* BadLiar: Maggie. The only time she's half convincing is when she tries to spare Darren's feelings when he's dismissed by an increasingly [[TookALevelInJerkass cold and hostile]] Andy.


Added DiffLines:

* IdiotBall: Every single time Andy enlists Maggie with a scheme to bolster his image in a social situation, she [[NoSocialSkills fails miserably at keeping up the charade]] and embarrasses him to the core. He is fully aware of how bad she is at this, frequently comments on her social ineptitude, and suffers at length because of it. Now granted, she is his OnlyFriend, but he's clearly [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption sabotaging himself]] every time he ropes her in.

* BrokenPedestal: Implied to be the case for Maggy towards Orlando Bloom. She has a huge poster on her apartment wall of him in the first season, but is thoroughly unimpressed by his crass personality when she meets him off-camera and rejects his advances.

** The ''Series/DoctorWho'' parody in the Christmas Special bears more than a passing resemblance to 1984's "The Twin Dilemma," which is widely regarded as the worst-ever ''Doctor Who'' story. Stephen Merchant has hinted that this wasn't just a co-incidence.
