** The "every TV show has a behind-the-scenes garden, not just ''Series/BluePeter''" sketches reveal that the only reason that ''Series/TwoPintsOfLagerAndAPacketOfCrisps" avoided cancellation was because it had a beautiful garden that the BBC didn't want to get rid of.

-->'''David:''' I think if people knew how nice the ''Two Pints'' garden was, they wouldn't mind the show at all.\\
'''Robert:''' They'd see it as a necessary evil.

** One of the behind-the-scenes sketches has David and Robert get into an argument about cheese that gets progressively heated, eventually turning into a shouting match. This involves David at one point screaming at Robert "You've got a ''lot of anger! A LOT OF ANGER!!!''"

* ConspiracyTheories: {{Parodied}} and {{lampshaded}} in series 4, with a shady government cabal discussing how to conceal the existance of aliens, fake the moon landings and assassinate Princess Diana. [[spoiler: It turns out that there's no real reason to conceal the existence of aliens, it's easier and cheaper to fly to the moon than it is to fake flying to the moon, and that any assassination involving car crashes and paparazzi would be so improbable that it's more likely to happen by accident.]]

** Fake
the existance of aliens, 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 moon landings and assassinate footage there.]])
** Assassinate
Princess Diana. [[spoiler: It turns out that there's no real reason to conceal 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, it's easier aliens ([[spoiler: they're unable to come up with a reason ''why'' they should do so, and cheaper to fly to the moon than it is to fake flying to the moon, and that any assassination involving car crashes and paparazzi would be so improbable conclude that it's more likely 'just what governments are supposed to happen by accident.]]do'.]])



* ContrivedCoincidence: {{Played for laughs}}. In the Diana Assassination sketch, the agents come up with the plan to get a driver slightly drunk, and hope that he'll both crash, that Diana won't wear a seatbelt, and that she'll die. Just as they're about to put the plan into action, it all just happens by accident.

* {{Jerkass}}: Most of the "behind the scenes" sketches portray Mark Webb as one, like in one instance guilt-tripping David into wearing a shirt that makes him look gay, simply to claim he's not homophobic after making some homophobic remarks some time before, and bluntly dismissing an upset Mitchell's concerns that this would ruin any future attempts at romance.
