Added DiffLines:

* WorldsMostBeautifulWoman: In one sketch, a groom (Webb) at a wedding reception calls his bride the most beautiful woman in the world. When the LiteralMinded best man (Mitchell) has to give a speech, he objects to that description, and doesn't understand what the audience is upset about.
-->The most beautiful woman in the world? I don't think so, mate. I mean, honestly! ''(audience gasps)'' Iím not being nasty. Itís not nasty to say someone isn't the most beautiful woman in the world. And she looks, you know, fine, good, very presentable, better than ever. Just not... better than everyone. ''(more gasps, the bride starts to cry)'' What? Sorry, Jane, you've not been thinking you're the most beautiful woman in the world, have you? Why would you think that?

* ConspiracyTheories: {{Parodied}} and {{lampshaded}} in series 4, with the Conspiracy Theory sketches, in which a shady government cabal (different governments, though) plots to:
** Fake the moon landing ([[spoiler: Since they'd already have to build the massive rocket in order to fool anyone and it's more expensive catering for a film crew than for astronauts, they decide to just go to the moon and fake the footage there.]])
** Assassinate Princess Diana in a complex manner involving a lot of ContrivedCoincidence and GambitRoulette ([[spoiler: which happens by accident while they're still planning it]])
** Cover up the existence of aliens ([[spoiler: they're unable to come up with a reason ''why'' they should do so, and conclude that it's 'just what governments are supposed to do'.]])

* GenreSavvy: The two Nazi goons who realize that their SkeletonMotif isn't ''quite'' right for [[ObviouslyEvil the heroes of a story.]]]] The stage version adds one of them arguing that the pattern of German success in the war thus far doesn't fit with the heroes in any movie he's seen, but it ''does'' fit plenty of villains.

* ShipperOnDeck: A (sort-of) meta example; the producer and new writer in the ''Preston and Loader'' sketch are determined to basically turn what was previously a detective show into their personal gay {{slash}} FanFiction by having Preston and Loader make out with each other in every scene. One of the actors objects to this, but it turns out that the other actor also ships the two.
