** Danny has a habit of doing this even on the job, as he enjoys getting things from the shop like Cornettos, checking out the DVDs at Somerfield, and when we first see him he's enjoying a few pints in the pub. He tries to get Angel to do this too by taking him to the pub after they confiscate Webley's haul, where they both consume a few pints. And then when they get back to Danny's place, Danny gets them both to watch ''Film/PointBreak1991'' and ''Film/BadBoysII''.

** The Andies joke that if they need to interview a victim's clients, they may as well talk to everyone in the village, since he did business with everyone.

Aaronson; Angel does a DoubleTake.
