Trivia Edit

  • The title refers to Jen's lie about being able to speak Italian, whilst also referencing the Danish movie "Italiensk for Begyndere" (Italian for Beginners) though the 2000 movie and this episode of The IT Crowd do not have any similarities plot-wise.
  • The Italian Jen speaks translates as. "Everyone likes cat smell. Spiders."
