  • As opposed to "No Weddings and a Funeral", where Anthony Head simply whispered jokes into Nick Mohammed's ear to try to get him to laugh, in this episode the unheard phrase Rupert whispers to Nate is "You're welcome." The line was unscripted and came about from conversations Jason Sudeikis and Head had on set about what Rupert might say. According to Mohammed, "[The line] felt very, very fitting — it’s just so patronizing, so smug and self-important, all matters of horrible."[1]
