    • QUOTES (3)

      • Eddie: Family? Family?! God I hope you haven't invited that bloody, selfish, twofaced, chicken, pigdog man have you?
        Saffy: You could just say Dad!

      • Eddie: Hello death, hello oblivion.

      • Eddie: NO! No, no, no DARLING! I will not have a surprise. I will not have a surprise party. If it's going to be a surprise, I want to know about it alright! Because I want to decide when I'm going to come and what I'm going to wear if I do come.

    • NOTES (2)

      • In this episode, we learn that Edina is 40. Which means that she was born in 1952. This also shows that Saunders decided to make the character older, since she was only born in 1958.

      • At the end of the show, Patsy and Edina sing on the karaoke machine "Wheels on Fire", the show's theme song.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Patsy: I connnnnnnnnnttt get nu..... satisffffacccction!
        Some of the songs that Eddy and Patsy try to sing at the end of the show (aside from the theme song) include "I Got You Babe" from Sonny & Cher, and "Satisfaction" from The Rolling Stones.
