                                        Well, i thought if ANY of the Spaced references, you'd have pointed out the: "So whats the plan" with the style of the plan like in one episode of spaced OR when Shaun meets the actress he is with nearly all of Spaced as well as the landlady in line with her

                                                When Shaun uses the lighter to find the lift controls at the end is a reference to the 1990 remake of night of the living dead.
