* FairytaleWeddingDress: Wildly subverted with Alice's ridiculous suggestions/designs, including one made out of linoleum, one with a train that is literally a train (''ThomasTheTankEngine'', specifically), and one with lots of hearts with a different Series/DoctorWho in each one. She finally settles on one with "I Love Hugo" emblazoned on it, and a light-up headdress.

* CallingTheOldManOut: When David tells Hugo that, if he marries Alice, then "you will no longer be welcome in this house, you will no longer be my son, and as this will attests, you will have nothing!" Hugo actually stands up to David (a rare feat for him), shoves the will back at him, and says, respectfully but coldly, "On the contrary, sir, I shall have everything in the world that I desire." In later episodes, it seems David was so surprised by this he ''gave up''.

A British SitCom, starring Dawn French as [[EarthMother Geraldine Granger]]. Following the Ordination of Women into the Church of England, Geraldine replaces the old archetypal [[TheVicar vicar]] in the sleepy and quirky country village of Dibley. The village has to get used to the laid back "babe with a bob cut and [[BuxomIsBetter a magnificent bosom]]" being their new vicar, while Geraldine herself has to cope with a village full of lunatics and inbreds, as well as the corrupt machinations of councillor [[DeadpanSnarker David Horton]]. [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity]], as they say, ensues.

* MissConception: The first episode where Alice is pregnant with her and Hugo's first child, she mentions that she can't be pregnant because "the hamster didn't turn blue". To her credit Geraldine lampshades it by saying, "I don't think I'm familiar with that particular pregnancy test."[[note]]Apparently it's a traditional pregnancy test in Dibley. The woman urinates on a hamster, and if it turns blue she's pregnant. [[FridgeLogic Make of that]] [[FridgeBrilliance what you will.]][[/note]]

* TheTag: Each episode would end with Geraldine telling Alice a joke, which Alice would then [[DontExplainTheJoke completely misinterpret]]. One episode broke this trend by having her tell the joke to David Horton, (Alice was on her honeymoon), who ''did'' get it and thought it was hilarious.
** It was hilarious, but the real joke was that Geraldine starts explaining it to him out of habit.
