  • Trivia

    • The studio scene on the balcony when the satellite dish is seen for the first time shows a small window in the kitchen wall, yet in "Fatal Extraction", when the riot starts due to Del's drunken singing, the outside scene shows the block of flats used for Nelson Mandela House clearly is built in a way that the door is on the side of the kitchen and not from the lounge.

  • Quotes

    • (Del breaks the news to Uncle Albert that he and Raquel are an item)
      Uncle Albert: You mean she slept with you, then?
      Del: Yes, all right, she did. And listen, don't go and say nothing to her about it.
      Uncle Albert: What? Don't she know?

    • (The Trotters have strong genes)
      Uncle Albert: My father lived until he was eighty-one.
      Del: Eighty-one? You see, it's a good age, isn't it?
      Uncle Albert: It weren't for him. He died.

    • Raquel: A doctor told you to stay off fried food.
      Del: Yes, I know. And a doctor told Snow White to eat more fruit and we all know what happened to that poor, old cow.

  • Notes

    • The idea for the script was based on John Sullivan's holiday to Portugal, and discovering that he wasn't booked on the plane.
