  • When he travels back to Victorian London, Gary is mistaken for Jack the Ripper, and is chased by an angry mob. He manages to duck into an alleyway, and the mob goes in the other direction. He breathes a sigh of relief...then the camera pans out to reveal that Jack's standing right next to him.
  • Gary's lament in one episode.
    Gary: You know, I read somewhere Stephen Hawking is close to unraveling the mysteries of the universe. Good, maybe he can give me an answer for why Time Travel gives me gas?

  • In the first episode of Season 2, Gary decides to attempt a Compound Interest Time Travel Gambit, and goes to a local bank to deposit a large amount of money. He meets the bank manager and his employees, who behave (and are named) exactly like characters from Dad's Army. Then 'Mainwaring' asks if he can help Gary, prompting him to start singing "Who do you think you are kidding Mr. Hitler!"
  • One of the later seasons had an episode where Gary had to stop Noel Coward from writing a play about him and Phoebe. Gary attempted to give Noel a better idea for a play, one about 'terrorists who take over an office building'. Noel is unconvinced...until Gary suggests a play about 'terrorists who take over an office building...who have really bad manners'
