Cultural References

During Bret's interrogation of Jemaine as to why he is moving out, Bret refers to Jemaine getting a "hickey from Judy Bailey". He is referring to veteran New Zealand news reader Judy Bailey.

In the same conversation, Bret mentions his mould collection. He refers to one mould by name, which he pronounces 'Aspergillius Finigus'. This appears to be a made-up name, although Aspergillus (no 'i') is a real genus of fungus. It is possible he is just mispronouncing the word 'fungus', or the real mould 'Aspergillus fumigatus'.

Famous quotes containing the word cultural:
