**JustifiedTrope: Vincent was casing the place where he was going to do his last hit of the night, so he would know the layout and exits and be able to look like he belonged there when it got later. He also very nearly doesn't get into Max's cab at all, as Max was zoning out at the time and called him back.

* TheWorldsExpertOnGettingKilled: [[spoiler: While the other cops believe Max is the killer, Detective Fanning doesn't think so, in large part because he's familiar with another case in which a cab driver was suspected of a killing people under questionable circumstances. However, he's killed by Vincent before he gets a chance to prove his case.]]

* BluffingTheAuthorities: Jamie Foxx plays a taxi driver who is forced to drive a hitman around to kill several people. One of the victims falls out of a window onto his taxi, causing significant damage. The pair are later pulled over by two officers suspicious of the damage, and the hitman threatens to kill the policemen if Jamie Foxx is unable to talk his way out of the situation. He claims that the damage came from hitting a deer and though the policemen appear skeptical, they receive another call and let him off with a warning.
