the cellar. yes, he could have forgotten his phone but we are in 2018 where this probably didnt happen. But even the "stuck in the cellar" would be plausable. Not so much about the elevator because multiple people would have phones.

Most of the Threes Company storylines consists of "misunderstandings" of some sort, which is exaserbated by the lack of communication. Which stories just couldnt be done today because of that.

I was never a huge fan of the show. To me Janet was the best looking woman on the show (like dark haired, brown eyed ladies), but if this show was on in 2018 instead of 1978 a lot of stories couldnt be done. So tell us which ones couldnt be done without several people who happen to not have their phones with them. Discuss.
