  • Quotes

    • Dean Learner: This week sees the launch of my new pay-per-view television channel dedicated to girl-on-girl pillow fighting. And you can order it by phoning this number on the bottom of your screen.
      (number appears: 08917-GRAPPLE)
      So, just give our call team your credit card details and join in the harmless fun. And for billing purposes, charges to your card will be marked as 'office equipment'.

    • Bot: It's too late for me Jack. My time is over. Do not weep for me, for I have known many wonderful things in my life as the ship's chief pleasure port. Why, you showed me the raining stars of Tramatricon 5; You showed me the twin moons of the Gantrax Helix, where we liberated the Houdramons from their vile slave masters; Restored the mighty Optrix. And you showed me that game with those majestic coloured orbs. What... what was the name of that game Jack?
      Jack: Snooker.

    • Sarah Dempster re-appears briefly as Martine. She takes part in a pillow fight, rather than the cat fight with Satu on a bouncy castle as previously promised by Dean.

    • This episode features Katie Breathwick. She was a member of the Cambridge Footlights, and a contemporary of Matthew Holness and Richard Ayoade as well as David Mitchell and Robert Webb.

    • This episode features Spencer Brown (who also appears in unrelated roles in two later episodes) as Dean's personal physician, Phil. However, although his voice is heard, his face is not seen in this episode.

  • Allusions

    • The character Glynn Nimron and his career have many features reminiscent of Star Trek. Similarities can be drawn between Nimron and Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy, and Nimron's voice is very similar to that of Nimoy's Star Trek co-star George Takei.
