* CrazyCatLady: Lorna's father was already this, but when Cuckoo claims that his cat may be the reincarnation of his dead wife, it gets even sillier.



* DatingWhatDaddyHates: Or in this case, marrying.



* {{Foil}}: Ken and Cuckoo are polar opposites



* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Cuckoo claims to have it all figured out, yet his plans to spread his wisdom amount to selling jacket potatoes and assuming his preaching won't alienate customers. His attempts at securing a loan also show that he's hopeless with business management.



* SmallNameBigEgo: Connie describes herself as a qualified psychiatrist despite only having done a two day course.

Series 2 introduced two major cast changes: Tamla Kari (Rachel) was replaced by Esther Smith, and Cuckoo was written out because of Andy Samberg's other work commitments and replaced by his long lost son Dale (TaylorLautner). It also introduced a new regular character in the form of Rachel's new boyfriend Ben (Matt Lacey); a safe and boring solicitor who works with Ken and Rachel.
