* CatchPhrase: Nobody's is, "Stupid fucking CultureClash: The status of tobacco. The white man!" He even [[ActorAllusion gets to say it]] in [[Creator/JimJarmusch Jarmusch]]'s next film ''Film/GhostDogTheWayOfTheSamurai''. characters view it as a vice, while Nobody comes from a culture that views it as a sacrament. When Nobody asks, "Do you have any tobacco?", he's essentially asking, "Will you pray with me?" while the white characters read it as "Can I bum a smoke?"

* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: Thel is an ex-hooker turned paper flower maker, and takes Blake in when he has nowhere to go. It turns out to be a bad idea for both of them.

"Banned in China" entry moved to new Trivia page
* BannedInChina: The Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification banned the film initially, considering a brief (i.e. 4 seconds) scene where a woman is being held at gunpoint while fellating a man to be gratuitous sexual violence. The distributors then delivered a prompt "what the fuck, idiots?" to the review board, who passed it with the R18+ rating.
