Miami Twice (2) - S99-E11

Audio problem: Del and Rodney are on the plane to Miami. Rodney tells Del to take the headphones off. Del's mouth says 'what, these?', but it is overdubbed with a laugh.

Miami Twice (2) - S99-E11

Other mistake: Del had the smuggler's letter in his pocket when he fell in the swamp. When he takes it out at the rangers station, it's perfectly dry. Surely, it should be soaked.

Modern Men - S8-E2

Mike: Well?
Trigger: Well what?
Mike: What are they naming the baby?
Trigger: If it's a girl, they're calling her Sigourney, after an actress. And if it's a boy, they're calling him Rodney, after Dave.

Trivia: The story behind why Trigger calls Rodney Dave is that apparently Roger Lloyd Pack kept getting names mixed up during rehearsals early on in the show's history. "Dave" came from David Jason when he was actually with Nicholas Lyndhurst [Rodney]. It stuck and quickly became part of the show's immense appeal.
