** Mrs. Arness could count too, though she's more ignorant than racist.

Added DiffLines:

* TotallyRadical: An attempted aversion, since the writers made up a lot of their own slang rather than risk dating the movie with pre-existing slang.

Added DiffLines:

* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: Peter attempts to blend in when he sneaks into The Down Low to meet with Widow. Being a greying old man dressed like a teenaged hoodlum, it works about as well as you'd expect.

Added DiffLines:

* DoubleEntendre: The club that Peter, Charlene, and Howie catch Widdow and his gang at is called "The Down Low." The term "Down Low" is slang in the African-American community for black men who are closeted homosexuals and have to be discreet in their sexual or romantic pursuits of men.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Jerkass}}: Ashley, Peter's conniving, manipulative, gold digging, racist, alcoholic, self-absorbed sister-in-law. She may also count as a HateSink since she offers nothing to the movie except being a giant bitch.
