* EvenEvilHasStandards: In the BBC version, this trope is averted when several of the other, more sanctimonious guests try to chew out Lombard for ''his'' crime, (because he flat out admits it's all true almost immediately) as he points out (quite accurately) that they're all hypocrites. It is played straight however when just about everybody in the room is horrified that Anthony Marston thinks running down two children was bad luck for ''[[ItsAllAboutMe him]]'' because he got his license taken away. For '''six months.''' Hell, even Lombard gets quiet.
