* XMeetsY: ''Dinner for One'' has been remade to death into many {{crossover}}s leading to this trope. For example, ''Dinner für Brot'' is ''Dinner for One'' meets ''Bernd das Brot'' with [[UpToEleven even more mayhem]] than the original.

* RunningGag: Every time James walks from the table to the kitchen, he trips over the head of a tiger skin lying on the floor. There are only three exceptions to this.
** The first time (when he has just served the white wine) he narrowly misses the head, much to his own surprise. Instead, he trips over it on his way back to the table.
** The second time (after serving the champagne), he steps over it SillyWalk style.
** The third time (after serving the port), he jumps over it.
** Another running gag involves James pausing to talk to Sir Toby every time he charges his glass - presumably because Sir Toby wants a bit more wine.

* TheAlcoholic: Sir Toby.

* TheAlcoholic: Sir Toby.
Toby was a heavy drinker.
* AlcoholHic: Inevitable.''Inevitable'', since James has to make a toast for Miss Sophie's dead friends between every course.

'''''Dinner for One''''', also known as ''The 90th Birthday'', was a popular British {{vaudeville}} sketch that gained world fame after being recorded for German television in 1963, with English dialogue following a brief introduction in German. While they were at it, the same actors also made a version for Swiss television, with only a few modifications.[[note]]The German version has survived in a copy of the original videotape - the Swiss version is preserved on a film recording with optical sound, and is therefore of inferior quality.[[/note]]

This short comical play subsequently became the most frequently repeated TV program ever, according to the Guinness Book of Records. The 18-minute black-and-white 1963 TV recording, featuring British comedians Freddie Frinton and May Warden, has become an integral component of the New Year's Eve television schedule of several countries. This has a very great deal to do with the extremely physical nature of the comedy - similar to the international success of Series/MrBean.

Frinton is almost forgotten in his homeland, although he can be seen in a very brief uncredited cameo on a DVD episode of ''The Arthur Haynes Show''.
