* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: "La Matrice", Italian for "The Matrix" and a parody of ''Film/TheMatrix'' (named this way because the Italian title for The Matrix was simply "Matrix"). It involves [[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist Luca and Paolo]] tricking [[ButtMonkey Sil]][[TheChewToy vano]] into thinking he's Neo. All of this, with Luca ''quoting Trinity and Morpheus' lines, word for word''.
%%** Not to mention the "ultimate joke" (see above). EPIC.

* WereStillRelevantDammit: The sixth season which came out in 2017, five years after the end of the previous one, and [[ChannelHop was brought]] to the second channel of Italian state television, reeks of this trope. The company [[ChinaTakesOverTheWorld has been sold to the Chinese]], the episodes reference often apps, social networks, new technologies and fads like the "mannequin challenge", there's talks of immigrants like one of their new co-workers, however despite all this the episodes still go on about the same way as always. Some say that it's meant to show how office life never really changes, others say that for that reason such specific references aren't needed and will one day turn the most recent episodes into an UnintentionalPeriodPiece.

* CargoShip: Paolo and his Alfa. He said more than once that he cares more about his car than his own family. He celebrates her birthday (when he doesn't even remember ''his wife'''s birthday) and once he felt really guilty ''for cheating on his Alfa with another car''.

** JerkassWoobie: Luca. He's completely alone, his wife dumped him, he has no family, no friend other than Paolo and he's unsuccesful with women. Also he was bullied during high school, so much so that he attempted suicide. He might be a short tempered, stingy, backstabbing bastard, but you can't watch "Il compagno di classe" and not feel utterly sorry for him. Ilaria is also a JerkassWoobie

* DudeNotFunny: Anna being victim of DomesticAbuse is always PlayedForLaughs.
** There's also an episode that ends with [[JerkAss Luca and Paolo]] laughing in her face when she was ''crying'' because of this.
** Many jokes about Wanda's imminent death, often courtesy of Luca. See MoralEventHorizon.

* CreatorsPet: Patti in season 5, according to many fans.


* JumpingTheShark: the fourth season featured the company merging with Digitex. Particularly awkward since the employees of the formed hated the latter pretty much like [[TheSimpsons the Springfieldians hate Shelbyville.]]
** After the crisis and the failed union with Digitex, the new fifth season has lost '''''many''''' important characters; also Olmo lost all his weight, Luca is going to marry his historical "girlfriend" Alex and eternal virgin Patti is now pregnant with Silvano's kid!

* MoralEventHorizon: It's hard to guess which one out of Luca&Paolo's evil deeds is the worst...It doesn't help that the episodes aren't in a definite order and pretty much anything they did to Silvano can easily qualify.
** A good example for Luca (Paolo was strangely absent in that episode) was the episode "Il compleanno di Wanda" ("Wanda's birthday"). Basically, Wanda is the oldest employee and Luca generally likes making fun of her for her age (specifically, he always makes reference to her presumably imminent death). In that episode it was Wanda's birthday and Luca, being the leader of the company's trade union, was in charge of buying a present for her on behalf of everyone. So he bought a '''coffin''' and brought this big object to the office, to give it to Wanda when everyone was there. When the others discovered what the present was and were obviously shocked, Luca was still joking about it "At least we are sure it's a useful present, she's going to need one very soon" and other similar comments. Then Wanda arrived (with Luca still smiling and everyone else totally embarrassed) and when she started crying while looking at the coffin, Luca laughed in her face and asked her "Noooo, did you already have one?"
