** "Hole" in general. Imagine being stuck on a 350ft Ferris wheel that's going to be blown up in just a few hours. And that's also falling apart while you're on it.

* NightmareFuel: Richie coming face to face with "Death" [[spoiler:(it's actually Eddie in a costume)]] in "Apocalypse". While it's still PlayedForLaughs, the music that plays during this scene, along with the frightening sound effects and the fact that "Death" appears as a giant with his robe covering his face makes this quite chilling. This all happens on the night that Richie was told by a fortune teller he would die on.
--> '''Richie:''' Oh my God...the moon's up! She was right. She was right! '''''Oh my God!'''''

*** Even before this, there was the sounds of the front door creaking open and the loud footsteps coming towards Richie's room.
** The sound of the burglars breaking into Richie and Eddie's flat in "Burglary". Talk about ParanoiaFuel.

** Even critics of the crude style of Rik and Adrian's comedy admit that the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5p-YQkbe_s Gas Man sequence]] in the episode "Gas" is hysterical.
** Eddie's brilliant ActorAllusion during the jail scene in the second live show:
--> Are you finished? It's just that I'm beginning to understand why Creator/StephenFry fucked off. [[note]] Earlier that year Rik Mayall and Stephen Fry had done the play "Cell Mates" together, where Fry had suddenly left in a fit of depression.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: The second to last scene in "Digger" in which Richie has what looks like a heart attack (it's actually his kidneys and bladder failing on him) is a lot less funny when you remember how Rik Mayall died...

* HilariousInHindsight: The subplot in the final episode involving the Prime Minister being involved in a three-way sex tape took on a whole new level of hilarity when it emerged in 2002 that the then-PM, UsefulNotes/JohnMajor ''did'' have an affair with Edwina Currie during his tenure. It also led to fans speculating whether the third person involved in the threesome was more likely Virginia Bottomley or Anne Widdecombe... or Michael Portillo in a particularly convincing costume.
