  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The initiation ceremony Michael goes through when he crosses the International Date Line is deliberately designed to be this.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In the second volume of his diaries, which opens on the filming of his first non-fiction programme, leading to a few severely ironic passages detailing how nervous and uncertain he is about this whole "hosting a documentary" gig.
