* MistakenForMasturbating: "A Night Out in London" sees Neil thrown out of a nightclub because he is believed to have been masturbating in a urinal. In fact he had been treating a cut on his genitalia. The reason was that he made some moaning sounds which was, of course, due to pain, but this wasn't obvious to the onlookers.



** In "The Camping Trip", a drunken Simon attempts to express his love for Carli by climbing through her bedroom window at 3 in the morning. Unfortunately, he ends up in her kid brother's bedroom. This later leads to a very awkward conversation between Simon and his father about why it is never okay to touch children.

* MistakenForPedophile:
** Jay and Neil force Simon to ask out some girls on the street to Will's party; turns out they're eleven. Cue them calling them Paedos and getting their older brother to beat them up. Actually inverted in the American series in which Jay [[AdaptationalVillainy goes out with a 12 year old; a line even the perverted British Jay would never cross.]]

* TheChewToy: All four of 'em. They're about as unpopular in their school (or anywhere) as the [[Literature/HarryPotter marauders]] were popular.

Added DiffLines:

** They don't take A levels in the US, just their junior and senior year of high school, so the Mr Gilbert {{Expy}} of the american version is no longer Head of Sixth Form but promoted to plain 'ol principal.

Added DiffLines:

** The Show can be viewed as this for the classic GiveGeeksAChance storyline.


Added DiffLines:

* SatelliteCharacter:
** Averted to an extent with Carli, while she seems to be playing the role of SatelliteLoveInterest for Simon as she only seems to figure into the story when he's after her affections, she's given more character depth than most of this trope.
** Rachel largely seemed to be this to Carli as she was only shown silently tagging along Carli in any given episode, though she's given more prominence in "A Night Out in London" when Will [[spoiler: quite mistakenly]] believes she's into him.

* BringMyBrownPants: Will, thanks to stress and overindulgence in energy drinks, suffers explosive diarrhea and shits himself during his final exam.

* CarloadOfCoolKids: The show made a classic sketch out of this phenomenon. The four teenage boys of the title, whilst driving down the street, come to grief after shouting "Bus Wankers!" at a waiting queue - then realize it's vitally important to have an escape route as they grind to a halt in a traffic jam. Thus enabling a very large and aggressive bus wanker to catch up with them and express his displeasure.

* DoesNotLikeMen: Tara's older sister, Sophie, comes across this way, given that she's antagonistic towards every male character she is seen talking to. It's fairly well justified with "The Admiral", "The Commander" and "The Bombardier", since they're a trio of drunken idiots who are constantly disturbing her peace and with Jay, Will and Neil, who have turned up to her house uninvited, especially since Neil pisses in the bed and Jay bursts into her room demanding a threesome. She's hugely disapproving of Simon dating Tara and she had previously warned that Simon would go weird on her.

She's hugely disapproving of Simon dating Tara and she had previously warned that Simon would go weird on her. That said, it doesn't help that six of the seven boys in the house that night caused either a disturbance or a mess, while Will instead ate a Bonsai plant.



* JerkassHasAPoint: Jay refers to Carli as "Little-Miss-Stuck-up-Cocktease" at one point and generally gives Simon abuse about his feelings for her and constantly telling him that she's not interested. He's completely right.
** Will ''was'' rude to Kerry for shallow reasons, but the fact that [[spoiler:her father died recently]] still doesn't obligate him to date her, or even pretend to date her. Not that anyone sympathizes with this, given the extremely bad timing of his assertion.

* JerkassHasAPoint: JerkassHasAPoint:
** In general, any scene where Will loses his temper. He often has a good reason to be annoyed, but by being insensitive or stubborn, he makes sure that others won't sympathise with him. The most notable example is his falling out with Kerry. He ''was'' rude to her for shallow reasons, but the fact that [[spoiler:her father died recently]] still doesn't obligate him to date her, or even pretend to date her.

* PutOnABus: Charlotte who is one year above the main characters and thus [[GraduateFromTheStory graduates sixth form]] after the second series. She [[TheBusCameBack makes a return]] in the first episode of the third series as a guest star at the fashion show, but afterwards she is the only one of the regulars to not appear for the rest of the series nor the movie.
** Most characters except for the four protagonists and possibly their parents (Jay's dad is on the Website/IMDb cast list) seem to be put on the bus for the second movie. At least their actors haven't been confirmed, not even mentioned, to appear in the movie. It makes sense as it has been some time since the boys graduated sixth form, and there is no logical reason as to why they'd keep the contact to people like Big John and Donovan (and Gilbert explicitly ordered the students to not contact him again now that he's not their teacher anymore). Simon also made a point of cutting his ties to Carli at the end of the first movie. Alison and Lisa are absent from the second movie, whilst the other two are DemotedToExtra.
