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: 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.

Yesterday's Jam - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Denholm is holding the picture of the A-Team, he is holding it on the left side of the frame. When it cuts to him putting it down, he is holding it on the right side of the frame.

Yesterday's Jam - S1-E1

Roy: It's like they're all pally-wally when there's a problem with their printer, but once it's fixed-
Moss: They toss us away like yesterday's jam.
Roy: Yes! Yesterday's jam! That is what we are to them. Actually, you know what. That doesn't really work as a thing, because jam lasts for ages.

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?

Bishop73

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.
