* TwoWordsICantCount: A character tells people their two words: "Keep It Real!". This is of course immediately pointed out that that's ''three'' words, and [[LampshadeHanging it's followed by a debate on whether "it" counts as a word because of how short it is.]]

* DiggingYourselfDeeper: When Ali accuses his opponent of "sucking off a horse" during a televised debate. It turns out that the guy ''actually did just that'' prior to the debate, and that it was a minor scandal in his party. But instead of just telling Ali off for saying something so vulgar during a serious debate, he proceeds to try to talk his way out of it by claiming that [[NotWhatItLooksLike he just accidentally fell on the horse's phallus]], and that it was aroused because it was mating season.

The first movie based on ''Da Ali G'' show, ''Ali G Indahouse'' was later followed by ''Film/{{Borat}}'' and ''Film/{{Bruno}}'', which gave the same big screen treatment to Kazakh journalist [[FunnyForeigner Borat Sagdiyev]] and fashion designer [[CampGay Brüno]]. Interestingly, ''Indahouse'' is Baron Cohen's only film to ditch the show's {{Mockumentary}} format entirely, incorporating a full cast of fictional characters (and quite a few recognizable actors) to prop up Ali's antics.

SachaBaronCohen takes his Ali G character [[TheMovie to the big screen]], though this time the comedy is completely scripted.

Ali G is a middle-class white kid from Staines, a sleepy little suburb, who lives with his grandmother. He spends his time pretending to be a gangsta with a couple other prep-school types from around the neighborhood. He has a running rivalry with the crosstown East Staines Massiv, though all the Staines gangstas are so straight-laced that they won't even exceed the speed limit while street racing. The closest thing Ali G has to a job is volunteering at the town leisure center, teaching kids how to "keep it real" by educating them on gangsta rap cliches. When he learns that the leisure center is about to be closed, he decides to go on a political campaign to keep it open. A nefarious Deputy Prime Minister persuades him to run for MP, and due to a fluke he wins. Ali G gets into a variety of FishOutOfWater shenanigans as his horn-dog, pot-smoking personality clashes with the stuffy politicos. Ultimately Ali G must rally all the suburban gangstas to save Britain from the evil Deputy Prime Minister.
