YMMV: The Fast Show
  • Acceptable Targets - The Fat Sweaty Coppers.
  • Heartwarming Moments - The Competitive Dad's son defending him against his own abusive father, who then storms out. Looks like it's going to be an inversion, as the Dad begins to berate his son, waiting until his father is out of earshot before breaking down and hugging him out of pride.
    • Several of the Ted and Ralph sketches, possibly due to Ralph very much being The Woobie. A notable example is in the final episode, when (a very, very drunk) Ralph sings Elvis's Burning Love to Ted in the middle of the latter's local. Despite Ted's friends pointing and laughing at the hilarity of a Lord trying to sing karoke, Ted can't help smiling fondly.
  • Fountain of Memes
  • Tear Jerker - Rowley Birkin QC, when sober.
    • Can be combined with a Drinking Game to get a Funny Moment.
    • Ralph deciding to burn some of his things from when he was a student at agricultural college:
    Ralph:You remember I never completed the course.
    Ted: Oh, Sir, I came to visit you in the hospital, Sir.
    Ralph: Yes. Now Ted I can't tell you how much I appreciated that. As you know, a lot of people are frightened of, em...of mental illness.
    Ted: Your parents told everyone that you had the flu, Sir.
