Did You Know?
When in Jarvis (John Bowe
)' country house, Chris (Marshall Lancaster
) says, "It's just like Southfork", referencing the name of the ranch home of the Ewing family in US soap opera Dallas
(1978) (1978-1991). When entering the house later in the episode Chris says "It's like Scooby Doo", and Ray (Dean Andrews
) remarks "Ha ha ha you pesky kids", referring to the famous TV cartoon dog who first appeared in Hanna Barbera's Scooby Doo, Where Are You!
