Trivia

The song Sam dances to with Annie in the bar, right after meeting singer Jim Croce, is T. Rex's "Bang a Gong (Get it On)". In the original UK show's equivalent of this episode, the singer Sam runs into is T. Rex lead singer Marc Bolan, whom he advises to drive safely - especially around Minis. See more »
