Tear Jerker: The Thick of It
  • Seeing Malcolm comfort Sam in Season Three.
  • Malcolm's gradual deterioration throughout the season.
  • Ollie's Face-Heel Turn in Season Four, from helping Malcolm sabotage Nicola, to utterly betraying Glenn, made worse by the moments when he seems to be uncomfortable before he just keeps going.
    • Made even worse by the fact that he appears to be crying in 4.04 after ruining Nicola's career.
  • Malcolm's career falling apart in seasons three and four.
  • Glenn's breakdown in Spinners and Losers.
  • The look on Terri's face when Glenn calls her useless. She was probably the only person in the office that liked him and looks very hurt by it.
  • Watching Nicola's many failures, and the cruel treatment she receives from Malcolm throughout the series.
  • In season four, Glenn's efforts to try and get back into the party, and the way Malcolm turns a begging Glenn down and Ollie just watches.
  • At the Inquiry, the way Glenn apologizes for bringing Ollie into politics.
  • The series' Downer Ending, with Nicola destroyed, Malcolm being forced to resign and facing a possible prison sentence, Ollie having pretty much sold his soul, Stewart being sacked and Glenn quitting as a last effort to redeem himself.
    • Malcolm's exit.
      "No, I want to say something, I want to say something." A long pause. "Doesn't matter."
