* CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys: Inverted. The French police actually seem very gung-ho about shooting Abagnale on sight.

* CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys: Inverted. The French police actually seem very gung-ho about shooting Abagnale on sight. Their national pride means they're much more livid at a con man like Frank stealing their money and repeatedly embarassing them.

** Frank at his engagement party, upon seeing the FBI storming the premises, runs after confessing to Brenda that he's lied to her about everything, but he loves her and wants to build a new life with her. He gives her enough money to buy a plane ticket in Miami, and asks her to run away with him in few days. The FBI then enters the room where they talk just as he hightails it out of the window. A heartbroken Brenda, who learns that her fiance was a kid several years younger than her, is forced to cooperate with the FBI at the Miami International Airport to catch Frank, or else face prison time in turn. There is also the fact that he lied to her about who he was, which puts a damper on their relationship.

* PlayingSick: Zigzagged. When Hanratty arrives in the run-down French prison to extradite Frank to the United States, he assumes that Frank's uncontrollable coughing is just him acting in order to attempt another escape. He's legimitely ill however, and has to be taken to the hospital after he collapses in front of Hanratty. He does attempt to escape while there, but he doesn't get any further than the end of the block before he collapses.

** Frank's in a hotel room wearing James Bond's suit, making out with a hooker when she gets up and negotiates him up to $1000 for the night. Frank's about to walk downstairs to cash a check ... and ends up signing a $1400 check over to her in return for the $400 difference.
*** In real life, this was part of Frank's undoing, as the girl gave the FBI a description of what he looked like. Prior to that, the FBI thought they were looking for someone older.

** Carl refuses to believe that Frank passed the bar exam in Louisiana after studying for two weeks.
*** The real Frank Abagnale says he passed legitimately at the third attempt after 16 weeks of studying. A loophole at the time allowed a person to re-sit the exam three times, and their marked exam papers were returned, so essentially they only had to correct the answers they got wrong.

* OneDialogueTwoConversations: When Frank asks Brenda's father for permission to marry her. When Frank says that he isn't a doctor or lawyer but just a kid in love with his daughter, Brenda's father thinks Frank's only being sentimental.
** Also doubles as a CassandraTruth, as Frank was pretty much confessing he was a fraud. Brenda's father misread it as sentimental.
