* LineOfSightName: When Mark and Colin get Cwm FM to host a radio call-in contest to vote on the name of their comedy act, each of them calls in himself to vote for the name he favours. Mark disguises his voice and puts on a fake Northern accent, claiming that he's calling from Anglesey. He is, in fact, standing right outside Y Deri, so when Jinx asks him his name, he comes up with "Elis Maenan" from the signs he sees in the street (for Tomos ac Elis and Apêl Maenan). When pressed, he admits that he's not actually from Anglesey; his eye falls on the sign above the fish (''pysgod'') and chip shop, and he says he's originally from Dinbych y Pysgod…which, being in the far southwest, doesn't match the accent at all.

* GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion: Played straight and averted. Gaynor makes the right choice for herself, but errs when she lies to her partner about the pregnancy and abortion, and tries to manipulate others. Teenager Lois wants to keep her baby, and the changes it will mean for her relationships and education are discussed. The show spells out clearly that advice should come from medical professionals ([[http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/pobolycwm/sites/theseries/cymorth.shtml contact information is provided on the website]]) and not internet blogs.
