Goofs

At the start of the episode Manny has placed a bet for Bernard and himself in the Grand National. The next scene shows Bernard reading a copy of the Racing Post. The headline refers to European horses being given a bad draw in a race. Said race would have been the Breeders Cup, which is run in Novemeber. The Grand National takes place in April. See more »

Quotes

Fran: [Bernard is hooked on poker but has run up huge debts, his creditors demand payment or they will repossess his shop or cut his legs off. He turns to Fran and Manny for help] Ugh. Manny, do you still have those funny looking sunglasses you got in Whitstable?
Manny: Yeah, they're in the bathroom. You think they're funny looking?
[Fran nods]
Bernard Black: I'm going to be made homeless and short and you're chatting.
Fran: Relax. Everything's going to be fine.
