    • TRIVIA (3)

      • It is revealed that Linda is 39 years old in this episode.

      • Tom's parents reveal a secret to him: They are swingers!

      • Tom performs 'Help me I'm down a hole" – from the musical version of 'Silence Of The Lambs' he once starred in. Listen to the lyrics though... "Help me I'm down a hole, so far away from home, at the end of my tunnel I see some light, I'm someone's dinner tonight." Tom appears to be playing a character who, in the original film is held prisoner in a deep well in the cellar of a murderer's house. However it's not the murderer that eats people, he just kills them! It's Hannibal Lector who eats people. So why would he be someone's dinner?!
