* Mike's new room has Music/BuddyHolly in it, trapped in the ceiling by his parachute. Mike plans to get rich off of the songs Holly written based off his new insect diet, only for Holly's parachute to break, causing Holly to plummet to the floor. Mike, unfazed, grabs his guitar, thinking he can make a few bucks off of it.

* After Rick claims to have a perforated ear drum, Mike claims to have flat feet, and Vyvyan claims to be pregnant, Neil is nominated to join the Army. He is dressed in one of Mike's suits (which is several sizes too small) and has his hair cut (on one side only - made additionally funny because it's exactly the haircut that Phil Oakey from The Human League sported at the time), then he is literally thrown into the recruitment office... and immediately thrown out again.
