      • Lenny: "I managed to get to level 4 on Grand Theft Auto and there was a power cut."

        Reference to the popular role playing video game series Grand Theft Auto.

      • Lenny: "A lottery winner who blew his five hundred pound winnings became a burglar in order to get extra cash. He was caught when he was picked out of an identity parade by an enormous hand going It could be you!"

        A reference to the early National Lottery TV advertising campaign, which featured a huge hand appearing from the sky pointing at random newsagent customers.

        Allusions are made to Michael Jackson's not guilty verdict [link], a lottery winner that turned burglar after losing his winnings, A student being arrested for calling the police force 'gay'. Bob Geldof owing his old band millions of pounds in royalties [link] and Education Secretary Ruth Kelly wanting to introduce a longer school day [link].
