Revealing mistake: When Lister goes into Rimmer's new room, there is a slight glitch with the split screen. When Lister is laughing at Rimmer's newspaper headlines on the door, the camera changes and the first frame only has Lister and Rimmer with the scutters. In the next frame the second Rimmer appears and the scutter on the right has moved. (00:06:10)
Revealing mistake: When Rimmer gets into bed, near the start of the episode, you can see that he brushes past Lister's blanket hanging down and slightly moves it. He should not have been able to do this as he is a hologram, it should have passed through him. Rimmer's pillows and bedding move as well. (00:06:50)

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer and Lister leave their sleeping quarters, there are two pictures on the wall between the door and the window and a canister on the wall beside the beds. When they are next in the room the items are gone, and at The End of the episode they have all returned. (00:09:20 - 00:12:50)
Continuity mistake: When Rimmer leaves for his exam, the table in the room only has an ashtray on it. Moments later, when Lister locks the door, a magazine, a can and a mug have appeared on the table. (00:14:30)
