* TitleDrop: Luke wins a hand of poker bluffing with "nothing." He comments, "Sometimes nothing can be a real cool hand." This is a big establishing moment for his personality.

* ReturningWarVet: Luke is one of these (whether from WorldWarII or [[TheKoreanWar Korea]] isn't specified in the film, though in the novel it's the former). It's revealed that, despite having made sergeant and earned several citations during his service, he'd also done time in the stockade and gotten busted back down to private by the time he was discharged. Whether his problems with authority and general anti-social behavior are a product, or a cause, of his war experiences is never really addressed.

* ReturningWarVet: Luke is a decorated Army veteran (whether from WorldWarII or [[TheKoreanWar Korea]] isn't specified in the film, though in the novel it's the former). While it's never directly addressed, there's a strong possibility that his antisocial behavior stems at least in part from [[ShellShockedVeteran war-related trauma]].
