When Rachel (Lorraine Pilkington) tries on her boots at the bar, two older men ogle her legs, while she slides them on. Peter (Luke Griffin) exclaims that she'd give the two lads a heart attack. Rachel replies, "Well at least they'll die smiling", before lifting up a slither of her skirt to show more leg. Jimmy Keogh, who portrayed one of the older men, portrayed the title character in Waking Ned Devine (1998), who died smiling from the shock of having a winning lottery ticket.
