** D:Ream's 1994 song "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgMl9qBTBq0 Things Can Only Get Better]]", which featured a young Brian Cox on keyboards. (Sort of; he wasn't on the record itself but since he was in the live band, he had to play it a lot.)

to:

**Brian's youthfulness (believe it or not, Brian is older than Robin. Not by much but still).
**Brian's wealth and the fact that he always has people doing stuff for him.
**Brian's wistful soliloquies up mountains, volcanos, and other high places attracting women (and some men).

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first series included some scripted comedy sketches, none of which were anywhere near as funny as the unscripted banter between guests. These were quickly dropped.

* AmbiguousSyntax: The title of the show, occasionally discussed by the panel. If a cage is infinite, how is it a cage? Or is it a finite cage somehow containing an infinite number of monkeys? Or is it just one single, infinitely huge monkey, and if so, how could there even ''be'' a cage...?



* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: When introducing Sir Patrick Stewart in a episode about "Space Exploration" Robin Ince reels off a long list of his classical and Shakespearean theatre credits before ending with "and some American TV show as well".
* RunningGag: When a strawberry is considered dead.
** Brian's perfect hair (which may or may not be a wig).

* RunningGag: MonkeysOnATypewriter: The inspiration for the title. One listener once wrote in to ask what the ACTUAL dimensions of the hypothetical cage were, since it'd still be an infinitely sized cage if two dimensions were fixed but smaller than a monkey and the final dimension infinitely big.
