  • Trivia

    • The three band names debated by Jeremy and Super Hans are "The Hair Blair Bunch," "Spunk Bubble," and "Momma's Kumquat."

  • Quotes

    • Mark: Thanks Jeremy, you tit.

    • Mark: Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule - makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

    • Jeremy: You're pissing on my bonfire!
      Mark: There is no bonfire!
      Jeremy: That's because you keep pissing on it!

    • Mark: How's your day going thus far? Did you have a nice shower or bath?
      Sophie: Why, do I smell?
      Mark: God, no, you don't smell. I mean, you smell nice. Not that I've smelt you.

    • Jeremy: Super Hans says he's come up with a bass loop for our new track that is so good, that when he tried turning it off... he literally couldn't... he actually physically couldn't do it.

    • Mark: (Thinking) She's ignoring me. Of course she's ignoring me. I sent her a swastika.

  • Notes

    • Instead of the usual end credit music, "Somethin' Stupid" by Carson and Gaile plays at the end of the episode.

  • Allusions

    • Somethin' Stupid
      Jeremy: Everyone needs their "Somethin' Stupid."
      He is referring to the song, "Somethin' Stupid" by Carson and Gaile. That very song plays during the end credits of the episode, and Mark sings part of it on the phone when he calls Sophie.
