** Interestingly, early on in the film's production, it was intended that this be Jiminy's main shtick. For example, he describes Honest John the Fox and Gideon the Cat as "a couple of ill winds in cheap clothing".

* Lampshaded in ''DirkGentlysHolisticDetectiveAgency'', after Michael Wenton-Weakes's mother is described as a battle-axe: "She had been waiting patiently -- or at least with the appearance of patience -- in the wings all this time, being the devoted wife, the doting but strict mother.
