Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion:
** In the scene where the Bishop (played by veteran actor Henry Wilcoxon) is having his best round of golf ever during a thunderstorm, he misses an easy putt, looks skyward and yells "rat farts!", and is immediately struck down by a bolt of lightning. The background music in this scene was from ''Film/TheTenCommandments'', in which Wilcoxon played the part of Pentaur.
** In the sequel, Jackie Mason plays a character named [[Film/TheJerk Hartounian]].

* AwardBaitSong: While not included in the movie itself (aside from a short instrumental version of it), the soundtrack has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SEw2F86gbE Lead the Way]] by Kenny Loggins.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: The sequel. It's typical for the follow-up to a successful film to try to recapture what made the original a hit, but ''Caddyshack II'' [[UpToEleven went to extremes]], with having another theme by Kenny Loggins just the beginning. And it's not just having a similar plot or new characters filling the same roles as those of the original, but the sequel has Suspiciously Similar Substitutes for many of the first film's scenes and gags too.

* PuttingThePeeInPool: {{Subverted}}. When a child throws a chocolate bar into the pool, everyone assumes that it is a large turd, causing a major overreaction from everyone.

* ChekhovsGun: Carl's attempts to kill the gopher are just comedy. Then towards the end his attempts at ''[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill dynamiting]]'' the creature [[spoiler: shake the course so much, that Danny's ball falls into the hole on the final putt, winning him the game for Al]].

** Wait. The gopher never kills anybody. (off-screen THWAK) Okay, except for that guy.

* OutrunTheFireball: What the gopher has to do when Carl sets off the explosives throughout the tunnel complex. [[spoiler:The gopher makes it.]]



* {{Wormsign}}: Well, gophersign anyway -- and it gets pretty ridiculous when the gopher starts pushing around pin flags, and then makes them ''disappear into the ground''.

* IdleRich: Ty probably takes the cake. He owns a few lumberyards but doesn't seem to know where all of them are, doesn't bother cashing checks he receives because he's already rich enough that he doesn't need them, and spends all day playing golf to amuse himself.
