* BeachEpisode: The party conference episode in series three. Being ''The Thick of It'', and being set in [[TheGreatBritishSeaside Eastbourne]], this episode is just as unglamorous as the rest. We see Terri in her cagoule, but no-one in their swimsuits, which is [[FanDisservice probably for the best]]. Although we ''do'' get to see [[DracoInLeatherPants Malcolm in black tie]], [[{{Fanservice}} for no apparent reason]].

** Peter Mannion has obviously never heard the end of thethe [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Back_to_Basics_(campaign) Tory sleaze]] affair he had twelve years previously, which resulted in the birth of a child.
** "That married producer on ''The Daily Politics''" and Helen.
* YouNeedToGetLaid: Hugh and Ollie gang up on Glenn--"The last time you saw a snatch was..." "''Film/BasicInstinct!''"
** Emma thinks this about Phil: "I'll put a sex grid on the fridge...so that you can have dates and stuff and I'll put an A4 piece of paper for me up, and maybe you could have half a Post-It note?"
** In a moment of panic, Phil himself admits to Mannion that his personal life is nonexistent and that he hasn't been laid in over 5 years.
** [[JerkJock Adam]] tells Emma she needs to [[YouNeedToGetLaid "get a boyfriend."]] ([[HeteronormativeCrusader She]] tells him to "come out".)
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Actor Alex [=MacQueen=] is in his mid-thirties (and is actually younger than Chris Addison), but his character, Julius Nicholson, looks much older, thanks to his [[PrematurelyBald massive shiny head]]. Old enough to play a [[UsefulNotes/BritishPoliticalSystem life peer]], at least:
-->'''Malcolm Tucker:''' "Have you got all your stuff ready for your official Lording ceremony? Have you got your mink thong and your [[ErmineCapeEffect ermine]] colostomy bag?"
* YouShallNotPass: [[ProudToBeAGeek Phil]] utters this exact phrase when trying to keep Adam from talking to Peter. Naturally, [[JerkJock Adam]] ignores him.

* YouTubePoop: Nicola finds herself starring in one in episode 3.1.
-->'''Nicola Murray:''' "Oh great, someone's just sent me a Website/YouTube clip, which is me in front of the "[[TheProblemWithPenIsland I AM BENT]]" sign randomly intercut with bits from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. It's not even funny! Why do people ''fucking'' do that on Website/YouTube?"

* SleazyPolitician: A pretty huge aversion [[FridgeBrilliance when you think about it]]. Hugh Abbot is an aversion in the manner of ''YesMinister'' as a Hacker-like self-serving coward. Nicola is also not at all sleazy. Incompetent and self-serving, but not sleazy. Peter Mannion isn't even particularly incompetent, although he makes up for that by being a bit backwards; nevertheless, the ''exact opposite'' of sleazy. Stewart and Malcolm are the sleaziest of the lot, with Stewart refusing to honour the idea that families are off-limits and Malcolm's constant near-villainous antics, but they are appointed Communications Directors and Press Secretaries, not, technically, politicians.
