* AscendedFanboy: Creator/KevinSmith is a big fan of Creator/AlanRickman's, which is why he wanted him to play Metatron. Rickman is a fan of ''Film/ChasingAmy'', which is why he wanted to work on ''Dogma''. So, they're kind of fanboys of ''each other''.

Added DiffLines:

** The rite of purification to make holy water is a little more involved than making the sign of the cross over some water. Granted, Bethany has that whole [[spoiler: divine descendant thing going for her,]] but still.


Added DiffLines:

** While the CEO has done something so terrible, the audience never even learns what it was, all that is said:

* NoBiologicalSex: God. Most characters say "He" (including Bartleby and Loki's JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope argument), but Serendipity insists on "She", and Bethany follows suit. [[spoiler:At the climax, God chooses to look like Alanis Morissette.]] Also applies to all divine beings, as Metatron explictly shows with BarbieDollAnatomy (Batleby, Loki, and Serendipity all imply that they too qualify).
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: The Stygian Triplets do this to [[spoiler: ''God'']], of all people at the beginning of the film.

** Bethany has a drunken conversation with a stranger on a train,[[spoiler:via which said stranger, Bartleby, learns that she is the Last Scion and is on a mission to stop him from completing his quest- potentially by killing him. Prior to this, his plan likely was to simply walk into the cathedral. The revelation that Bethany has been set to oppose him pushes Bartleby over the edge, and he eventually stages a violent rampage.]]

* DumbassHasAPoint: It is Jay who recommends the idea of trying to get Glick to close the church. Even the Metatron is surprised. No one seems to notice that it's Silent Bob's idea.
