3. The fight would actually be over a particularly heated game of Kerbs and not basketball

It wouldn’t end well.

12. Geoffrey would be an au pair because posh English butlers in tuxedos really aren’t a thing here

13. Will’s childhood friend Jackie would come back into his life after getting a GAA scholarship at Maynooth

And she’d be played by Georgia Salpa.

14. Carlton would rent out the gaff for a Coronas music video when his parents are away

16. And finally… the Carlton dance would always be accompanied by a Crystal Swing backing track

And they would guest star in multiple episodes – because they fit perfectly with the dance.
