* GladIThoughtOfIt: Inverted when Moss suggests helping Jen out of a situation where she needed to speak Italian (in spite of not doing so). He came up with a plan for using some translation software and suggested it to Jen. Before he'd even finished explaining the idea, he concluded it was a stupid idea and wouldn't work. Then Jen just spelled out the idea back to him and Moss realised it would work and congratulated her for coming up with it.

** Jen also intentionally ruins Roy's chance to do a nude calendar with the girls on the seventh floor (which had been their suggestion, not his). Aside from ruining one of the few ThrowTheDogABone moments for [[ButtMonkey Roy]], her actions took a virtually guaranteed successful way to raise money for charity and pretty much doomed it to failure. Douglas then informs her that the success of the calendar is now entirely her responsibility.

She then [[LampshadeHanging notices them]] and comments on what they've ordered.

** Moss also pronounces tapas as "tape-ass" and is very insistent that his pronunciation is the right one. Easy to miss is that Jen isn't actually saying it right either when she corrects him.

Easy The joke might seem like HypocriticalHumor to miss is Americans and Spanish speakers given that Jen isn't actually saying Jen's correction may sound equally wrong to them, but it's the standard British pronunciation[[labelnote:*]]Discussions about whether that's "correct" or "authentic" don't belong here; the point is the creators almost certainly didn't intend it right either when she corrects him.as a joke.[[/labelnote]]

** Lampshaded in the text epilogue to "Bad Boys"; "In all the excitement, Reynholm forgot to fire Jen and the whole Ben Genderson thing never really went anywhere."

** Played straight, as Linehan's other series all feature three main characters. Averted, as it's the first of his Creator/Channel4 sitcoms to make it to a fourth series. But it's his third sitcom for the channel! My head hurts.

* BizarroEpisode: "Reyholm vs Reynholm", which (besides the special) was also the final episode of the series. Douglas' wife returns, but her character is bizarre and she does very little besides start the court case. Jen is relegated to Douglas' legal lackey for no good reason, Roy and Moss are DemotedToExtra, Richmond makes a brief appearance as a totally different person and is gone just as fast, and there's only one short scene in the IT office. The episode also ends very abruptly.
