      • Sid: What did Mack the Knife say? "We've never had it so good," he said.

        Sid refers to Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, who assured the British in 1957 that their country was doing well after the hardships of the post-war era. Mack the Knife is of course a character from The Threepenny Opera.
