* BackdoorPilot: Sort Of. Notice how the last 2 episodes of Series 2 feature Max & Paddy much more heavily than the rest of the series. Fast forward 2 years and the duo get their own SpinOff in ''Max & Paddy's Road To Nowhere'' which revolves around travelling in the motorhome Max buys at the end of ''Phoenix Nights.''



* ParanoiaFuel: For the first few episodes of his employment, Brian's convinced that Ray Von is a psychotic murderer and the evidence just seems to keep piling up.
* SharedUniverse: Set in the same universe as ''Series/CoronationStreet'', if the floral tribute to Alan Bradley on the Promenade at Blackpool is anything to go by.
** As long as you ignore Ray Von's girlfriend and Shelly Unwin being played by the same person, anyway.
* TalkingToHimself: Brian Potter talks to Max the bouncer face-to-face, and does the same with Keith Lard.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The writers originally considering making it so that Brian was faking his disability. They decided against it in the end, leading to a legitimate disabled lead character on TV (although played by an able-bodied actor, for comedy, and as a jerkass).
