* {{Sex As Rite-of-passage}}: The main characters all seem to share this view, though their chances of actually being successful at losing their virginity seem far lower than in most plots with this theme. [[spoiler: Except for Neil, who [[KavorkaMan manages to get laid by the end of the series without really trying.]]]] They do all finally seem to manage it in TheMovie, though.

-->'''Simon''': Yeah, it made me really want a Big Mac.* 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.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Jay organises a stripper for Will's birthday, only to realise on the night that the five of them (the foursome plus Patrice) don't have enough to go round to pay for having her. Oops.
* DiggingYourselfDeeper: Will in general, really. He's just incapable of realizing that the moment where he should probably just shut up and let things drop until he cools down has been ''and'' gone. And then even if he does realize it, he's just so stubborn, pompous, humourless and pig-headed about things that he can't back down and admit he's wrong without somehow making things worse.
** Will does this in the garage on work experience; if he'd just kept his mouth shut and not gone on and on about how he was too 'clever' to work there, he probably would've survived the two weeks without being hazed.
** In "Ride/ThorpePark", there's the scene where the boys queue for the front-row seats but (apart from Will) lose out at the last minute. Despite being told to by both his friends and the attendant to shut up and sit down, he continues to loudly complain about the "inconsiderate arseholes" who pushed in front. He then sits down next to them, only to find out that he's just insulted two kids with Down's Syndrome. Oops.
** In "Will's Dilemna", while he started out more or less in the right about the GirlOfTheWeek's overreaction to his fairly gentle rebuff, his righteous indignation leads him to outright verbally abusing her in front of a room full of people, and continuing to play the victim even after he finds out [[spoiler:her dad had just died]].
** Also, Will loudly protests against the reserving of poolside loungers in the movie, and then finds out that one of the owners is disabled. However, rather than backing down, he cringingly points out that the disabled girl doesn't even need a lounger (in contrast to a similar incident in the Ride/ThorpePark episode, where Will offended a special needs bus, but at least showed remorse for his mistake)
* DirtyCoward: Jay to a tee. One of his more dishonourable examples is allowing Simon to get strangled by a ScaryBlackMan for something he did, then laughing at him about it afterwards.

** Will's explosive reaction to a group of people getting to go on the front row of a ride in Ride/ThorpePark without queueing. And then realising that they all have severe Down's Syndrome.
