Trivia / Ringer

  • Actor Allusion: In "Let's Kill Bridget," Juliet tells Andrew not to be "so Welsh." Guess where Ioan Gruffudd (Andrew) comes from.
    • In one episode, Andrew's immigration records are looked up. Despite the character having an English accent, his place of birth in those records is listed as Wales.
    • Siobhan / Bridget claims School Camp Slasher is her favorite film in "PS You're an Idiot." Given who plays her this comes as absolutely no surprise.
  • Dueling Works: With ABC Family's The Lying Game. It lost.
  • Fake American: Gemma, played by British actress Tara Summers (Boston Legal, What a Girl Wants). And in spite of her very Sunnydale connected handle, that's her real name.
  • Fan Nickname: "Shivet" for Bridget when she's impersonating Siobhan.
  • "I Fall to Pieces" by Patsy Cline, the song that comes on and nearly gets Bridget killed in the pilot, was played in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Prophecy Girl" in Xander's bedroom.
  • Bridget, who was Buffy the Vampire Slayer, punches Mr. Carpenter, played by Jason Dohring, who was once a vampire on Moonlight.
  • Staff refer to Bridget pretending to be Siobhan as "Shivette."
  • Life Imitates Art: Like Siobhan, Sarah Michelle Gellar really did become pregnant in the course of the series (which would have been problematic for the series had it been renewed — and may have been partly the reason why it wasn't).
  • Playing Their Own Twin: Sarah Michelle Gellar as Bridget and Siobhan.
