* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Played for laughs; every so often it's suggested that Richmond might actually have become some kind of supernatural vampire-like being through the power of sheer goth-induced moping.

** Moss is utterly convinced that the correct pronunciation of tapas is "tape-ass", no matter what anyone else says - and nobody else says it right either!

** One of Roy's girlfriends told him how her parents were killed in a fire. At a Seaparks, while watching a sea lion show, in an outdoor amphitheatre with at least a dozen exits. At this point she refuses to go into further detail, and Roy spends most of the episode trying to figure out how it was possible. Eventually he does, after building a scale model of the amphitheatre - but before he can tell anyone, the model burns out of control, putting him in hospital, and he likewise refuses to talk about it.

* ThePeterPrinciple: Jen is the poster girl for this. Not only is she not competent for the job she ''does'' have (she became head of IT by lying about her nonexistent computer skills) but she keeps applying for jobs she is even ''less'' capable of handling. HilarityEnsues of course!

* ResetButton: If it wasn't for Richmond's later appearances, "The Red Door" would be a textbook example. Jen finds Richmond in a room off the IT office, to where he had been banished from the office mainstream a few years before. She encourages him to rejoin the office; Reynholm reinstates him, then capriciously changes his mind and sends him back to IT. Moss has taken Jen's suggestion to clean the basement's window and let the daylight in, which makes Richmond retreat back behind the red door.

** Roy loses his T-shirt because of Moss's trick (he spilled coffee on it), and he had to lend his jacket to a lady who was cold (emergency situation). He ended up running crazily in the premises. Not exactly eye candy, but it's not FanDisservice either.

* SnubByOmission: An OverlyLongGag during a company meeting where the Boss goes around thanking all the departments, such as the lawyers and the accountants and even the janitors, but not our titular heroes. Upon each announcement, he describes something that could potentially describe IT, only for it to be another department.

Today, I have a business empire the like of which the world has never seen the like of which. I hope it doesn't sound arrogant when I say, that I am the greatest man in the world."

** In the Season three episode "The Speech", Roy and Moss trick Jen into thinking the internet is a black box with a light on it. The prank works so spectacularly well that nine episodes later, in the season five special, she brings out "The internet" again.. Roy realizes out loud that they never told her it was a joke.

Also added "The Internet" to continuity nod because it qualifies as both.
** There is at least one epic, multi-episode brick joke. In the Season three episode "The Speech", Roy and Moss trick Jen into thinking the internet is a black box with a light on it. The prank works so spectacularly well that nine episodes later, in the season five special, she brings out "The internet" as a way to remove embarrassing viral videos. Roy realizes out loud that they never told her it was a joke.

Fail O Suckyname is no longer a trope. Wicks are being disambiguated.
* FailOSuckyName: Peter File. Say it out loud (in an English accent... the fact that the joke doesn't work in an American one is lampshaded by Moss, who suggests he move there).

* UnfortunateNames: "Yes, I'm a [[PaedoHunt Peter File]]!"
