  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Eddie (arriving at the ski resort of Val d'Isère): Oh, Val d'Isère, Val d'Isère... Uh... Who was Val d'Isère, Pats?
      Patsy: Val, Val... Valérie d'Isère, darling. French film star.

    • Saffy: I don't want to be seen as some sex object.
      Paolo: I don't think of you as a sex object.
      Saffy (disappointed): Don't you? Are you sure?
      Paolo: It's never crossed my mind.
      Saffy: Well that's good. Because my sexuality is mine to give, not yours to take. Anyway that's not the point. You see women as either whores…
      Paolo: …or goddesses.
      Saffy: As mistresses or jezebels.
      Paolo: Or brides and mothers.
      Saffy: And you just want control, and we just bare the burden of the passive deadsun.
      Paolo: Saffy... will you marry me?
      Saffy (gasps): Yes!

    • Eddie: Sweetheart, have you seen my eh, my vibratie thing?
      Gran: By your bed dear.
      Eddie: No, my bleeper..

    • Patsy: It's been a terrific year for the Trans-seasonal Trousers!

    • Eddie: Patsy's been a bit low recently.
      Saffron: Low? She'd get vertigo in a sewer.

    • Saffron: (To Patsy) You're passed it. Sleeping with you must be a kin to necrophilia.

  • NOTES (4)

    • In this episode Patsy Stone makes a reference to "when [she] was a Bond Girl"; coincidentally Joanna Lumley, the actress who portrays this character, also played a James Bond girl in the 1969 movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service."

    • This two-part show was meant to be the last and final AbFab shows to be made, until 2000 when the decision was made out of nowhere to make a 4th season.

    • The Marianne Faithfull version of the song "Wheels on Fire" was available on the original Region 1 VHS tape, however, it was replaced with a musical version (sans vocals) on the region 1 DVD.

    • A new version of the theme song, "Wheels on Fire," appears in this episode. Other music includes (but is not excluded to): "Today's My Day" by Marcella Detroit, "We've Gotta Get Out of This Place" by Marianne Faithful; "Good Morning Starshine" from the broadway musical "Hair," and Lulu's "The Boat That I Row," "Let's Pretend," and "Love Loves to Love Love."

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Saffy: You look like a sad reject from Ready, Steady, Go!
      Ready, Steady, Go! was a hit show on the ITV network that featured several musical performers during the early sixties.
