Trivia

The scam Bernard is embroiled in involves "Lovebombing", where someone is intrigued and flattered by the personal interest and then drawn in by the promise of a wider circle of supposedly like-minded friends, and then is fleeced. See more »

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 November. The Grand National takes place in April. See more »

Quotes

Martin: I couldn't help overhearing. I know of a game if you're interested.
Fran: Anything. Anything to shut him up. Hey mister, do you mind if I sit in? I wanna make sure he doesn't lose too much. Hundred grand here, hundred grand there - it adds up.
Martin: That's not gonna be a problem.
