* ProperlyParanoid: Selina's staff has a meeting, and immediately after it ends, it reconvenes with everyone except Tom James so they can talk about him behind his back. After ''that'' meeting adjourns, Mike doubles back to make sure that they're not having a third meeting about him. Ben, the only person left, deadpans "Not today," [[spoiler:but as we find out in Catherine's documentary, Selina did in fact hold a meeting about firing Mike just a few moments later.]]

* DistinctionWithoutADifference: In "C**tgate", the U.S. government is absolutely not considering bailing out banks. They're just considering massive financial infusions for the banks.

* HumiliationConga: Selina's re-election campaign [[spoiler:ends in an electoral tie. Her efforts to find lost ballots only ends up benefiting her opponent, costing her the popular vote. When it becomes clear that the vote in the House will go down to a tie, she tries to throw the vote so that she'll lose so she can run in four years, to no avail. The vote goes to the Senate who will chose from the vice-presidential candidates, meaning she has to accept a humiliating demotion to once again become the veep, to her own VP candidate. However, the Senate vote swings to ''his'' opponent, making the Republican candidate Laura Montez, not Selina, the first female to be elected president. On her inauguration, Montez even ends up taking credit for what would have been Selina's signature achievement, freeing Tibet.]]
