* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: The Pirate sketch, as it shows a crew of pirates holding some rather enlightened ideas. Though the introduction of [[PirateGirl The Captain]] at the end might justify/subvert this; her entire (male) crew is so terrified of her that it makes you wonder whether they really held their feminist views or simply pretended to out of fear.

[[FridgeBrilliance But of course,]] there [[GeniusBonus really were]] a number of powerful, feared female pirate captains, so it may be TruthInTelevision.

* BlackBestFriend: Discussed in one of the standup bits. Key and Peele apparently try out for this role a lot because neither of them make a convincing ScaryBlackMan, and thus end up with a set of oft-rehashed lines like "[[WillSmith Aw HELL naw!]]" and "[[ShipperOnDeck Y'all two clearly like each other!]]"

* PoorCommunicationKills: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naleynXS7yo Text Message Confusion]] sketch shows a text message exchange that is interpreted as insulting by one side and casual on the other, which culminates in the former interpreting a meet-up at a bar as a challenge to a fight. [[spoiler: Subverted at the end, when the aggressor confronts his friend at the bar, he is touched when the latter orders a drink for him and no one is brutally murdered that night]]

* SecretTestOfCharacter: In "Little Homie", a parole officer named Daniel Tate is communicating to a parolee named Clive through a puppet named Little Homie. Little Homie appears to have grown sentient, encouraging him to go back into crime, tossing him a weed cigarette (when Clive questions Tate, Tate says "I want you to clean up your act, but [[WhamLine you're not talking to me right now, you're talking to Little Homie]]) and threatening to shoot Tate if he doesn't smoke it. [[spoiler: When Clive calls his bluff, Little Homie shoots Tate, who collapses to the ground. Little Homie cleans off his fingerprints, tosses Clive the gun so his fingerprints get on it instead and asks him to be "in together on this" (probably to keep quiet, help get rid of the body and escape). At that point, Tate climbs up, informs Clive he failed the test and sends him back to prison.]]
