New this month Continuity mistake: When Rimmer falls asleep whilst Lister is doing the jigsaw, there is a whisky bottle on the table. Later in the episode, when being viewed on the black box, the whiskey bottle is no longer on the table. Lister could not have thrown it away since he left the table to the Hologram Simulation Suite at the end of the scene.

New this month Continuity mistake: When Lister is doing the jigsaw and Rimmer starts singing in bed, the pint mug on the table has nothing in it. Later on, when Lister returns after giving Rimmer his memory, an inch of whisky has suddenly appeared in the bottom of the mug.

New this month Revealing mistake: In the opening, Holly gives an additional message saying "On our journey, we have encountered many strange and bizarre things. Only last month, we can across a moon which was shaped exactly like Felicity Kendal's bottom. We flew around that one a couple of times." Before Holly says "We flew around that one a couple of times", he can be seen about to say the line, but visibly hesitates, presumably waiting for his cue.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Holly interrupts Rimmer learning Esperanto saying "The menu looks interesting", he appears on the TV screen, with his chin blocked by the edge of the frame. The shot then cuts to a view of the screen, and his entire face is suddenly fully in the frame.
New this month Continuity mistake: In the lift, when the woman in the video is explaining how the lift works, she mentions "a bag will drop containing sedatives and cyanide capsules", pointing upwards. The shot cuts to Lister, and the woman in the video can be seen to the left of shot, with her arms at her side.
New this month Continuity mistake: In the hotel room, when future Lister is telling Lister he doesn't look pleased to see him, the two Listers are standing directly in front of each other, but from another angle, future Lister is standing around 90° rotated from before, and a few steps to the right of Lister.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Lister is in the hotel room with future Lister and Kochanski, Lister says he came because he thought he was going to get married whilst talking to future Lister, but in the next shot, Lister's facial expression has suddenly changed and is now looking more confused.
New this month Continuity mistake: When future Lister is making Lister and Cat leave the hotel room, Lister begins talking to future Lister about living his life. Future Lister is standing beside the door in one shot, but has his head suddenly resting on the door in the next shot.
New this month Other mistake: The shots of Blue Midget driving back to Red Dwarf that are shown from behind are visibly the exact same shots used each time. This is evident as the driving movements of Blue Midget, its position in the frame, and Red Dwarf's position in the background are all identical each time.

Continuity mistake: Lister and Rimmer's bunk room looks exactly the same in the flashback scenes during this series as it does in the present time. In the first series it looked completely different, so surely the look should have changed slightly for the flashback scenes?
Audio problem: During the conversation in which Holly wants to prove he has an IQ of 6000 (while Lister and the Cat are scrubbing the floor), there is a brief moment where you can see the TV Holly is on (at an angle). You can hear sound coming from him, but his lips aren't moving.
Other mistake: The tax letter and Rimmer's mother's letter are both already opened before Lister takes the letters out. As there is no one else aboard Red Dwarf, the letters would not have been checked by anyone so they should still be sealed. Also, not all of the letters are already open, just the two that Rimmer receives.
Revealing mistake: During filming of the this episode, Craig Charles was called away for the birth of his son, Jack, so production manager Mike Agnew stepped in. Although Lister is wearing a space suit at the time you can still tell which part is Mike thanks to a continuity error - Mike forgot to put on Lister's plaster cast.
