The Full Monty

Question: Why does the alarm go off when Dave puts the Pick-n-Mix in his mouth and then stop when he steps on it?

Chosen answer: It's a sight gag. Dave's essentially stealing the candy, so the alarm goes off. When he crushes it, the alarm stops. It wouldn't really happen, but it's funny that the alarm stops when he removes the candy.

Gerald Arthur Cooper: Fat, David, is a feminist issue.
Dave: Well, what's that supposed to mean, when it's at home?
Gerald Arthur Cooper: I don't bloody know, do I? But it is.

Trivia: As the finale was filming, the actors performed the entire strip routine in front of the crowd - the only time that they went 'the full monty'. To counter understandable nerves, all the actors had enough to drink beforehand to make them at least slightly drunk. Some got a bit carried away and were very inebriated, for example, when Gaz kisses Nathe, it was not scripted (look at Nathe's face), but was carried out because Carlyle was drunk.
