Drink twice whenever...
- Someone opens the door to leave just as somebody else is about to knock.
- Comedy music kicks in.
- You spot an actor's publicity photo being used (e.g. framed in one of the houses, at a character's funeral, etc.).
- A character gets a txt message on their phone, clicks "Read" and a voice-mail message plays.
- The writers make the most of the hospital set being up by having half the cast injured or falling ill in unrelated incidents within one week.
- A past character is mentioned (drink again if it's someone other than Mal or Billy Kennedy).
- A recurring guest returns (e.g. Tim Collins, Gino, Dr Olenski, Dr Levi, etc.).
- A male cast member is shirtless or a female cast member is in a bikini (drink double if it's for no logical reason).
- There's a flashback or fantasy sequence.
- You spot a backdrop painting in studio scenes.

- An excuse is made for a character being absent as the actor's not in the episode (e.g. "Zeke's out walking Audrey" or "tell Callum to stop sulking in his bedroom").
- A character is accidentally spoken to with the actor's name.
- Karl is away "visiting baby Holly in London" / "on a training course" / "doing panto".
- An actor's hair changes style and/or length between interior and exterior shots within the same scene.
- A stock exterior shot is used that's out of date (e.g. the shot of Lassiter's from five years ago with the old sign up).
- You recognise a former cast-member of Prisoner Cell Block H, Round The Twist, Home And Away or The Sleepover Club.
- Anyone sings (drink double if this sequence goes on uncomfortably long).
- You spot an extra over-acting in the background in an attempt to get discovered.
- You spot an extra "on loop" walking back and forth, or coming in the door of Scarlet Bar or the General Store twice within the same scene.
- You spot an extra grinning manically who's clearly a competition winner.
- An actor awkwardly holds their post-shock-revelation face while waiting for the end theme tune to kick in.
- There's a shameless racial stereotype (e.g. Liljana Bishop saying "There's an old Serbian saying...", Connor playing a tin whistle, comedy Italian music, Mishka's descriptions of Russia as if it's still the 1920s, Carmella's mafia family, etc.).
- Lou does his Sid James laugh.
- Susan and Karl allude to any form of sexual activity.
- Karl is tight about money.
- Paul gets kidnapped and/or nearly dies.
- Lawyer Toadie and Stupid Joker Toadie are both in the same episode.
- The writers attempt to justify a ridiculously unlikely medical situation by having Karl Kennedy say "it's not uncommon for...".
- Zeke does his sad emo frown.
- Paul Robinson does his Thunderbirds-esque wobbly head thing when a female is trying to talk him round.

Drink three times whenever...
- Someone gets amnesia or goes into a coma - drink double if they wake up from a coma with amnesia.
- A character returns, played by a different actor.
- An actor returns, playing a different character.

- A character is told they'll never be able to have children.
- A character who has been told they'll never be able to have children gets pregnant.
