Goof: Gifford places the miniaturized Rolls-Royce on top of the FV603, which in a later scene is bombarded by mortar shells.

Emma, totting up the amount as the boxes grow higher, comments that she never knew Steed was so wealthy. Suddenly she stops in her tacks. "That's 9,999. You're just short of a million', she tells him. Steed is fraught with despair: who ever heard of a nine-thousand-nine-hundred and ninety-nine-aire? It's Emma to the rescue as, handing Steed a half-penny piece, she comments 'You are now a self-made, fully-fledged, halfpenny millionaire!'

How could he, Emma already has them in her hand!
Tag: Repairing an electric toaster, Steed triumphantly declares the repair complete. Warily, Emma pops two slices of bread in the device - then stands back as the toaster explodes and zooms towards the ceiling.

Tag: Arriving at Emma's apartment and astonished to see flowers in every corner, Steed frustrates Emma by pretending to know nothing of her 'special occasion'. Then, coming clean and inviting her to join him on a flight to Parish, she repays him in kind by stating that she is already packed!
