* ADateWithRosiePalms: Eric does this with the picture of Katie, not long after [[LoveAtFirstSight seeing her for the first time]]... while Tim is in the same bed, trying to sleep...
--> '''Tim''': ''*perturbed*'' Um... You wanna finish that in the bathroom or-
--> '''Eric''': Almost done.
** And later, Eric admits he [[spoiler:does that 5-6 times daily to Katie]].
* ATragedyOfImpulsiveness: The moment they realize the billion dollar movie was a waste, Tim and Eric decide to get trashed, and then, while drunk and high, decide to go into [=PR=] to save a mall to earn a billion dollars. However, near the very end of the film, [[spoiler:Tim and Eric remember they had a billion dollars worth in diamonds left over from the ''Diamond Jim'' movie]], but by this point, [[spoiler:the Schlaaang Corporation is out to kill Tim, Eric, and possibly destroy the S'Wallow Valley Mall]], so [[spoiler:they decide to fight back anyway]].

* ToiletHumour: Shrim. Sounds like Shrimp. It's Tim and Eric, so we can guess that this holistic therapy is going to be something unpleasant. Of course, it reaches new levels when you find that it's [[spoiler: not just poop-related, but a diarrhea bath. Young boys' diarrhea. That they poop on you. Y'know, to heal you, with their purity.]] To ease the potential nausea fuel, [[WordOfGod Eric confirms]] it was made of warm soy milk and oatmeal and was actually quite relaxing to sit in.

After wasting the money on superfluous things (i.e. a $500,000 dollar personal trainer, real diamonds, paying Creator/JohnnyDepp's salary to a Johnny Depp impersonator, etc.) and signing a bad contract, they find themselves owing the corporation the money. After seeing an advertisement with Damian Weebs (Creator/WillFerrell) looking for somebody to run his mall, with the promise they will make a billion dollars, Tim and Eric decide to take the job. While trying to refurbish the mall, they must deal with vagrants (ex. a man-child named Taquito), bizarre stores (ex. Reggie's Used Toilet Paper Discount Warehouse), and a man-eating wolf that stalks the food court.
