Episode Notes
This was June Whitfield's favourite episode of the season.

When Eddie tosses the yogurt at the sink it hits the camera lense. You can see the aftermath on the outtakes section on the Season 4 DVD.

This episode was mean to be 3th but changes in the schedule put this episode as 4th.



Episode Quotes
Patsy: Oh Eddie, you look fine. I mean you dress like...
Eddy: A fat billboard, I know.
Saffy: Is that the reason you wear labels, so the designer takes the blame?
Eddy: Clunk clink clunk, didn't take a genius to figure that one out darling. DKNY bosoms, not mine!

Eddy: 'Cos this isn't a lovely lovely fun, jumpy, lovely lovely day. This is horrible, painful, funless grind.
Saffy: Welcome to my world.



Episode Goofs
Edina tells Katy Grin that Patsy hasn't eaten since 1974, however in the Morocco episode from series two Patsy tells Edina she hasn't eaten since 1972.

A number of objects move around the kitchen table when Saffy is talking to Taylor.



Cultural References
Eddy: Liam & Noel.

A quick and funny reference to the lead singers/brothers of the band Oasis who used to fight on stage frequently.
