Correction: After viewing the scene, it is quite clear Jen is pressing the buttons.

Correction: They were not motionless, we see the guy with his back turn move a bit. Plus, the one with the eyepatch speaks. But it's not unreasonable to think the guy would turn around after being recognized, and there was plenty of time for him to turn around while off camera.

Correction: It's a swinging door. Absurd as it sounds, it used to be a fire regulation that toilet doors open inwards - since this was impossible in practice, a lot of old buildings (like the theatre) have swinging doors on their dunnies.

Correction: This is less of a mistake, and more a deliberate effort as part of a running joke that episode in which Moss distrusts the functionality of anything made in Britain. The fact that it doesn't even behave correctly when ignited adds to the joke.

Continuity mistake: Jen is sitting at the sofa with the phone on her lap, waiting for Daniel's call. She is wearing no shoes. In the next shot, she stands up and instantly has black high heels on. (00:14:30)

Roy: [phone rings.] Hello, IT, have you tried turning it off and on again? Have you tried sticking it up your arse? [hangs up phone.] Oh, yeah, yeah, I just realized that was my mother.

Calamity Jen - S1-E2

Question: In this episode, there's a commercial about "999" being changed to a ridiculous long number. While I get why it would be funny, was there some basis for joke itself? Like, was there talk about the UK changing the emergency number or something? Or is it just completely random. And when Roy says "how hard is it to remember 911, I mean 999", is this just a joke for American viewers to understand what 999 is? Or do British people say or use "911" too?

Answer: It's a joke on the "118" numbers in the UK. 118 numbers were used for directory enquiries and adverts for them on TV always tried to give a way to easily remember one for a particular company. The fake ad in the show takes it to the extreme. People in the UK do not use "911", the point of the joke was that Roy had forgotten "999" while saying it was easy to remember.
