Mr. & Mrs. Brian Norris' Ford Popular - S3-E2

Intermission - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the vegetarian restaurant sketch, Eric Idle stands right behind the pointy sculpture. It is quite short and in some shots the points of it are visible right at the bottom of the screen, but in other shots people stand and walk through right where it is meant to be. And in the final shot, when Eric is complaining about the punchline, it is definitely gone.

Dinsdale - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: During the Ministry of Silly Walks sketch, in the office, John Cleese pulls out a film-projector from his desk, and you can see the power cord plugged into the back of it. After the spoof black-and-white film footage showing the silly walks, John Cleese throws the projector away. The power cord, which was originally plugged in, has disappeared completely.

Sex and Violence - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: We are told that the Germans develop and broadcast the "V-Joke" in 1944, but when we cut to Terry Jones and Graham Chapman listening to their radio and hearing the joke, the caption reads "1942...Somewhere in England".

Salad Days - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: In the 'Sam Peckinpah's Salad Days' sketch in Series 3, Show 7, the scene suddenly changes from a bright sunny day to a pitch black night - this was apparently due to technical delays, but the effect makes it look like an extension of the 'pretentious director' parody.

Quotes

Kenny Lust: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the refreshment room here at Bletchley. My name is Kenny Lust and I'm your compère for tonight. You know, once in a while it is my pleasure, and my privilege, to welcome here at the refreshment room, some of the truly great international artists of our time. And tonight we have one such artist. Ladies and gentlemen, someone whom I've always personally admired, perhaps more deeply, more strongly, more abjectly than ever before. A man... Well, more than a man, a god, a great god, whose personality is so totally and utterly wonderful my feeble words of welcome sound wretchedly and pathetically inadequate. Someone whose boots I would gladly lick clean until holes wore through my tongue, a man who is so totally and utterly wonderful, that I would rather be sealed in a pit of my own filth than dare tread on the same stage with him! Ladies and gentlemen... The incomparably superior human being, Harry Fink!
Man: [from offstage.] He can't come!
Kenny Lust: Never mind, he's not all he's cracked up to be.
