Trivia

When Douglas is being interviewed by April, he starts listing film titles that he thinks describes himself, and The Bourne Identity (2002) is among them. The fight that he and April get into later in the episode was referred to by producer 'Graham Linehan' as "The Bourne Identity Fight," as he wanted it to be made in the same style as the fight scenes from the Bourne films.
