** Although, he better qualifies for a green card for refugee status. He got sentenced to death by his own government for cultural practices (altering his own teeth), was then forced in military service, and fled to the US to escape. He is a textbook refugee. However, perhaps Seedling doesn't want INS print that they had three refugees from 'Remulak' in official US refugee stats.

-->'''Connie:''' ''(almost offhand)'' How can it take so long to do a simple alignment on an American sedan with standard rack-and-pinion steering and MacPherson struts when your garage is equipped with the proper Borg-Warner digital hydraulic radiometer?\\

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: The Coneheads' BizarreAlienBiology is remarked upon, but no one ever treats it like more than an oddity, rather than obvious signs that they are not human.

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: The Coneheads' BizarreAlienBiology is remarked upon, but no one ever treats it like more than an oddity, rather than obvious signs that they are not human. One human thinks of them as weird, but he's played as an uncouth redneck by Tom Arnold, so it could be people ''do'' think they're strange but treat it like someone avoiding pointing out another person's deformity.

* SeriousBusiness: It's, apparently, high treason for a Remulakian to alter his teeth... excuse me, ''tralns'' in any way. Beldar forgets this.

* ThemeTuneRap: The only way to describe "Conehead Love", featured in the credits and on the soundtrack, which has Beldar and Prymatt essentially reading off the song lyrics in their usual monotonous alien delivery (and Nan Schaeffer singing the chorus). Incidentally, this was the second ThemeTuneRap written for a Dan Aykroyd movie that featured him and a co-star on vocals[[note]]the first being "City of Crime" from ''Franchise/{{Dragnet}}'', performed with none other than Creator/TomHanks[[/note]].
