* DrivenToSuicide: From "Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time": Being in a nearly empty grocery store at 11:00 AM on a Tuesday, looking at the Lean Cuisines? Perfectly fine. Being in a nearly empty grocery store at 11:00 AM on a Tuesday, looking at the Lean Cuisines, as Music/{{Toto}}'s "Africa" starts playing over the speakers? He'd have put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger if he had one, without even feeling any despair or sadness. Also, he feels that the cops would understand ''exactly'' why he did it, in a "[[SeenItAll oh yeah, we see this all the time]]" kind of way.

** In college he took a class called "Physics for Poets," where the head of the science department struggled through his hatred of the liberal arts students to get them the minimum science credits. Patton angrily correcting a ''Star Trek'' based word problem on the final exam apparently pushed him over the edge: "I'm going home and slitting my wrists, because I don't want to be on the same planet with you people anymore."

* HypocrisyNod: During his second bit about the KFC Famous Bowls, he acknowledges that his setup - talking about how "for some reason" people connect him to the product - was quite stupid as he'd spent ''ten minutes'' talking about the product the last time around.

* GermanicDepressives: Patton claims that this stereotype is true, based on the people he met during his own trip to Germany. He theorizes that Germans act this way on purpose, because they feel like if they don't stamp out all attempts at humour as quickly as possible, ''someone'' will eventually break out the AllGermansAreNazis jokes.
-->'''Patton:''' ''[seeing a nightclub with red spotlights shining on the outside walls]'' Oh look, [[LaserSight a nightclub for snipers]].\\
'''German Cab Driver:''' No, zose are not snipers, zey are just red spotlights shining on ze valls. ''[{{beat}}]'' But even if zey ''vere'' snipers, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial I guarantee zat zey vould not be pointed at any Jews]]!

** In his ''Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time'' special, he recounts being hired by a casino to do a gig for an insane amount of money, and didn't manage to tell a single joke in his entire half-hour set because the people in the audience were so incredibly drunk that they spent the whole time yelling out the names of TV shows and movies that they recognized him from. When his thirty minutes were up, he got a roaring standing ovation. According to him, he had never made an audience happier than he did at that show.

* MoralGuardians: Not that he is one; he just hates them. He even has a sequence about how replacing 'adult' words with euphemisms results in a sentence even creepier than the original [[note]]possibly because using language suitable for children implies that you're speaking ''to'' a child.[[/note]] (see it under Narrative Profanity Filer, below).
