Holden's Love Speech in the Rain.



* ChekhovsGun: Two, but they don't go off until subsequent movies. Jay and Silent Bob's bus tickets to Illinois get them to the midwest in time for the plot of ''Film/{{Dogma}}'', and Banky and Holden's comic book (turned movie) becomes the major plot of ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack''.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: When Alyssa and Holden are playing darts, people behind them can be seen repeatedly entering the opposite gender's bathroom. Though since it is a gay bar (and Holden doesn't know it at the time) this becomes a MeaningfulBackgroundEvent.

* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Hooper mentions the fact that lesbians are becoming far more accepted in society because of this trope, while a gay black man has several additional hurdles to jump through.

* NoodleIncident: Apparently as a child Banky made a nun so angry that she called him a "fucking cunt rag".
** Also, Alyssa's devious sexual past included something [[BestialityIsDepraved involving a dog]], although that might just be some outlandish b.s. tossed off by Jay in his drug-infused ranting.

** WordOfGod suggests [[spoiler:Holden and Alyssa may have gotten back together after the film ended]], so it's arguably an open ending.
** Although, [[spoiler:considering they are not together in ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'', and Holden laments that he misses "dating a lesbian"...]]



* SignatureStyle: Creator/KevinSmith's writing and directorial style is on display here with all of its usual notes: Snarky banter, limited camera movement, frank discussions of comic book sex, copious ''Franchise/StarWars'' references, and ice hockey.
** And MyGirlIsNotASlut, present in ''Film/{{Clerks}}'' as well. Also a lampshading of the ''Series/DegrassiJuniorHigh'' references in the previous two movies.

This film was originally inspired by a brief scene in ''Go Fish'' (cowritten by Smith's friend Creator/GuinevereTurner, who has a cameo here), wherein one of the lesbian characters imagines her friends passing judgment on her for "selling out" by sleeping with a man. In real life, Kevin Smith was dating Joey Lauren Adams at the time he was writing the script, which was also partly inspired by her. Smith has even admitted that the film is basically an apology to Adams for his real-life overreaction upon learning of her sexual past while the two were dating.

dating (though he also makes it clear that her sexual history was nowhere near as wild as Alyssa's, only enough to make him feel inadequate and inexperienced at a young age).

* NoBisexuals: Sort of. [[spoiler: Alyssa is bisexual but identifies as a lesbian until she gets together with Holden, but the word "bisexual" doesn't appear anywhere in the film.]]

Alyssa's friends treat her falling in love with Holden as "losing one to the other team", suggesting a rather binary mode of thinking.]]

** Earlier in the same scene, Alyssa mentions that her best friend had sex with a dead man in the bathroom of Quick-Stop (the setting of ''Clerks''). This happens to a character, Caitlin, in the climax of that film.
