"calls Will a wanker on at least one occasion."

IIRC, Phil Collins also used wanker in an episode of Miami Vice many tears ago. It seems that it's way of getting swear words past the overly cautious US networks censors, ie, use words they don't understand which really are swear words instead of inventing euphemisms like Frack!
