Continuity mistake: The cross carried to the crucifixion scene by the Saintly Passer-by looks nothing like the one they crucify him on. The cross bar is a narrow pole, and the upright is much smaller than the one he ends up on. They do not crucify him on a different cross - he is roughly pushed down on the flimsy prop cross he carried, then instantly is hauled upright on a sturdy one.

Continuity mistake: After Brian is caught by the alien spacecraft, his yamulka is in front of his hairline. But, once the camera pulls away to show the aliens his yamulka is placed very far back on his head.

Quotes

Boring Prophet: There shall in that time be rumors of things going astray, erm, and there shall be a great confusion as to where things really are, and nobody will really know where lieth those little things with the sort of raffia-work base, that has an attachment. At that time, a friend shall lose his friend's hammer, and the young shall not know where lieth the things possessed by their fathers that their fathers put there only just the night before, about eight o'clock.
