    This was another highly amusing episode of FM. It included a 'live' performance by the Wombats and a cameo by Toyah Willcox. Dom is made to give up alcohol by Jane who in return has to give up smoking. Lots of funny scenes follow where Dom has to go to Addiction Support but ends up being addicted to Addiction Support! Jane can't give up nicotine so resorts to nicotine patches. There was a hilarious moment when Dom tries to catch her smoking in the ladies toilets and bursts through the cubicle door with a fire extinguisher only to find it's the wrong person in there. So funny!moreless

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Jane: All right, easy there, Glenn Close. What did I say about being desperate?

      Jane is alluding to the 1987 film Fatal Attraction where a married man's one night stand comes back to haunt him when his lover, played by Glenn Close, begins to stalk him and his family.

    • Lindsay: I can't help it. When I see a pretty girl, I turn into Gareth Gates.

      Gareth Gates was the runner up in the 2002 Pop Idol show and is well known for his stammering problems, which he overcomes by singing.

    • Jane: How are you going to go out with her if she thinks you've got a girlfriend? You tw't, it's like talking to Rainman.

      Rainman is the 1988 film starring Dustin Hoffman as Raymond Babbitt, a man who has autism.

    • Lindsay: Hey there, Zammo. Are you all right?

      Zammo, played by Lee MacDonald, was a character in the long-running BBC show for children, Grange Hill (1978-2008 ). His story line about addiction was one of the most famous in the entire show.

    • Dom: It doesn't mean I can't go a day without watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

      This line from Dom alludes to the fact that the 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a regular feature in the Christmas TV schedules in the UK.
