* CrossesTheLineTwice: Filthy with his "stage school" and "children's catalogue."
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Surely Eddie calling Jumbo Whiffy a "complacent misogynistic bum-splat" counts as one of these?
** Any time Eddie waxes lyrical about the idiocy of British showbiz, really.
* HoYay: Richie and Eddie, starting with the BedMateReveal in the very first scene and continuing throughout the whole series.
** Also, Filthy thinks that Terry Wogan is sexy.
* PlayingAgainstType: While Mayall and Edmondson basically reprise their routine from ''Series/TheYoungOnes'' (and later on in ''Series/{{Bottom}}''), Planer plays a very different character from the dogsbody hippy he became known for. This is mainly because Planer was already an accomplished character actor before he hit fame in ''Series/TheYoungOnes'', with Neil being only one of many characters he used on the comedy club scene.
