** Also subverts it, in that Dave asks his wife whether, were anything to happen to him, she might take up with a black feller. She answers that she "might do, yeah". He immediately goes into a funk, because everyone knows they have "great bodies and that"[[note]]some do, yeah[[/note]]. However, he really is talking about their physiques, and not their equipment, because he's very insecure about his appearance.

Either way it's rooted in his own insecurity about his appearance.

* TheUnreveal: Thanks to clever lighting, the Broadway version manages to have the guys completely naked, and yet we can't see a thing. The film, of course, has the luxury of showing them from behind.

(Some viewers were still annoyed that, what with full-frontal nudity being one of the major plot points, we didn't get to see them from the front.)

* TakeThat:
** Gerald insults Gaz and Dave on their appearance by saying, "[[FatAndSkinny He's fat, you're thin,]] and you're both fucking ugly."
** Dave also insults everyone by envisaging the worst-case scenario which could occur during their act, "What if, next Friday, 400 women turn round and say, 'He's too fat, he's too old, and he is a pigeon chested little tosser!'" and goes on to say that Lomper is "basically a bastard."
*** Rendered in the musical with the women of their imagination singing over and over "He's fat, he's old, he's skinny, he's bald, he's short, he's got pimples on his ass!"
**** A double TakeThat there, as the last two are both toward Malcolm (Lomper). I guess Ethan (Guy) doesn't have the confidence issues.
