YMMV: I'm Alan Partridge

  • Jerkass Woobie: Alan in the final episode of Season 2, although heavily debatable. He's still a complete idiot, but nearly everyone is making offhand remarks about his book being destroyed, he's told he hasn't bounced back at all, and he's seemingly starting to have another breakdown. Even the Actually Pretty Funny anecdote regarding Peter Purvis at the end of Season 2 feels like him clinging to the last traces of his own self-worth.
  • Memetic Mutation - the One Liners. Oh, the One Liners.
    • Jurassic Park!
    • Cashback!
    • Back of the net!
    • Kiss my face!
    • Smell my cheese!
    • Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! Dan! (this only works if you have a friend called "Dan", obviously)
    • Needless to say, I had the last laugh.
    • ... Monkey Tennis? (Crops up regularly to this day on the chatboards of the Guardian, especially when horrible television is being discussed.)
  • The Woobie: Lynn, especially in Season 2.
