* FawltyTowersPlot: Todd's blatant and escalating lies drive most of the plot. Among other things he insists: his father died last week, he grew up in Leeds (a city he picked at random based on an an [[TheWho album cover]]), he is allergic to nuts (going so far as faking anaphalactic shock and taking unnecessary epinephrine shots), and he lives in the houses of Parliament (he claims it has apartments now).

* MistakenForPedophile: As in the MistakenForRacist example, this starts with Dave pranking Todd. Todd then proves he's capable of creating the same misunderstanding on his own.
