In this episode Geraldine's name is given as Geraldine Julie Andrews Dick Van Dyke Supercalifragilistic-expialidocious Chim Chim Cher-ee Granger. But in the episode Spring she says her name is Boadicea Geraldine Granger.
Geraldine explained that Margaret Thatcher got booted out as British Prime Minister by John Major. Actually John Major did not initiate any attempt to remove her from office, Thatcher was forced to resign as she did not win enough votes over challenger Michael Heseltine needed for an upright victory under Conservative Party rules.
John Major, who was actually Thatcher's endorsed successor, was then elected to the leadership and thus the Prime Ministership beating Heseltine.
Geraldine turns 40 in this episode.
It is revealed Alice had 9 more children after baby Geraldine.
