* FunnyBackgroundEvent: The RunningGag of Nick being served his drink at Rory's headquarters concludes with this. At the third go, the henchmen stops just behind Nick, glass in hand. Registers that Rory is ''this'' close to going completely AxCrazy at Nick, but really, anyone will do at this point. Very slowly, very carefully, backs out of frame, glass still in hand.

* EvilCounterpart: Dog's gang to Ed's. They live right next door to each other and are both engaged in low scale criminal activities, but Ed's friends are [[NeighbourhoodFriendlyGangsters only a little worse]] than anyone in OnlyFoolsAndHorses when it comes to street hustling, whereas Dog is a disgusting brute of a man.

* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: A massive stinker that is often overlooked is during the gambling scene. To explain, Eddie has £250,000 to begin with. He does fairly well, but foolishly attempts to out bluff Hatchet Harry. When Harry makes a massive raise that he can make, but Eddie can't, Eddie says he can't match that. So as per the rules, he'll go all in and then they'll show their cards. So Harry explains, in a rather polite "I can't be busted for threatening you" way, that if Eddie does not continue, he will be killed. And to ensure that Eddie can continue, he will give Eddie the money. Which Eddie will have to pay back when he loses.

* TooDumbToLive: Agreeing to a high stakes poker game against a fearsome London gangster is bad enough, but Ed then tries to out-bluff Harry with a weak hand (and borrows £500,000 from him just to do it). And just for good measure, he and his mates then go and rob some murderous thieves.
