Flight into Terror - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: Ted and Dougal are sitting in the fourth row from the back for the journey. But when Ted presses the emergency button and after the credits, three completely different men are sitting in their seats. Everyone has been given seat numbers so they should not be sitting there.

Flight into Terror - S2-E10

Factual error: When Dougal and Ted enter the cockpit, the pilot points out the gauges for 'engines 1, 2 and 3'. They are in a Boeing 737 (the internal layout is that of a 737, not a BAE 146), which only has two engines.

Father Ted: Ah, Sister Assumpta.
Sister Assumpta: Hello Father.
Father Ted: Dougal, Dougal, do you remember Sister Assumpta?
Father Dougal: Er, no.
Father Ted: She was here last year. And then we stayed with her in the convent, back in Kildare. Do you remember it? Ah, you do. And then you were hit by the car when you went down to the shops for the paper. You must remember all that? And then you won a hundred pounds with your lottery card? Ah, you must remember it, Dougal.
[Dougal shakes his head.]
Sister Assumpta: And weren't you accidentally arrested for shoplifting? I remember we had to go down to the police station to get you. And the police station went on fire? And you had to be rescued by helicopter?
Father Ted: Do you remember? You can't remember any of that? The helicopter. When you fell out of the helicopter. Over the zoo. Do you remember the tigers?
[Dougal shakes his head some more.]
Father Ted: You don't remember? You were wearing your blue jumper.
Father Dougal: Ah, Sister Assumpta.
