Added DiffLines:

* ThrowTheDogABone: Tim passes over the chance to take David's job and suggests that Neil give it to Gareth instead. Gareth [[WhatYouAreInTheDark never learns of this]] and the tone of their relationship never changes, but this moment of kindness says a lot about Tim's character.


Added DiffLines:

* TyrantTakesTheHelm: Averted. Gareth resolves to be a much harsher and more unforgiving boss than David, but despite his somewhat neurotic personality, proves himself to be a rather standard office boss.

Added DiffLines:

* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Gareth certainly thinks so:
--> '''Rowan:''' Gareth, quick trust exercise: what's your ultimate fantasy?
--> '''Gareth:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Two lesbians probably. Sisters. I'm just watching.]]
--> '''Rowan:''' Okay, er, Tim?
--> '''Tim:''' I never thought I'd say this but can I hear more from Gareth?

Added DiffLines:

* NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat: Brent does this a lot. He tells a mildly homophobic joke in front of Neil, only to then realise that Neil might be gay (he isn't, as it turns out) and trips over himself trying to explain why that would be alright. He ends up giving him a lecture about safe gay sex.

* MenAreUncultured: Mainly played straight, as most of the men are boorish and ignorant. Finch sneers at Ricky for being university-educated. The warehouse guys are even worse. When we first see them, they're watching a video of two dogs having sex. Averted by Ricky, who knows a lot about Dostoevsky, and Tim, who claims to like ballet, Proust and Alain Delon.

Lampshaded by Tim:
--> '''Tim:''' I don't know where we're going tonight. [[SarcasmMode Obviously Finchy's a sophisticated guy, and Gareth's a culture vulture, so you know will it be opera, ballet? I don't know. I know the RSC's in town, so er...]] having said that at Chasers, it's Hooch for a pound and Wonderbras-get-in-free night tonight. So I don't know, I don't know who'll win, it's exciting. I'm staying out of it.

** Moments later, Brent then suggests that they start by picking on one of the other overweight people in the office, who wears glasses as well.

* ThePeterPrinciple: David embodies this. There are some hints that he was previously a good sales rep, which led to his promotion to a job for which he was wholly unsuitable.

* ShuttingUpNow:
** Finch, who usually has an endless supply of witty ripostes, is reduced to stunned silence when Brent [[PrecisionFStrike puts him in his place]] for insulting his date.
** Brent's problem is he '''never''' knows when to do this, so he just [[DiggingYourselfDeeper keeps digging]].
