  • Ep 12, Season 2: George Dent's rebellious daughter has set fire to his office desk, only for George to discover (thanks to video evidence) that reporter Damien paid her £50 to do it. George walks into his office armed with a hammer to confront his daughter, who freely admits to the payment. At which point George, poor downtrodden, mild-mannered, "always backs down", "everyone walks all over him" George asks "Do you what to make another £50?" and, offering his daughter the hammer, tells her the location of Damien's Porsche.

  • There's also a later moment involving a toasting fork and the Birdie Song, where mild mannered George threatens Daniel Craig, no less, to perform the song, with actions, in revenge for forcing Deborah to steal for him.
  • Gus cracking and breaking into Sir Royston's manor, punching out several guards and delivering a "The Reason You Suck" Speech to his employer.
  • George goes to his ex wife's wedding, makes an insulting speech and pays a call girl to make a pass at the groom, resulting in the bride beating him up and ruining the wedding day.
