* BechdelTest: The second group of girls pass this just fine. They do briefly talk about the men in their lives, but they also talk about their work, films, cars, guns, and the time Zoë fell in the ditch.

** And in the end it is [[spoiler:Stuntan Mike, lying among the ruins of his no longer death proof car, who is screaming in pain, and pathetically begging the girls (whom he just tried to murder) to "help him". They beat him to death instead.]]

* FinalGirl: Quentin himself noted during interviews about this film that he is a ''major'' fan of Carol Clover's writings on slasher films. As such, part of the thrill of the first half involves how he consciously [[PlayingWithATrope plays with]] this trope in particular: Arlene/Butterfly is set up from the beginning to be a played-straight Final Girl in a standard slasher--especially how she's portrayed as rather "apart" from her friends, and not as open in her sexuality. [[spoiler: Alas, she ends up ''dying'' with the others--which, as Quentin anticipated, is a ''big'' shock to a GenreSavvy audience....]]

* FruitCart: In the final car chase, the girls are amused when they drive through an old boat sitting out in the middle of a field for no apparent reason. "Did you just hit a ''boat?''"
