* BeyondTheImpossible: "The Debris" contains a lot of supernatural elements, and the ending of "The All Inclusive" feels like a TwilightZoneTwist ending. Yet, most of the rest of the series happens in a very realistic world.
** There are Freaking Transformers in the first episode of Season 2. Likewise, many episodes of Season 2 tend to do this, at least for one joke.

* TheCameo: The first episode of Season 2 involves the villain, the owner of ToxiCompany, sending a freaking TRANSFORMER at Ben and Sophie's house. The robot is however taken down by [[BigDamnHeroes an army jet]] ordered by Henry Wallet. Seems the silly old guy [[GenreSavvy has grown aware of what could happen to his counselor...]]

*CompletelyMissingThePoint: When Ben gets the survey that shows only 13% calling themselves satisfied for the prime minister and see it was a really biased question, the prime minister reaction is simply I'll have you know that 13% of people want to a picnic on the highway with me in underwear.

Added DiffLines:

* OpenMouthInsertFoot: Henry Wallet. It's practically a RunningGag for him, and what's worse, he's a Minister, which means he's most of the time discussing with important people!

--> '''Henry:''' You want to be renowned hrough time? You wanna make it into history? I can put you in a story, listen: 'It's once a guy, two Jews, an English and you in a Hotel.'

* {Expy}: The villain in the finale of Season 2 is built up to be one of Darth Vader; we see from his point of view, people seem scared of him, and he has the mettalic voice, the heavy breathing... Subverted later when it's revealed to be actually a normal man speaking in a can of soup all the time.

Subverted later when it's revealed to be actually a normal man speaking in a can of soup all the time. His nickname is even Don Vader.


Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam: During the Season 2 finale, Henry and Ben have to spy on a meeting held by the Prime Minister of Quebec and a shady man nicknamed Don Vader; for this, they hire an actor. That guy is probably the hammiest actor of all time. Impossible for him to say something normally. He always ups and ups and ups his hamminess...
