Floss asks Harry where Tyler's mum has gone, to which Harry replies that she has gone home because she is poorly. Floss asks if the doctors will make her better, to which Harry replies yes. Floss says (with glee) that it means Tyler will get to stay at the DG, she then pushes the door to the bathroom and gets herself and Harry sloshed with water. Floss then yells for Tyler and she and Harry leave the bathroom.
- First appearance of Tyler's mum in real time, as opposed to a photograph or a cartoon animation.
- Final appearance of Mike (or Rocky, as he was renamed) the snake.
- Live While We're Young by One Direction is heard during the scene where the locusts are being rounded up.
- In Seriously Funny, Tyler's mum is shown in photographs to be a white skinned woman. In this episode she is black skinned. The white skinned woman seen in the photo is Tyler (Miles Butler-Hughton)'s mother in real life.
