In the game of craps the slang term 'Little Phoebe' refers to a roll of 5 on the dice.

Unfortunately, the term doesn't appear in the dozens of sites which come up in a search of 'crap terms.' The statement I found uses the word 'slang' which may be the problem. Perhaps it's not official, don't know personally. Here's a list that does include 'Phoebe' among other terms that are not on standard lists.
