Bambi - S2-E1

Trivia: It's obvious that they just walked into the train station and started filming, because all throughout the sequence people are staring at them.

Nasty - S2-E3

Rik: Oh no, the front door's exploded. Vyvyan.
Mike: Vyvyan.

Summer Holiday - S2-E6

Mike: Where's Vyvyan?
Rik: Well, he said he was going inside to water his plant. Strange that such a ruthless and sadistic maniac as Vyvyan should care for a begonia. Must have had it two years now.
Mike: And it was dead when he got it.
Rik: Yes... Still, give him his credit - he's watered it every day!
Mike: Only because he can't be bothered to go upstairs to the lavatory.

Boring - S1-E3

Question: What is the name of the band playing in the pub? They sing 'Welcome to the House of Fun' and seem very familiar to me, but I can't figure out how.

New this month Answer: Madness also appeared in the episode "Sick", where they performed their song "Our House", which was their biggest (and only major) hit in the US.

Boring - S1-E3

Question: What is it exactly that Rik reads from the paper? The thing that Neil repeats that brings the little devil to them? I'm assuming it's a poorly pronounced version of something that was in the papers at that time, but I can't think of anything that fits it.

Gary O'Reilly

Chosen answer: It wasn't referring to anything real, just that the government's bureaucratic naming, The Guardian's mangled spelling or Rick's bad pronounciation resulted in the unlikely word "Footumch" being spoken.
