* TheTriple: Dodgeball announcer Cotton [=McKnight=] is good at these. "It's an event greater than TheWorldCup, [[UsefulNotes/{{Baseball}} World Series]], and WorldWarII combined!" and "Tomorrow we separate the men from the boys, the wheat from the chaff, and the awkwardly feminine from the [[CanadaEh possibly Canadian]]" -- culminating in "Ladies and gentlemen, I have BEEN to the Great Wall of China, I have SEEN the Pyramids of Egypt ... [[BreadEggsMilkSquick I've even seen a grown man satisfy a camel]]!"

* EightiesHair: White's mullet is a classic invoked example, along with his [[BadassMustache handlebar moustache]]. Along with his choice of clothing when trying to woo Kate, it marks him as a DiscoDan.

* AmbiguousTimePeriod: WordOfGod has it that the movie was supposed to take place in the early 1990s, but the case of AnachronismStew including Peter renting Film/MonaLisaSmile on DVD, as well as digital cable being in existence would suggest otherwise; it pretty much looks as if it could have been set in the present day.
