-->'''Creator/DavidMitchell''': What a weird, unsettling thing to discover that would be. In the context of the credit crunch and everything, suddenly to discover that Rodney Bewes was immortal... I mean, can you imagine on the news them going [serious voice] "And today it emerged that actor Rodney Bewes has been alive for as long as time"?

Sandi asks for one last flaw, provided by Susan Calman:

* At the end of "Origins and Openings" begins with the panel expressing shock that Josh Widdicombe has never seen ''Movie/TheSoundOfMusic'', and Susan sings the chorus to ''Sixteen Going On Seventeen'' only for Sandi to stop her:
-->Yeah, it's like that, but with a tune.

** 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.

* Stephen attempting to provoke David Mitchell with a double bluff in the Series G episode "Geometry." David stayed calm. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prEXdN0fBZo Johnny Vegas, on the other hand...]]
-->'''Johnny''': ''[upon hearing that the columns on the Parthenon look straight because they are]'' [[RantInducingSlight That's not a question!]] "Why does this man look thin? Because he is." ... This is why I struggled in school! "If a train travels at 40 miles an hour and leaves at 9 o'clock and arrives in Glasgow at 12 o'clock, how did it get there?" And you're going, "'Cause it did!"... ''[holds up his notebook with a squiggly line drawn on it]'' "Why does that look straight?" "Because it's not!" That could have been a question. ''[draws a straight line]'' "Why does that look straight? Because it IS!" ''[breaks down sobbing]''

* "Odorous and Odious" has an appearance by a perfume based on every recognisable scent in [[TheBible the Book of Revelations]], supposedly as the fragrance of the Apocalypse. Nish Kumar suffers a coughing fit the moment he gets a whiff.
