** PlayedForLaughs with all of the deaths in the finale. One woman is murdered by [[spoiler:Alan]] when he holds her down in the shop while he and [[spoiler:Joanna]] are robbing her; his bum is plantly firmly over her face and she suffocates.
** Guy tells Martin he accidentally killed someone because he stopped a patient's real details coming in ontime during a heart-transplant after sending an email about his yogurt. Of course, Guy was probably lying.
