* The U.S. version had some funny moments as well, particularly the episode "Dressed", where Jane is invited over to a guy's apartment and thinks it will just be the two of them, so she wears a trenchcoat with ''nothing'' underneath, and when it turns out all his friends are there, Jane has to make excuses to keep her coat on, [[ItMakesSenseInContext she desperately tries to get a little girl to steal a dress for her by giving her the coat]] which fails miserably and hilariously, then Jane finally gives up and casually walks in front of the guy and his friends while completely naked, puts on another coat and leaves, her complete lack of embarassment and the guy's reactions is what really sells it.
** Note that this is scene-for-scene lifted from the original.

The British classic ''{{Coupling}}'' has this...masterclass...in how to construct a joke.

Added DiffLines:

** The moment when the episode rewinds and switches the language and Jeff talks in made-up Italian-ish is utterly brilliant.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0dV0_qOliQ This conversation]]:

to:

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0dV0_qOliQ This conversation]]:The scene where Julia tells the girls about an encounter she had in the stationary cupboard with Jeff. We see a flashback that leads to a very awkward kiss, with Jeff rather cruelly criticising her breath, her teeth, etc. Julia then clarifies that it was an ImagineSpot, explaining why [[AlmostKiss she didn't kiss him]]. We then cut to Jeff's own ImagineSpot of what he thought would happen, which we just ''know'' will be more extreme. And it doesn't disappoint:



** The buildup to this makes it even better. First we see Julia, the woman he almost kissed, tell the girls why she didn't kiss him with a fake flashback as to what ''she'' imagined would happen (subtly setting her up as Jeff's perfect match, of course). Since the guy in question was Jeff, we just ''know'' his will be more extreme. And it doesn't disappoint.

** Jeff's ability to blurt out the most incredible craziness and shock his [very] open friends are simply amazing. His reveal with Steve at the Sperm clinic was gut busting, not to mention his explanation of suffering 'lower whiplash'. Or the scene immediately following the captain subtext scene where his subconscious spoke only in one- or two-word exclamations like "Cleft. Gusset. Bicycle saddle", only to keep doing it after the 'auto-translate' was disabled. Or unintentionally stripping totally nude while dancing in front of all his colleagues and his mother! Or:

* Another classic Jeff tangent: During a discussion about nudity on television, he reveals that the connotation between television and nudity when he was a child led to him becoming aroused whenever it was switched on ("Even if it was just the news or [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor Who]]") and that one afternoon he "lost control" in front of his whole family and "completely wrote off the television".
-->'''Steve:''' Sorry... so you're telling us that, as a young child and despite the obvious electrical dangers, you sexually assaulted the television set. During ''Songs Of Praise''?
-->'''Patrick:''' Is... is that what happened to your hair?

* Steve hilariously trying to explain the complex plot of "[[AllMenArePerverts Lesbian Spank Inferno]]", culminating in a massive rant detailing how the entire history of human achievement was all in order for men to get a better look at women's bottoms.
