      • The scene where Nelson and Wendy knock a man out with a bag of grain in order to board a boat which only allows two occupants is a reference to the classic "fox, chicken and grain" puzzle, where a man has purchased a fox, a chicken and a bag of grain, and must cross a river using a boat that can only carry himself and one of his purchases at a time.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Destiny: Oh my god, it's Wednesday! OMG, it's Wednesday! Don't just stand there, you stupid bastard! (grabs Nelson by the throat) Do you know what Wednesday means?!
        Nelson: (choking) "Nigel Slater's Simple Suppers"?
        Destiny: Worse!

      • Dog Trainer: Play dead.
        Dogs: Hello. I'm Richard Whitely.

      • Marion: It is Ruth. She is wanting me to have little snip downstairs, so I thought "why not?"
        Roland: Why not?! It's not like getting a haircut! They won't just grow back!
        Marion: I knew that! (to himself) I didn't know that...

      • Destiny: (about the "Strictly Dog Dancing" contestants) Look at these losers! Seriously, most people have to fly a plane into a building before they're surrounded by this many virgins!

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Kali is named after the Hindu goddess "Kali", who is often depicted as a figure of annihilation.

      • When Nelson tells Marion what the group have been up to, the following flashbacks are parodies of scenes from Only Fools and Horses: The wine bar scene from "Second Time Around", the chandelier scene from "A Touch of Glass", and Rodney finding Uncle Albert dead, from "If They Could See Us Now".

      • "Strictly Dog Dancing" is a parody of the TV show Strictly Come Dancing.
