One thing I noticed though, around the 41-minute mark, Billy is talking about a character in Blinded by the Light, and refers to him as a 'Paki'. Here in the UK, that's a racial slur used against people who (like me) are brown. Is this different in the US? Obviously I know that no one on the show has any negative racial feelings, and I don't want to come across as precious, but I was curious when I heard that word used.....

While it's used much less often in the US, that term is just as offensive here. Cringed.
