  • Allusions

    • Jeremy Clarkson: They're for cruising around Juan Les Pins in your carefully designed topless swimsuit. But this you could take this to St. Moritz. Drink Napoleon brandy without getting your lips wet.

      This line (in bold) comes from the song 'Where do you go to my lovely' by Peter Sarstedt. The reference to drinking Napoleon brandy without getting your lips wet also comes from the song, but is not a verbatim quote. Juan Les Pins, a town in south east France, is also mentioned in the song.

      The song was released in 1969 and spent four weeks at No. 1 in the U.K. Top 40.
