* StiffUpperLip: Michael Palin attempts to keep one as much as possible, whatever the obstacles that he faces. He does slip up on occasion (when his ship from Suez to Jeddah gets canceled in "80 Days," for instance)
*** Additionally, vast improvements have been made in rail connections and speed in Europe and Asia since the series was made.

* ThrowItIn: ''Around the World in Eighty Days'' was supposed to be six episodes. Palin and his crew got so much material out of his dhow journey from Dubai to India that they built a whole extra episode out of it.

* TechnologyMarchesOn
** Works for and against Palin in ''80 Days''
** Email and the Internet would have made some of Palin's travel problems, like his difficulties finding a way from Suez to India, a lot easier.
** On the other hand, Palin notes that air travel has made passenger trains and boats obsolete in many parts of the world, meaning that in some places, he has fewer travel options than Fogg did. For his ride across the Pacific, Palin has to hitch a ride on a freighter, because there are no cross-Pacific passenger ships any more.
** On the other other hand, that freighter Palin hitched a ride on was quite a bit faster than Fogg's passenger ship and allowed him to make up all his lost time. And he was able to go through China by train, which Fogg couldn't do.

* NiceGuy: He loathes the title, considering it personally and creatively patronizing... but by everyone else's accounts it's entirely accurate. The other Pythons consider him the most easy-going and mild-mannered of their number; in fact, Monty Python as we know it came about lsrgely because John Cleese enjoyed working with Palin so much that he lobbied for Palin's group (the rest of the Pythons) to join him and Graham Chapman at the BBC. Of course, this makes the times when he gets angry and vicious (such as in ''Brazil'' or ''A Fish Called Wanda'') even more jarring. Or, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fx6w6cCWHHc when you compare him to Judas]], although in that instance it was more a case of TranquilFury meets DeadpanSnarker meets BewareTheNiceOnes.
