- Angela Dotchin invents a new word
- Angela Bloomfield gets confused over who she's talking to
- Peter Elliott almost gets hit by part of the set
- Peter Elliott manages to stay in character after Tandi Wright hits a pot plant
- John Leigh performs miracles on a sick dog
- Peter Elliott has some bother with Elizabeth McRae's cheque
- Michael Galvin hurts his leg
- Roy Snow gets his cords confused
- Theresa Healey has a bumpy kiss
- Paul Ellis's face is grabbed by a baby 
- Ido Drent announces he's pregnant
- Craig Parker hits a pot plant
- Mr Whippy distracts Nisha Madhan 
- Angela Bloomfield fluffs her line
- Angela Bloomfield battles dialogue and weapons
- Lee Donoghue forgets a line
- and more!
