* HateSink: Chris Finch has '''zero''' redeeming qualities. Following that, Lee is a terrible boyfriend. Tim's pregnant co-worker Ann is also very rude and self-absorbed.
** Neil was apparently meant to be this, but YMMV if he's really that hate-worthy.
** Averted with the warehouse workers in the end. They're pigs, but seeing them tell off an obnoxious pregnant woman makes them almost admirable.

* {{Metaphogotten}}: Done by David. During an excercise on how ''not'' to deal with an irate customer, when acting as the customer he shouts "I think there's been a rape!" and says to always get attention, and when acting as the manager, has the other person say his room number, then states his hotel doesn't go up to that floor and that some complaints will be fake.
