* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: When Jane and Oliver finally open up to each other and Jane suggests that they watch some porn, while he's looking for something to watch she announces that she'll go and make tea, and leaves the room. When she returns, she stands in the doorway completely naked, and he is temporarily robbed of the power of comprehension. She talks to him casually for a couple of minutes, inviting him to her flat the following day, and when he's recovered his wits she smirks at him and saunters out to get dressed and go home, saying "You didn't have any nice tea anyway."

* GenreSavvy: Steve is already so familiar with Jeff that in the first episode, the first time the audience ever hears a 'Jeffism', he's appropriately wary of them:
--> ''Is this going to be something disgusting? Am I going to be embarrassed to be your friend?''
