      • Paddy (Jackie Wright): Geez. This book's a switch.
        Ernie Potts (Benny): Why, what's that?
        Paddy: This "Happy Hooker." There's nothing about fishing at all in it.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Thames repeated this episode on October 28, 1975.

      • This show was taped on October 18, 1974, prior to the making of Show 22. This was only one of three instances in the show's history (the others being with Shows 2 and 3, and Shows 52 and 53) whereby the production order and airing order were the reverse of one another.

      • Anna Dawson made her first Benny Hill Show appearance in this episode. She would go on to be a series regular in the mid-to-late 1980's, starting with Show 51.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Order of the Garter

        When Fred Scuttle is talking to Henry McGee, he says (among other things), "Honi soit qui mal y pense", which is the motto of the Order of the Garter, the highest knighthood of honor in the United Kingdom.
