* TalkativeLoon: Richie.

* TakeYouAsideTalkTakeYouAsideTalk: Richie wishes Eddie to join him in the pub toilets to purchase condoms. Eddie doesn't immediately follow along. So Richie's brilliant idea for alerting him is to shout "Edward Hitler, will you please join me in the lavatory ''this instant''!" - in front of everyone in the pub. Naturally, this has got everyone's attention, so Richie's brilliant excuse to explain his eagerness to see Eddie in the toilets? "We're toilet inspectors."
* TalkativeLoon: Richie.

* HollywoodHomely: RealLife {{Bishonen}} Rik Mayall as the sexually repellant Richie Rich. Every now and then he forgets to pull a face, and wrecks the illusion that Richie is ugly.



* [[IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine I Want You To Meet An Old Housemate Of Mine]] -- Christopher Ryan, who starred alongside Edmondson and Mayall as the suave Mike in ''Series/TheYoungOnes'', turns up every so often as Eddie's decidedly-less-suave mate Dave Hedgehog. If they'd just got Nigel Planer to play Spudgun we'd have had a whole cast reunion.

* VehicleRoofBodyDisposal: In "Gas", Richie and Eddie believe they've managed to kill the Gas inspector when they knocked him out with a frying pan (and hit him a few more times after he hit the floor for good measure). They decide to add an extra entry to his diary ("Left in high spirits, to indulge in my hobby of Bus surfing.") and post his body out of the window onto the roof of a double decker bus.

Richard "Richie" Richard [sic] (Creator/RikMayall) -- a sex-starved, sadistic, physically repugnant loser with delusions of sophistication -- takes out his frustrations at life upon Eddie Elizabeth Hitler (Adrian Edmondson), his boozy, slightly more intelligent, equally perverted and sadistic flatmate. Frequently, this involves [[ComedicSociopathy over-the-top violence]] that would make ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Itchy and Scratchy]]'' wince. Eddie, for his part, is quite willing to respond in kind.

* TimeSkip: Several in a row in "Carnival". Eddie proudly tells Richie that he knows how to hook up the video players he stole that morning. Cut to a week later, and Eddie has nearly finished unwrapping the components. Cut to the following Christmas, and Eddie is ready to open the instruction manual. Cut to Richie returning from his holiday the following summer, and Eddie is ''finally'' ready to fire up the VCR... except it doesn't so much fire up as blow up.

In the end it took them just over a year to get it working.

* IntentionallyAwkwardTitle: Obviously, the creators wanted to force people to talk about seeing ''Bottom'' on the telly. Would have been even worse if the BBC had allowed them to go with their original idea and call it ''Your Bottom''.
