Basil: Good morning, good morning.
Miss Gatsby: Oh you're very cheerful this morning, Mr Fawlty.
Basil: Yes, well one of the guests has just died.
The recording of the final episode, "Basil the Rat", was cancelled due to a BBC strike, and therefore the episode was not broadcast until October 1979, six months after the rest of the series. See more...

Revealing: When Basil sneaks into Raylene's room to listen for the "extra guest" in Johnson's room, Raylene wakes up screaming. When Sybil comes in, turns the light on and Basil says "I didn't know she was there, I just came in to check the walls", look at the extreme right of the screen. You can see the shadow of a boom light on the wall.
Revealing: Just after Polly comes down to to the kitchen to tell Sybil that Mr Leeman's dead and they leave, Basil wanders back in, to learn the news. Watch the wall on the right on the staircase when Basil shoves past Sybil on the stairs. The wall shakes so much at that point it's virtually impossible to miss.
Character mistake: When Sybil is telling Basil that the two men and the woman are coming to collect Mr Leeman but he's already pronounced dead, she tells her husband that they are coming to collect him "at lunchtime". However, his colleagues told Mr Leeman they'd collect him at 9:30 and not lunchtime.
