    • The episode's airing coincided with Skins premiere parties around the country to celebrate the return of the new season.

    • The scene where Maxxie is chased by the boys from his estate is unrealistic as it was unlikely that they would be lying in wait for him when Maxxie hadn't intended to leave the party and go outside by himself.

    • This is the first episode in which we encounter Maxxie's parents, despite the fact that Maxxie has an episode in Season 1 named after him and we've seen the family of every other member of the Skins gang.

    • As each of the main characters had an episode named for them in Season 1, the opening episode of Season 2 becomes the first time repetition occurs in the titles. There is also a full circle effect as Tony, after whom the premiere episode was named, also has a place in the opening episode of the second series.

    • The episode focuses on characters Tony and Maxxie, as suggested by the episode title.

    • This is the second episode to include two character names in the title.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Maxxie's Dad: You didn't turn out like the f***ing asbo army out there.

      An ASBO is an 'Anti-Social behaviour Order', which are commonly associated with youths on estates.

    • The episode title "Tony and Maxxie" is an allusion to the first episode of the first season, "Tony". As the gang's leader, Tony has each season opener named for him.
