    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Goof: The Invisible Man is a homicidal maniac from a novel by HG Wells, and not one of "the greatest superheroes our world has ever known." It is possible that they were thinking of Invisible Kid/Lyle Norg, a relatively obscure character in the Legion of Superheroes.

      • Various names that were mentioned in the episode:

        Boadicea Geraldine Granger-- her full name
        David Francis Matthew Horton--his full name
        Geraldine Wendy Nana Peter Pan Tinkerbell Tiger Lily Captain Hook Crocodile Horton--Alice and Hugo's rejected name for Baby Geraldine
        Geraldine Lana Twankey Ainsley Harriet Horton-- Baby Geraldine's name at her christening

      • In this episode David admits he is worth £5,000,000.

      • Geraldine's Reasons Why She Couldn't Marry David:
        a)He's a Tory.
        b)He's mean.
        c)He's too old-fashioned.

      • Gifts to Baby Geraldine:
        Frank- 30 years' worth of handwritten Council minutes
        Owen- a baby spoon enscribed 'To Gerald'(the spoon was too short for Geraldine)
        Jim- unknown; after Hugo says, gratefully, "Aw, you shouldn't have", Jim takes the present out of Hugo's hands and puts it back in his jacket.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Geraldine: (changing baby Geraldine's nappy) What have you been eating? It's like Willy Wonkas chocolate factory down there.

      • Gerry: So, Superman's feeling a bit bored, because Spiderman and Batman are on a scuba diving course.
        Alice: Oh, shame!
        Gerry: Yeah, So he hasn't got anyone to play with. So he's flying around and suddenly, he sees Wonder Woman naked, spread eagle, on the top of a tall building.
        Alice: Ooh, she'll catch cold!
        Gerry: No, no.. it's summer.
        Alice: Well, thank goodness for that!
        Gerry: Yeah, yeah. So, he's always fancied Wonder Woman, so he thinks "Now's my chance!" and he swoops down, faster than a speeding bullet, does the business, then he flies off again. Moment later, Wonder Woman says "What was that?" and the Invisible Man climbs off her and says, "I don't know, but it hurt A LOT!" (Geraldine laughs, I know it's rude, but it's very funny.
        Alice: I don't get it.
        Gerry: No, I didn't expect that you would.
        Alice: Well, you seem to be suggesting that Superman committed homosexual rape upon the Invisible Man. Well, I just don't find that funny.
        Gerry: Right.
        Alice: In fact, you're besmirching the reputation of two of the finest superheros this world has ever known. Although, I've never actually met them. Well, I might have met the invisible man, I wouldn't know. He's invisible. But I have heard, that they are really nice guys. And frankly, I think you should be ashamed of yourself. Goodbye Vicar... (Alice gets up and walks out)

      • Frank: I'm Frank Pickle, I'm the baby's Godgrandparent.
        Bishop: A Godgrandparent, how unusual.
        Frank: Not as unusual as the photograph of Boyzone I keep in my wallet.

      • Geraldine:(to Alice and Hugo) So, can anyone tell me why you're having her baptized on Sunday?
        Alice: You're busy on Saturday.

      • Alice: (about breastfeeding) It was a bit tricky at first, but then the health center said I didn't have to eat grass like the cows do.

      • David: That's the first time you've ever agreed with me!
        Geraldine: Really?
        Jim: No no- what about the proposal to twin the village of Dibley to the Red Light district of Hamburg?
        Geraldine: That was your proposal, wasn't it, Jim?
