** One scene that illustrated Jamie's tendency towards this was a deleted scene from the special ''Spinners and Losers,'' when he helps a cleaning lady out in a heated argument with Ben Swain:
--->'''Malcolm:''' I think things have got a little bit...
--->'''Cleaning Lady:''' I have never had anyone speak to me in my life like this before.
--->'''Malcolm:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Well, how long have you been working here?]]
--->'''Cleaning Lady:''' It's enough to give me a heart attack. I'm going to have to sit down. *sits down* And I want a glass of wine! I want a glass of red wine!
--->'''Ben Swain:''' What the fuck?! I'm not going to...
--->'''Jamie:''' Get her a fucking glass of wine!
--->'''Cleaning Lady:''' This man again! This man is going to give me a heart attack!
--->'''Ben Swain:''' God, just shut the ''fuck'' up!
--->'''Malcolm:''' Hey, hey!
--->'''Cleaning Lady:''' I will kill him.
--->'''Jamie:''' Can we get something for you?
--->'''Cleaning Lady:''' I will kill him. You're going to have to call the police; I'm going to kill him.
--->'''Jamie:''' I will kill him. Don't you worry. You don't have to get your hands dirty. I will fucking kill him.

* BritishNewspapers: Malcolm's raison d'etre is to get them to print what he wants, when he wants. Angela Heaney, "the twatbubble from the ''Standard''", is usually pretty compliant (but becomes less so when she moves to the ''Daily Mail'').



* InstantHumiliationJustAddYouTube: An outtake from the party conference episode shows Malcolm dashing away from a [[BritishNewspapers Daily Telegraph]] live podcast. Naturally, it gets put on their website with the headline "Tucker Spurns Our Man On The Ground". Ollie and Nicola gleefully take the piss whilst watching it.

** His colleague Cal "The Fucker" Richards may have been based on Tory Director of Communications [[http://www.torybear.com/2009/12/who-could-they-mean.html Andy Coulson]], a former ''[[BritishNewspapers News of the World]]'' editor known for his aggressive style and allegations of bullying behaviour.

** Nicola's ''[[BritishNewspapers Guardian]]'' meeting from series 3 may be the show's most cringe-inducing moment to date, although the radio interview with Mannion and Richard Bacon comes close.

** Characters occasionally do bad imitations of Malcolm's [[BritishAccents Glaswegian]] accent. Never to his face, of course.

** "Just because you two were raised by Scotch wolves." This show proves that threats sound more menacing in [[BritishAccents Glaswegian]]. Ironically, Paul Higgins (who plays Jamie) [[http://www.guardian.co.uk/culture/2007/aug/15/edinburghfestival2007.edinburghfestival1 hates this trope.]]

* SuddenlyShouting: Surprisingly little, considering how much time the characters do spend shouting, but Malcolm Tucker does provide an amusing BaitAndSwitch when asked by a nameless extra to stop cursing so much:
--->'''Employee''': ''[Interrupting a shouting match between Malcolm and the [=DoSAC=] Minister's office]'' Excuse me, could you stop swearing?\\
'''Malcolm''': Oh, I'm terribly sorry. You won't hear any more swearing from us, you MASSIVE! GAY! SHITE! FUCK OFF!
