Fridge / Spaced

Fridge Brilliance
  • The scene in the first episode of series 2 ("Back") where Tim goes to the dole office and is interviewed by an Afro-Caribbean woman who, while initially suspicious, is very helpful to Tim once she learns that he lost his last job due to his hatred of The Phantom Menace (and Jar-Jar Binks in particular). The Fridge Brilliance kicks in when you realize which ethnic group Jar-Jar is accused of being a negative stereotype of. Not to mention the fact that the lady in question has been made up to look not entirely dissimilar to the despised Jar-Jar himself.
