* LastSecondWordSwap: While stranded in a lifeboat on Loch Ness, CPO Pertwee attempts to keep everyone's spirits up by singing a (presumably) BawdySong, only to be forced into a last second word swap by a threatening interjection from Commander Murray.

** A recurring oriental/FuManchu villain. Funnily enough, The Master was played by Jon Pertwee, who would star in [[Series/DoctorWho another show]] with an archvillain called "The Master"...

* RightThroughTheWall: When Commander Murray and his wife are sharing a house with her parents, she refuses to have sex because the bed squeaks and her parents will hear them. Murray's frustration levels are not helped when he puts his back out attempting to fix the bed, and his crew assume he put it out indulging in a different bedroom activity.

*** Burwasher, after long rambling external dialogue, 'good morning!' And then after more of the same '... how d'you do?', at which point someone will say 'can we dispense with the formalities sir?'. Also, 'hullo! Hullo, hullo. Hullo?' Whenever startled by new information.

* HonestJohnsDealership: CPO Pertwee can sell anything from a can of beans to a battleship. Often without the previous owner knowing. Would have had a minor CrowningMomentOfAwesome by requisitioning all the Royal Navy's higher-class chairs to resell -- if Povey hadn't caught on.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Number One was a frequent dealer of these. It was a RunningGag that he'd laugh at his own joke, and in everyone else there'd be an awkward silence.

* UsefulNotes/{{Wales}}: The homeland of Goldstein, who joined the Royal Navy to work his passage to Swansea. In one episode, Goldstein is accidentally promoted to Admiral. His first official act is to take the ship to Wales to show off to his family and friends -- at least till Pertwee and Murray tire of parading around Swansea and let slip that the ship runs on oil burners, not coal burners. [[FelonyMisdemeanor His fiercely proud-of-the-coal-industry Welsh family nearly disowns him]].

* ZanyScheme: Almost every episode involved either; a Get Rich Quick scheme by [[CMOTDibbler CPO Pertwee]], an attempt by [[StupidBoss Commodore Povey]] to drum the crew out of the navy, [[ChivalrousPervert Sub-Lieutenant Phillips]] trying to woo [[SassySecretary WRN. Chasen]], [[OnlySaneMan Cmdr. Murray]] trying to save his career from the lot of them, or [[GambitPileup all at once]].

* ArmedFarces: Set in the UK's Royal Navy, and occasionally featuring other branches of the British military and even foreign services. Leslie Phillips famously claims that his character caused more damage to military equipment than WorldWar2.

Added DiffLines:

* StoppedReadingTooSoon: In one episode Povey's scheme to drum the HMS Troutbridge crew out of the navy falls apart because he only read the front of the orders sheet, there was information on how they could get out of it on the back. Even worse The Admiral admits that he makes the same mistake constantly, and only noticed some important stuff when he turned some paper over to use as a drink's coaster.

** Then, there was [[TalkingToHimself CPO Pertwee]] doing a spot-on impression of Weatherby singing in the tub. After attempting to get, repeatedly through the first few words of 'I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles," he ends with "oh, to Hell with it -- I've lost the soap!"
