* {{Squick}}: The sketch ends with the heavy implication that Miss Sophie and James are going upstairs to have sex.
* TheyJustDidntCare: Norwegian broadcasters always show this sketch on the 23rd of December, even though they know that everyone else shows it on New Year's Eve.

** The Danish broadcaster has shown it every year since 1968, with one exception in 1985, when the TV directors decided to try something new. The resulting deluge of phonecalls protesting its omision was enough to change their mind.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Germans Love Freddie Frinton. However, the feeling was never mutual. Frinton hated Germans, and was initially very reluctant to perform his trademark sketch for German television. It's also highly beloved in Norway, where it's shown on the evening of December 23rd. One year, the channel broadcasting it mistakenly aired it a few minutes before it was supposed to, leading to many people flipping the channel on while the sketch was already halfway through. This upset people so much numerous calls to the channel were made, and they had to air it one more time.

* MyRealDaddy: Freddie Frinton, so very much. He didn't write the original sketch, but added a lot of the gags and slapstick that made it memorable. And he was the one most famous for performing it, even before it was recorded for tv.

* [[AmericansHateTingle Britons Hate "Dinner For One"]]: The sketch has never been broadcast on British TV, and despite being inextricably associated with Britain by Europeans, is almost unknown there. Once, a documentary about Germany showed it to a British TV audience, who unanimously thought it was pitiful stuff.
