Beetlejuice reference in Infinity War

In Beetlejuice, when Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis are in that waiting room for the dead, waiting to get help, they show the long wait when the secretary calls the number for the next appointment: number 54,000,601. In Infinity War, Dr. Strange looks at 14,000,605 possible futures. This is the same number with just the first and last digits swapped. It stuck out to me because both numbers are in the millions but have nothing going on in the thousands places (only happens to about 0.1% of big numbers). My guess is, someone wanted to put in that Beetlejuice number exactly, to signify "a lot" to the audience, but they worried about the number being to recognizable and too coincidental that they changed it slightly.
