4 corrected entries in The Kipper and the Corpse (a.k.a. Death)

The Kipper and the Corpse (a.k.a. Death) - S2-E4

Corrected entry: In the scene where Sybil is talking on the phone in the lobby about the short elderly gentleman guest and has tall redhead bimbo, just before the old man and his bimbo come in you can see the bimbo come past the corner of the office wall early, then stop, then start walking again on cue.

Correction: She doesn't stop. She slows down, but doesn't stop.

A Demon

The Kipper and the Corpse (a.k.a. Death) - S2-E4

Corrected entry: The short elderly gentleman and the tall redhead bimbo are leaving the bar. After 15-20 seconds Basil is shown leaving the bar too. But Basil comes through the lobby before them.

Per Mikkelsen

Correction: As they leave you can see their reflection in the glass cabinet just outside the lounge and they stop.

A Demon

The Kipper and the Corpse (a.k.a. Death) - S2-E4

Corrected entry: In the scene where Basil and Manuel are trying to hide the corpse, just after the corpse's work partner come to 'collect' him, Basil and Manuel try to hide the body in the kitchen (where the Doctor is cooking sausages). If you look in the background, towards the room behind the reception, you can see the actors standing there, watching John Cleese finish his scene.

Correction: Already established they wanted to talk to him, and as it's not polite to go barging in we was simply waiting for the appropriate moment.

The Kipper and the Corpse (a.k.a. Death) - S2-E4

Corrected entry: In the scene where Basil, Polly and Manuel take the corpse back into it's previous room and find the new guest blowing a doll, just after they go back out of the room with the corpse watch the right side of the screen and you will see the Major briefly appear, mistakenly, and disappear again when he sees that the scene is still in progress.

Correction: This could well be the Major just wandering around in the hotel going about his business.

Quotes

Mrs Richards: And another thing. I expect to be able to see the sea.
Basil: [whispering to Manuel.] Deaf, Mad and Blind. [To Mrs Richards.] Yes, this is the view as far as I can remember... Yes, yes it is.
Mrs Richards: When I pay for a view, I expect something more interesting than that.
Basil: But that is Torquay, madam.
Mrs Richards: Well it's not good enough.
Basil: Well may I ask what you expected to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically across the plain...
Mrs Richards: [interrupting.] Don't be silly. I expect to be able to see the sea.
Basil: You CAN see the sea! It's over there between the land and the sky!
Mrs Richards: I'd need a telescope to see that.
Basil: Well might I suggest you move to a hotel closer to the sea. Or preferably in it.
Mrs Richards: Now listen to me. I'm not satisified but I've decided to stay. HOWEVER, I shall expect a deduction.
Basil: Why, because Krakatoa isn't erupting at the moment?
Mrs Richards: Because the room is cold, the bath is too small, the view is invisible and the radio doesn't work.
Basil: No, the radio works. You don't.
