* {{Deconstruction}}: Carrey gives the exact same performance that he always did at the time, except this one shows just how weird and creepy regular people would find it.

*LeaningOnTheFourthWall: In addition to referencing the climax's similarity to ''Film/GoldenEye'' (see MadeOfIron, below), Chip has the odd habit of humming musical scores as if he were in a movie, illustrating his loose grip on reality. The score in the background likes to go along with it.
-->'''Chip''': You know what sucks about real life? There's no danger music! Dada da dum...

'''''The Cable Guy''''' is a BlackComedy film starring JimCarrey, directed by Creator/BenStiller.

After his girlfriend flips out and gives him the boot, Steven Kovacs (MatthewBroderick) gets the very last thing he needed to fill the new void: an incredibly bizarre cable installer named Chip (Jim Carrey) who latches on and insinuates himself into Steven's life. To his credit, Chip does lots of favors for Steven, up to and including helping him win back his girlfriend Robin Harris (Leslie Mann), but his odd, off-putting and sometimes illicit behavior (including buying Steven a prostitute and then making it up to him by beating the crap out of Robin's date, and later getting him an overelaborate entertainment system via "connections"... which ends up being stolen) proves too much to take and Steven eventually has to tell him to take a hike. Things quickly turn sour after that, and Steven finds out just how weird his "pal" really is when Chip begins stalking him and pulling various strings to try and ruin his life.
