YMMV / The IT Crowd

  • Awesome Music: The incredibly catchy theme song.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: "You wouldn't shoot a policeman, and then steal his helmet! You wouldn't go to the toilet in his helmet, and then, send it to the policeman's grieving widow. And then steal it again!"
  • Ear Worm: "Willies, willies, I like willies."
    • No, no; It's "I LOVE willies."
      • Excuse me sir, could you keep it down, please?
    • "0118 999 881 999 119 725"
  • Fridge Brilliance: Douglas mishearing April saying that she used to be a man as "I'm from Iran" is due largely in part to his overall inattentiveness, but he was also eating his entree when she told him. He probably didn't hear her over his chewing.
  • Fridge Logic: Lampshaded in "Are We Not Men"- as the credits are rolling at the end, it cuts back to the scene inside a trailer just after the bank robbery, where Roy asks, "Who closed the doors?"
    • Whoever drove the truck there?
      • Perhaps Derrick drove it there before Barry shot him.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The whole "Fire at Seaparks" joke becomes less funny after this happened.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The joke involving the new, extremely long emergency phone number is that it's far too difficult to remember, especially for a number meant to be called quickly. However, thanks to the catchy jingle, quite a lot of viewers claim to have actually memorized it.
  • Hollywood Homely: Jen's treated as somewhat less attractive than she actually is by most of the cast except Douglas. She's implied to look like a man and have unladylike big feet, amongst other things.
  • Jerkass Woobie: While Douglas dumping (and fist-fighting with) his girlfriend for being a transsexual was a pretty rotten thing for him to have done, it's hard not to feel sorry for him in the Stinger for "The Speech": watching television and eating pizza in his room alone, crying that "It's not the same!" before openly weeping.
  • Memetic Mutation: "FATHERRRRRRRRRR!!"
  • Values Dissonance/Values Resonance: Roy taking his masseur to court over kissing him on the ass. To us, the audience, it's played as a joke. However, it's taken so completely seriously In-Universe (save Jen, who teases Roy about it, much to his annoyance) that almost defies it's own Double Standard: Rape, Male on Male.
  • The Woobie - Jen trying to present Moss's invention on Dragon's Den.
