* DidNotDoTheResearch: The Israeli woman Jeff tries to talk to at the bar speaks a middle class sociolect of English. In RealLife, she would be at least partially proficient in English, and would struggle to understand Jeff’s Welsh accent, not the English dialogue itself.

* FridgeBrilliance: The first time we meet Oliver's ex-girlfriend Tamsin, he asks her if her breasts are bigger, and she tells him that no, they're just more inaccessible to him.
