Lady Penelope: "I'm going to remain on board and keep the pipe safe. As they say, the owner always goes down with the rig."
Doyle: "I don't think anyone says that."
Lady Penelope: "Well they should."

Parker: "M'lady, I've every faith in you, but that new EVA suit hasn't been tested."
Lady Penelope: "And I can't think of a better time to try it. Who knew Brains has such an eye for fashion?"

Parker: "M'lady, are you all right?"
Lady Penelope: "Thankfully, I am. You may not drive everything correctly, Parker, but your FAB 1 skills remain superb."
Parker: "Oh, she's making me blush!"

  • The name of the rig crewman during this episode, Hooper, is a reference to the one with the same name in Atlantic Inferno.
  • This is the second episode to feature only one Tracy (the first one being Undercover).
  • This is the first time Lady Penelope wears an EVA uniform like the Tracy's and Kayo's, albeit a slightly simpler design and without the standard vehicle patch on the arm or number on her scuba helmet - the helmet however having pink triangles with a white electrical symbol either side instead.
  • When this episode was listed in the Radio Times, Malloy's name was mispelt as Mallow.
  • Malloy shares his name with Harry Malloy, a crook appearing in Brink of Disaster, and both are voiced by David Graham.
