  • We see Perry frown for the very first time in this episode.
  • This marks the first time we see Perry and J.D. interact with each other.
  • This is the third time we see Robot wear his eye-lense shades; the first time was in Nobody Panic!, and were recently used again in Speeding Ticket.
  • This episode reveals that despite Perry having a somewhat dislike for Robot, he does consider Robot a friend in some ways, and vice versa.
  • Robot's voice seems to sound much deeper in some parts of this episode.
  • It is revealed that J.D. has a degree in Chemical Engineering.
  • Bea Holder actually made her first [cameo] appearance in Doctor? No!. This episode marks her first major appearance.
  • The scene where Robot enters in the Makin' Bacon, Ogo shoves everyone in the way while saying "Back off, Johnny's come lately", which is a reference to the to the movie of the same name. 
  • This marks the second time Ogo is seen in the Makin' Bacon. The first time was in Nobody Panic.


(At the Makin' Bacon, after Monster tells the news of Robot's sudden fame)

Spitfire: (laughs) Robot is the new standard beauty?

Ogo: (suddenly hops from behind counter) I always thought so!

(Spitfire and Monster stare at him awkwardly)

Monster: Anyway...(pops bacon into his mouth) I'm happy for him! Robot's always been self-concious about his looks. I think this will really boost his confidence.

Robot: Behold me in all my glory! (basks in the attention he receives)

Spitfire: Well, it's working, alright.

Punch Morley: (seeing Perry's smile) Now there's a happy fella!

Perry: Put a sock in it!

(after Perry's smile is noticed)

Woman: (to her baby) See? There's always something to smile about!

Perry: Blow it out your ear, lady!

Baby: (cries)

(after Perry successfully gains his frown thanks to J.D.'s spray)

Perry: I can mope! I can scowl! This is the BEST day of my life!

J.D.: Now the effects are temporary, so we're going to have to keep spraying you.

Perry: Thank you, J.D.! I'd smile at you, but I'm so SICK of smiling!
