Only Fools and Horses

Strangers on the Shore - S9-E2

Other mistake: Boycie asks to sleep in the Trotter's flat after being chucked out of his house and not allowed back in due to a gas leak. He states "I was going to check into a hotel, but I've left everything in the house; wallet, credit card, car keys, the lot... so all I've got is what I'm wearing." He isn't shown to be carrying any luggage. Later in the episode, Raquel complains that Boycie keeps putting on the hair gel that Del added onion puree to at the start of the episode. How was Boycie able to get his hair gel that was in his gas-filled house? One could propose that he asked the firefighters to receive it, but why wouldn't he also ask them to retrieve his wallet/credit card so that he can book into a hotel rather than sleeping on the sofa in the Trotter's overcrowded flat? (00:58:00 - 01:05:00)

Tea for Three - S5-E4

Other mistake: At the end, Rodney is looking at a map to see where Del ended up. But he didn't know where he had landed at this point so there was no point.

Mother Nature's Son - S99-E12

Other mistake: After Del-boy is finished filling the first set of water bottles with the hose, he moves the rig and sets up some new ones. Now, when he pours, the water doesn't go into the bottles, but rather pours over the side. Despite this, Del continues working as though everything is fine. (00:43:45)

Strained Relations - S4-E2

Revealing mistake: When everyone's back at the flat, as Del Boy is looking straight down the hallway to his and Rodney's bedroom, someone comes up to him and he turns around. When it goes from his close-up to the wide shot of everyone else the shadow of the camera reversing backwards is visible for a few seconds.

Modern Men - S8-E2

Mike: Well?
Trigger: Well what?
Mike: What are they naming the baby?
Trigger: If it's a girl, they're calling her Sigourney, after an actress. And if it's a boy, they're calling him Rodney, after Dave.
