** 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.

* 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.
