* A series of advertisements for the Vauxhall Astra featured the irascible executive JD (Nigel Hawthorne) and his put-upon subordinate Percy Atkins. In one advertisement, Atkins realised to his horror that the hitchhiking teenagers he'd picked up were JD's children, who'd heard all about Atkins from their father but had never seen him. Since they were behind a lorry of sheep at the time, he quickly gave his name as Ramsbottom.

** Cory named his band "The Exits". This is {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in the episode because before seeing the Exit sign, Cory glances at better names (like a flier for a 'Blood Drive'.)

* In the first episode of ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'', the Dragonborn Sorcerer Tiberius Stormwind uses magic to disguise himself as a dwarf. When asked for his name, he responds "Tiberius Kraghammer". Judging by the way Creator/OrionAcaba, the person playing as Tiberius, reacts to the ensuing laughter with confusion, he didn't seem to realize that Kraghammer was the name of the city they were currently in.
