      • Vince: Stupid, useless casting directors! Wouldn't know good acting if it BLEEPed 'em!
        Marion: Hello, Vince.
        Vince: Did you just call me a BLEEP?

      • Nelson: Now then, I will bloody kick myself if I don't ask: Why did the chicken cross the road?

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • The scene at the end of the episode parodies 'Tales of the Unexpected' - when it is revealed the guide dog (who is now blind) has been casted into a donation box, with the music playing being the shows title music

      • Kali: Oh, by the way: congratulations!
        Marion: For what?
        Kali: For winning the 2003 Academy Award for Best Director, Mr. Polanski!

        Kali likens Marion to Roman Polanski, a Polish film director who was arrested for the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl in 1977.
