** The episode "Bunk Off" was a deconstruction of ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'', showing how foolhardy it is to skip school with your mates when your parents weren't born yesterday and your teachers aren't complete buffoons.



* TheDitz: Neil, although it's less of a disadvantage than you might think. His chosen A-levels (Physical Education and Technical Design) also speak volumes about his intellectual capacity.

** Will is this. He's shorter than the other boys and has a fuse to match.



* OneSteveLimit: Averted with Ben, the major antagonist of the second movie, and Benji, Jay's dog. There's also Chris Groves (Jay's year 13 friend who tells him about the "nympho" in Swanage) Chris Warton (A guy Jay claims got his head stuck in the recycling bin and arse-raped 18 times),Christ D'Amato, Carli's younger brother, and Chris Yates, a person ejected from Carli's fasion show for having "A really hairy back". (Athough, knowing Jay, the existence of the first two isn't guaranteed...)

** Again when he tries to have sex with Tara. Jay tells Simon to have a quick wank and he'll recharge during the act, but given that this advice came from Jay...

** This is discussed in the commentary - the incident is based on the real experience of one of the writers, who accidentally ingested marijuana and experienced random arm motions, feeling like everything was flat, thinking he was trapped in a bubble, etc.

* BelievingTheirOwnLies: During the season 2 trip to Swanage, Jay goes off looking for a fictional "sexy housewife" who apparently gives out blowjobs to sixth form students. He allegedly heard about her from his friend in year 13, and the way he actively searches for her leads us to believe that it's not his own brand of bullshit, and that he did indeed hear it from somewhere.
** However it can also be interpreted as Jay merely trying to back up his claim of a real sexy housewife by pretending to search for one.

** Which makes [[FridgeLogic Simon helping Carli out with her Geography to be somewhat questionable]]. He didn't actually take Geography though, he was doing last minute revision for a subject he wasn't even taking on the slim chance he might get some, and in case that failed, well, he could always retake next year.
*** TruthInTelevision. There's a lot more to studying A level Geography than just being a walking atlas.
*** Also, he was pretty much just there to ask her questions from her textbook.



* DoggedNiceGuy: Simon is the most abhorrent example, volunteering to assist Carli with her A-level Geography revision mere days before his exams, despite the fact he doesn't study it.
** Simon spends all three series with a hopeless and scary crush on her - even when he lands a date with pretty Irish lass Lauren, he decides to toss her onto the backburner as soon as Carli decides she wants to hang out with him.

* FanService: Carli and Charlotte's choice of outfits, most notably in ''The Fashion Show'', which counterbalances Simon's accident.

** Jay is also right that Alistair is an asshole, despite nearly everyone else giving him sympathy due to his disease and wheelchair-bound state. Will immediately discovers that Jay is right.
