* AsideGlance: An amusing meta-example in the Stone Age ''Series/DragonsDen'' skit, when the inventor pitching the concept of 'beer' seems suddenly to [[MediumAwareness remember what show he's really on]]: "It grown-up drink. [[DontTryThisAtHome Not for children]]."

Added DiffLines:

* EagleLand: A downplayed example as the U.S.A. doesn’t come up often but the actual heading for the segments is “Awesome U.S.A.” and the characters are often those viewed as cool or heroic, like the Pilgrim Fathers, cowboys, WWI and II soldiers, and civil rights fighters.

* BreadEggsMilkSquick: Things [[PsychopathicManchild Elagabalus]] might let you "win" in "Romo Lottery Millions" range from the useful (a house, a slave, actual money) to the useless (a dead dog) to those that would ''actively harm you'' ([[BeeAfraid a box full of bees]]).

* IWantMyMommy: Invoked by a young student warrior in the "Spartan High School Musical" song, and by a fully-grown Spartan warrior in a sketch involving preparation for [[ThreeHundred the battle of Thermopylae]]. Made even funnier when you realise that, as per what the show has already established, 'mommy' would most likely have just clocked them upside the ear and thrown them right back out into the battle.

* AwesomeEgo: Many characters are portrayed with massively over-the-top egos, but some of them are very likable, especially William Shakespeare (who's justifiably proud of his impact on English literature and language) and Charles II (who boasts of how much all the people love him and how he brought back fun to England.)

** One of the defining characteristics of George IV. During ''Georgian Come Dine With Me'', he is the only able to eat the curry. He then looks at everyone else's unfinished portions and asks "Are you going to eat that?".
