** This could also mean why he referenced YouTube and ''Film/ThereWillBeBlood''; he didn't bother to remember the name of whatever video-sharing platform was in use at the time, nor did he bother to remember which film Jamie talked about. The names change over time, depending on what's relevant at the time Malcolm is reminiscing of the events of ''In the Loop''.

** Phil also makes a bizarre reference to Jon Snow and "balancing the good and the bad", and in a deleted scene describes the Minister of Dosac as being the equivalent of the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, which in a strange way, it is.
