Wayne, Sharon's boyfriend in this episode, is a spoof on Shane Warne. As Sharon mentions in this episode, he is an imitator of the cricketer, yet not a very good one. Some mistakes in note include, aversion to texting, and not being very good at cricket. One thing he has in common with the real Warney, is that they both have a "wandering eye", as is demonstrated at the end.
When Kath is talking on the phone to people in her Indonesian class, she says, "Baik-baik saja, tidak, business class" In Indonesian 'baik-baik saja' means 'just good' and 'tidak' means 'no'.
This episode uses the new opening theme song, used originally in Da Kath & Kim Code.
Epponie has been taken off the opening credits. This is most likely because the baby would played Epponie has grown up within the last 3 years.
Kath has taken up Indonesian classes.
Kath: What are you reading there, Kim?
Kim: The Da Vinci Code, I'm reading it to Epponnee as a bedtime story.
Kath: Oh, yes, I'm reading that, but I'm reading the abridged version. It's called the Eensie-Weensie Da Vinci Code.
Kim: Mum, why is there barely any water in here?
Kath: Well it's a drought Kim! Phase 2 at the moment!
Kim: Oh, just fill it up -- I would!
Kath: No Kim! The farmers! [quietly] Actually Kim, Kel did fill it up the other day but bozzo next door dobbed us in.
Kim: So what are we sitting in now?
Kath: This is grey water, it's washing up water.
Kim: [takes sponge out of water and throws it on ground] Ewwww! Mum!
Kath: Well Kim, that's what we're reduced to, thanks to -- [neighbour sticky-beaks] Oh yes! Having a good butcher's, are we? No, don't try and hide! We can see you!
Kim: We can see you!
In this episode, every time Sharon talks about her boyfriend, Mark, she always points to her pash-rash.
The episode begins with everyone celebrating New Year's Eve, but in Kel's toast he says that he and Kath have been married for one month. Their wedding was on September 18th, so one month later should actually be around October 18th, not New Year's Eve.
The main characters do their shopping at Fountain Gate Shopping Center, however in the first series all shopping scenes were filmed at Southland Shopping Center. In the second series the real Fountain Gate Shopping Center was used. Scenes were shot at both locations for the third series.
This is the first time that Glenn Robbins (Kel) and Peter Rowsthorn (Brett) appear in a scene together, although they have no lines with each other.
Kath & Kim are supposed to live in the suburbs, however during 'Wine Time' the water can clearly be seen. Thus showing that they are not truly in the suburbs.
