* TheAce: Monkfish, who has been a tough, uncompromising detective, a tough, uncompromising doctor and a tough, uncompromising vet amongst other things. He even got an adaptation on Channel 9 called "MOOOOOOOOOOOONKFISSSSSCH!".

--> '''Swiss Toni:''' Going to the brink of death and back, in a nine car pile-up on a dual carriageway, is very much like making love to a beautiful woman. First of all, brace yourself, hold on tight - particularly if it's a rear-ender. Pray you make contact with her twin airbags as soon as possible.

* ThatSyncingFeeling: When Arthur Atkinson appears in a 1950s film (which Tommy Cockles explains as a decade when films were interrupted by 'pointless song and dance numbers that added nothing to the story.'), Tommy Cockles explains that, as Arthur couldn't sing, he was made to mime to a popular singer at the time. Cue Arthur miming horrendously to a voice that sounds nothing like his own, and tap-dancing on the grass.

* BerserkButton: Johnny Nice Painter is a perfectly harmless man painting watercolours (and apparently narrating them for a tv show) right up to the moment he happens to mention the colour black. Then he quickly [[MadArtist sinks into depressive darkness]] leading to insane ranting and smashing things.

* MoodDissonance: The "Rowley Birkin QC" monologues are generally unintelligible but very funny anecdotes. One, however, seems to be about a woman he was in love with during WW2, and who apparently died. The whole scene is melancholy, and the final line "I held her in my arms... (long pause)... I'm afraid I was very drunk." is unutterably sad.
