* When (((Stephen Fry))) announced the Swedish version, he said that he knew enough Swedish to "order from a hotel room". Johan Wester, the Swedish host, asked him to say something to the Swedish fans. He proceeded to say: "Ursäkta, den get ni sände till mitt rum har spruckit, och ni glömde vispgrädden. Gräsklippare!"[[note]]Sorry, but the goat you sent to my room has ruptured, and you forgot the whipped cream. Lawnmower![[/note]]

** In the XL version of the episode, Rob Brydon appears to place himself in the camp that finds Johnny's contributions of limited value, leading to a number of hilarious confrontations with Stephen when he appears less interested in Rob's factual contributions than Johnny's bizarre outbursts. This culminates in the discussion following a question about how many cricket pitches could fit into the state of Kansas, when Rob spins from the fact that the capital of Kansas is Topeka to the fact that ElvisPresley was born in the similar-sounding Tupelo, and proceeds to recite a condensed Presley biography. David Mitchell's expression of mounting confusion at how this is relevant to the discussion at hand is priceless.
