** Also, whereas Madeline's ''first'' downfall was her being pushed down a flight of stairs by Ernest, her ''final'' downfall [[spoiler: was the result being pulled ''down'' with Helen on her final flight of stairs after refusing to help her as is about to tumble down said stairs first.]]

* TheSeventies: Painfully so during the opening scene, especially when ''Songbird!'' [[DeaderThanDisco incorporates "Do The Hustle"]] in its big number.

* WhoWantsToLiveForever: The film presents a surprisingly philosophical discussion of this trope. Of course, when the priest eulogizing Ernest says he'd found the secret to immortality through his children and his good works, [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Helen and Madeline both mock the eulogy]].

* BrickJoke: Ernest mentions that since makeup doesn't properly adhere to dead skin, he has to use flesh-coloured spray paint on cadavers. [[spoiler: After being physically dead for 37 years, Mad and Hel need to carry some around to cover their decaying flesh. One of them drops some, which Hel trips on and takes Mad with her down a flight of stairs.]]

* ChewingTheScenery: From three actors you'd ''least'' expect to: Streep, Willis and Hawn. Of the three, Streep is not only chewing the scenery, but she's having a scenery banquet.

* {{Troll}}: Seems Elvis [[ElvisLives enjoys making appearances]] just to freak people out. He gets teasingly called out for it by the emcee.
