* OneDimensionalThinking: Double-subverted on the ''Raiders'' sequence. George, who definitely didn't went to the ''Prometheus'' School Of Running Away From Things, sidesteps the rock that is after him at the first chance he gets. The double subversion is that [[ItCanThink the rock]] ''stops on a dime, turns, and keeps chasing after him''.

* RuleOfFunny: The boulder chasing George through the "Raiders" dream sequence actually ''stops and turns'' to continue the pursuit when George flees away from its path.

* TheComicallySerious: The "Head Thug" played by David Proval. He's this sort-off "Intense Italian Mobster" sort of guy;[[note]]His actual ethnic heritage is Romanian-Jewish, but he grew up in a neighborhood that had predominantly Italian cultural influence.[[/note]] (subverted a bit in the cut scenes; when it comes to bugs, he turns into a screaming ninny). The "Killer Thug" might qualify as well. If he wasn't in a family-friendly comedy film, he would likely be NightmareFuel. Instead, he's just an over-eager guy with a creepy face.

'''Esther''': He WHAT? Harvey Bilchik, get in here!

* DespairEventHorizon: This is PlayedForLaughs when George is about to lose the station, and Teri left him. The next day his mood is comically nhilistic when he tries to do "Uncle Nutzy's Clubhouse."

-->'''"Weird" Al Yankovic''': I think this whole scene is a little reminiscent of the 1957 Andy Griffith movie ''Film/AFaceInTheCrowd'', don't '''YOU'''?
