    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • EDITORS' NOTE:
        The Opera game had all the characteristics of the Musical game, but because Clive called it Opera, I have listed it as 'Opera/Musical' in the summary.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Mike: (in Party Quirks)
        I've got two lips for you
        I'll go and kiss the loo
        Hand me a brush, I won't be in a rush
        I'll be back in a moment or two!

      • (in Opera)
        Josie: Is this the way to Turnham Green?
        John: This is the way to Turnham Green.
        Paul: It's no good asking me, I don't know a thing!

      • Jonathan: (in Every Other Line) Don't you dare, don't you dare, just don't you dare insult the name of Robin Hood! (looking at his book) It's all here.

      • (F&TS, Disney)
        Josie: You can be my real big human dinky-doo. Would you like that?
        Paul: Um...I'd rather have a good career in the civil service, but I'll...

      • Clive: 'Waste not, want not' is the motto of Channel Four; or do I mean 'taste not, watch not?'

    • NOTES (1)

      • HA!/CC reversed the end, putting Musical before Party Quirks. Also, Archie and John's Film and Theatre Styles was edited out.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Northern Line:
        A major part of Opera, the Northern Line is a part of the London Underground.

      • Douglas Bader:
        Before Party Quirks, Tony walks rather stiffly and says, 'I've never organized a come-as-Douglas Bader party.' Douglas Bader was a pilot with the Royal Air Force in World War II. He is regarded as a courageous war hero because he flew with two artificial legs, hence Tony's walk.
