* OneOfUs: Bill Bailey has worn a ''Franchise/DragonBall'' T-shirt and a ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' T-shirt on separate occasions on the show. He also once wore a ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' shirt, and Stephen has referenced Zoidberg in other episodes.

* FreudWasRight:
** In one episode, the audience laughed uncontrollably as the formula for paper folding comes up.
--->'''Stephen''': What you need is length and thickness [[spoiler:(to determine how many times you can fold a piece of paper)]].
*** This may qualify as a [=CMOF=], as quite a few innuendos had been delivered by that point and Rob Brydon simply gave Stephen an innocent "Oh, really?" look...
** Not to mention Doon Makichan absentmindedly miming eating a large deep-fried Curly Wurly. ''Two-handed''. [[http://youtu.be/GXeDuoKQtxQ?t=6m50s Linkski.]]

* NauseaFuel: The Halloween episodes often go into gross-out territory, as did the episode wherein Stephen tried to cajole his guests to eat candy with insects in them, and got sick after trying one himself.

** In one Sandi episode, she warns the panel to prepare themselves for the footage of a worm that blows its nose--literally. It ejects the entirety of its slimy white nasal passages outwards over a man's finger. Phill Jupitus mimes throwing up and then covers his face with a book when she replays it.

* BrokenBase: The bombshell that Stephen Fry would leave as host has naturally caused this reaction. Though, this is downplayed so far in comparison to other shows, as the general consensus among fans so far is that, if Stephen can't be the host, Sandi Toksvig would be the best choice to take over.

* HarsherInHindsight: There are many instances during the "J" series where Stephen Fry is obviously sick, on medication or otherwise not himself (the whole Jumpers episode being the most obvious example). Later that year, he attempted suicide (again), and in an interview afterwards talking about his bipolar disorder, he said, "There are times when I'm doing ''QI'' and I'm going, 'ha ha, yeah, yeah' and inside I'm going, 'I want to f*** die. I want to f*** die.'"

** When David Tennant was on the show jokes were made about Bill Bailey being on the Christmas special of ''Series/DoctorWho''. Come the 2011 Christmas special...
