* PetTheDog: While they're generally merciless against people they disagree with, they're far more polite and easygoing on [[PapaWolf Mark Klaas]] in ''Death Penalty'', since he supports it because his daughter a raped and killed.

* PinkMeansFeminine: The gun control episode included the thought experiment of issuing all women a bright-pink gun. Partly because "tough guys" would be too embarrassed to steal them, but mostly because Penn thinks punk guns are sexy.

* SpecialGuest: In the "Apocalypse 2012" episode, while discussing the idea that a brown dwarf star will destroy the world in 2012, they cut to Penn & Teller going up to GaryColeman and asking if [[VisualPun he's planning on destroying the world in 2012]]. He says yes.

** Three fans of ''LeaveItToBeaver'' met Ken Osmond (who played Eddie Haskell on the show) and told him how much they preferred the world as seen in the 1950s sitcom to the modern world. Notably the three fans were not born when the show was made. Haskell himself was far more critical of the 1950s than they were and thought they were idealising a world that never existed.

* MundaneSolution: In the "Martial Arts" episode the pair point out that it's cheaper to just give a mugger your money than to go through all the time, expense, and risk of injury of learning and using fighting skills. If that's not a viable option, they suggest you JustShootHim, since the legal repercussions are roughly the same as beating a mugger into submission and it's much safer for you.

* ExpensiveGlassOfCrap: Basically the plot to the bottled water and the "Best" episodes. In most cases, because the person indulging thinks they're getting the best, whatever they're eating will be predisposed as tasting better.

Notably, one of the guests who actually was a food expert ''did'' obviously notice and was trying to be polite in front of his host (who was in on it).

* GayAesop: Part of the Family Values and Boy Scouts episodes and the lesbian segment of the "Nukes, Hybrids, and Lesbians" episode.

to:

* GayAesop: Part The "Family Values" episode is pro-gay marriage, picking apart every anti-gay marriage argument that the hosts can find while also saying that the concept of the Family Values and "American family" is changing. Also, the "Boy Scouts" episode features a segment where Penn decries the practice of the Boy Scouts episodes and firing gay troop leaders or preventing gay boys from joining[[note]]The Boy Scouts have since reversed their positions on both of these issues, but the lesbian segment of damage to their reputation has already been done[[/note]]. Finally, the "Nukes, Hybrids, and Lesbians" episode.episode has a pair of lesbians going on a date in a rented hybrid vehicle, pausing the date from time to time to show how impractical the cars are.

* ShownTheirWork: Pretty much everything is heavily researched so that the show actually has proof to back up it's claims, rather than just making things up to make the topics featured look bad.

** Out-of-universe, Penn Jillette has stated that their least favorite show is the "Good Ol' Days" episode, since it was nothing more than them bashing people that were passionate about different things.

->''You'll notice more obscenity than we usually use. That's not just because it's on Creator/{{Showtime}}, and we want to get some attention. It's also a legal matter. If one calls people liars and quacks, one can be sued and lose a lot of one's money. But "motherfuckers" and "assholes" is pretty safe. If we said it was all scams, we could also be in trouble. But BULLSHIT, oddly, is safe. So forgive all the bullshit language. We're trying to talk about the truth without spending the rest of our lives in court because of [[SophisticatedAsHell litigious motherfuckers]]!''

* HypocrisyNod: The most blatant in the "Lawns" episode when, complaining about the pesticides people use and the fact that lawns are unnatural, they recreate TheSummation of the "Organic Farming" episode and show themselves split-screen making opposite statements about pesticides and natural agriculture. They then quickly point out that food is necessary and lawns aren't.
** In another episode, when discussing Gandhi's racist comments about Africans, they point out they were made the same year that ''BirthOfANation'' came out, and caution their American audience about being aware of the racism in their own country's past before criticizing a major public figure in another country.
