The Jolly Boys' Outing - S99-E8

Continuity mistake: When Del says to Rodney "Rodney, give me that ball!", while Rodney and his mates are playing football, Boycie is walking behind them. The next shot is Rodney and behind him is Boycie in the coach as if he has been sitting there all along.

The Jolly Boys' Outing - S99-E8

Continuity mistake: In 'The Unlucky Winner Is' (which is set before Rodney and Cassandra marry) Del changes Rodney's date of birth to 2nd November 1974 in order to make him appear 14, meaning this episode is set sometime between November 1988 and November 1989. However, in this episode, which takes place after Rodney and Cassandra have been married a whole year, a sign in the window of the coach (which can be seen just as the coach is leaving the police station) states that this episode takes place in 1989, and it is on a Bank Holiday weekend, thus can be no later than August 1989.

The Jolly Boys' Outing - S99-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the hotel whre Mickey, Jevon and Denzil are staying, at the end of one shot, Denzil is putting salt on to his dinner yet in the next shot, he has his knife and fork in his hands and is eating his dinner. Certainly no time to put the salt down and pick up his knife and fork.

Plot hole: After discovering that there was a rail strike and that they had missed the last bus home, the 27-member coach party all go their separate ways to try and find accommodation for the night. Boycie, Mike and Alan head off together while Trigger is left behind on his own to decide on which direction he wishes to walk in to try and find his own digs. Later on that evening, Boycie, Mike and Trigger seemingly all arrive at the nightclub together. How come? Especially after Trigger informs Del and Rodney that the place where he is staying is different to where Boycie and Mike are staying.

Continuity mistake: Raquel says that she doesn't have any family, except for an estranged brother. However, in the season 8 episode "Time is on our Hands", her parents coming to dinner is a central theme. (00:58:00 - 00:58:30)

Trigger: Problems, Dave?
Rodney: I don't want to talk about it Trig. You ever been wrongly accused of something?
Trigger: Yeah once.
Rodney: Yeah, How did you get out of it?
Trigger: Well I didn't - I was guilty.

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.
