Judgement - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: In the scene with David and Gareth in David's office, David gives a hole-punch to Gareth as a souvenir. The hole-punch has a guide accessory sticking out of it (to punch holes in the middle of different sizes of paper), which is adjustable. At the beginning of the scene it only sticks out by about 2 cm, but by the time David hands it to Gareth it is about 5 cm - even though no-one has touched it.

New Girl - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Donna comes in late and David is asking her where she has been, as it changes shots between Donna and David, in the background Dawn's right sleeve changes from being down to up at wrist height several times but she is in the same posture all the time.

David Brent: If you want the rainbow you got to take the rain too. You know which "philosopher" said that? Dolly Parton. And people say she's just a big pair of tits.

David Brent: I don't look upon this like it's the end, I look upon it like it's moving on, you know. It's almost like my work here's done. I can't imagine Jesus going 'Oh, I've told a few people in Bethlehem I'm the son of God, can I just stay here with Mum and Dad now?' No. You gotta move on. You gotta spread the word. You gotta go to Nazareth, please. And that's, very much like... Me. My world does not end within these four walls, Slough's a big place. And when I've finished with Slough, there's Reading, Aldershot, Bracknell, you know I've got to... Didcott, Yately. You know. My... Winersh, Taplow. Because I am my own boss, I can... Burfield. I can wake up one morning and go 'Ooh, I don't feel like working today, can I just stay in bed?' 'Ooh, don't know, better ask the boss.' 'David can I stay in bed all day?' 'Yes you can David.' Both me, that's not me in bed with another bloke called David.

Gareth: That's one reason why gays shouldn't be allowed into the army. Because if we're in battle, is he going to be looking at the enemy, or is he going to be looking at me and going "Ooh. He looks tasty in his uniform." And I'm not homophobic, all right? Come round, look at my CDs. You'll see Queen, George Michael, Pet Shop Boys. They're all bummers.
