* StandardizedSitcomHousing: Averted. The front door location is opposite to the regular location, being located to the actor's right not left, and opens into a living room with multiple chairs that backs out into a hallway. The house doesn't have a second storey which is uncommon for American sitcom houses set in similar middle class areas, but is common in comparable Australian suburban housing. There are walls and doors in the right places, and the while the kitchen area is connected to the living room, it's never shot in the 'open plan' style common in American sitcom houses. It's also very small and realistically sized, with the door to the backyard in the same place it often is in many Australian homes.

* StandardizedSitcomHousing: by contrast, is set in what appears to be a realistic Australian house. Certainly, most Australian houses will have a separate lounge room (or living room) and kitchen, and many lounge rooms will have more than one comfy chair.

* MinorWithFakeID: In one episode, Debbie borrows Nudge's driver's licence so she can get into a nightclub. Interestingly, this plot worked when the episode was originally aired as at the time New South Wales licences did not a have photo and could have only the driver's initials: in this case 'G. Noritas', allowing Debbie to claim to be 'Geraldine'. Not long afterwar, law changed in New South Wales requiring the licence to have the driver's full name and photo.
