-- Of course, once the time [[PortalSlam portal closes]] in the final episode, Gary loses his endless supply of future-forged banknotes and his access to modern luxury items. Still, his future knowledge should allow him to make enough money to live off for the rest of his life.

** This could be a case of FridgeBrilliance; the first two instances can be explained as the result of the time portal being hit with a large blast of energy (from lightning, or the bomb) temporarily destabilising its normal effect. In the last case, it was mentioned in an episode early in the final season that time agents from the future had identified Gary's time portal and were working on closing it. Presumably, they finished the job just as Gary was saving Clement Atlee's life, leading him to become stuck there.

* ContrivedCoincidence: In the final episode, Yvonne and Ron are in Gary's Mayfair flat juat as he is writing his message to Ron on the wall back in the 1940s, revealing that he is now trapped in the past. There is probably no other way Ron could have convinced Yvonne that her husband was really a time traveller.

* HenpeckedHusband: Gary to Yvonne and Ron to Stella. [[spoiler:It's no wonder he decided to stay with Phoebe in the end.]]
* KarmaHoudini: Stella. She was continually abusive to him, cheated on him, and then blackmailed him into accepting a one-sided divorce (following an altercation with Stella's fancy man when Ron came home early) that ended up leaving him without his money, home, or business.

* DenserAndWackier: Started out as a fairly straight sitcom about a cheating husband with a time travel twist but in the final series we had Gary being split into multiple Garys, a time travelling teenage criminal from the future and JackTheRipper.

* JackTheRipper: Appears in one episode where Gary accidentally time-travels the wrong way. Turns out his mysterious disappearance was because he, too, was a time traveller, and got run over in modern London.

* ActorAllusion: In one episode someone props up the bar access behind Gary and he almost leans on the empty space, but then notices and nods to himself -- this provokes gales of uproarious laughter from the audience, which will seem a strange non sequitur to anyone not familiar with the famous scene in ''OnlyFoolsAndHorses'' in which Del Boy (not Lyndhurst's character Rodney, oddly) does the same but goes crashing to the floor with a fixed expression.
** In one episode Gary claims he was taught how to speak in any dialect: his cockney is identical to Rodney.



* FakeBrit: Irish actress Dervla Kirwan as Phoebe.



* TheOtherDarrin: ''Both'' of the actresses playing Gary's two wives were replaced for Series Four onwards. Michelle Holmes left and was replaced with Emma Amos when she decided Yvonne was underused and had no scope for character development, whilst Dervla Kirwan left to concentrate on ''Series/{{Ballykissangel}}'', her friend Elizabeth Carling was her own recommendation as a replacement Phoebe.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Averted, many famous characters appear in the 1940s segments...but of course none of them are around to complain about their portrayal. In later series, NoelCoward was a recurring character and ClementAttlee appears in the final episode.
