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.

Scott of the Antarctic - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: In the last shot, the familiar 16 tons weight is broken at the top, showing that it is in fact not a solid weight, but a hollow box.

Spam - S2-E12

Character mistake: When Mrs. Bun asks the dining lady if she has anything without spam in it, she forgot about egg & bacon, and egg, sausage & bacon. Those had no spam in them.

Spam - S2-E12

Character mistake: During the "Communist Quiz", Eric Idle fails to mention that "the Hammers" is the nickname of West Ham United.

Spam - S2-E12

Character mistake: When Mrs. Bun asks the dining lady if she has anything without spam in it, she recommends "spam, egg, sausage and spam". This was not in the menu that the dining lady read aloud at the start of the sketch.

How to Recognise Different Parts of the Body - S2-E9

Other mistake: The final 'How to Recognise' announcement is originally written as "Number thirty. The End." When the show was broadcast, it was "Number thirty one. The End", yet all the other numbering tallies with the script. So either Cleese miscounted on the night of recording or they inserted another one which was later cut.

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.
