Episode Notes
Jennifer Saunders had been persuaded to write another series after originally deciding that the show wouldn't return.

This episode gives a prelude to the play Saffy writes in a future episode.

The majority of the home has been redone.

Episode Quotes
Gran: You used to have one of these when you were a girl.
Eddy: Yeah, but I was never allowed on it.
Gran: You were too big for it. You wobbled.
Eddie: The scooter wobbles!

Katy Grin: Hi, I'm Katy Grin! These are carpets! Come down now to Carpet Madness! It's carpets, it's madness, Carpet Madness! Carpet Madness now!!! Just carpets! It's madness, madness now! (Patsy's lips put over Katy's face) Sale starts Friday.

Episode Goofs
Lumley almost cracks up laughing at Saunders after she takes off her neckbrace. You can see her parallox wear off for a brief second when she throws the brace on the table.

The shot of Bubble walking was used twice. Once on the web-cam, then again when Eddie and Patsy arrive at the office.

Cultural References
Visual: On the back of Eddy's shirt there is a Chinese character.

The character is '?' (or '?' in simplified Chinese; pronounced 'lè'), which – in this case – means 'happy'.

Gran: (While on the computer) I'm a silver surfer!

A funny reference to Marvel Comics famous character, The Silver Surfer.
