, the sequel to Ben There, Dan That!
This series contains examples of the following tropes:
- Catchphrase: Similarly to Richard Herring's other work, the show quickly establishes a myriad of catchphrases, which continue to be heavily used throughout the series. Examples include "A mouth's a mouth", "I was never confused", "It's been a year", "Look at his face, it's a picture", "I'm cheeky me" amongst almost countless others. The frequency they recur is pretty impressive.
- Malaproper: Several. Including Steve's insistence on pronouncing 'Skeleton' as 'Skelington' because it's "more proper" (a joke used previously by the writer Richard Herring in his double act with Stewart Lee.
