Added DiffLines:

* DrivingADesk: Done as an homage, although the characters are in the back of a driven car rather than driving it themselves. Peyton Reed originally wanted the sequence to use rear projection but had to use chroma key for practical purposes.

* {{Retraux}}: Everything is meant to evoke the look and style of an early '60s romantic comedy, including the deliberately overlit sets, old-fashioned SplitScreen effects, cheesy rear-projected DrivingADesk scenes, etc. They even went as far as making the main cast's wardrobe from scratch, like a movie production from the 60s would have done, rather than obtaining period-specific clothing from a costume warehouse.

* ChangeTheUncomfortableSubject: During Peter and Vikki's date at Catcher's place, Vikki asks if a picture next to the couch is of Peter's parents. Peter [[Reflexive Response replies that no, they are Catcher's parents]] (because it's Catcher's apartment). When Vikki asks why Peter has a picture of Catcher's parents, Peter realises his mistake and tells her they should listen to some music.

Added DiffLines:

* DrowningMySorrows: While Catcher and Peter are at the Astronette bar, a depressed Peter is doing this because of how he thinks it's over between him and Vikki.


Added DiffLines:

* HeroesGoneFishing: When Catcher calls Barbara to arrange their dinner date at Peter's, Barbara is in the midst of sunbathing and Catcher is doing a workout. Also earlier, Catcher is eating a hot dog and Peter is talking about how he needs to pick up his dry cleaning. Catcher sees Barbara and decides to do it on Peter's behalf.


Added DiffLines:

* LightIsGood: Catcher's white jacket that he wears throughout the film, such as during his introduction scene and when he meets Barbara at the dry cleaners.


Added DiffLines:

* ReflexiveResponse: Two.
** In the scene where Peter is trying to woo Vikki at Catcher's apartment, she asks if a picture of Catcher's parents are Peter's. He immediately responds that they are Catcher's parents, which results in a ChangeTheUncomfortableSubject when he realises his mistake.
** The second occurs a few scenes later, also in Catcher's apartment, when Barbara enters Catcher's apartment at the party and encounters Catcher with the beatnik girl in his bedroom. She says, "Catch," as she tosses her coat onto the bed, where they are, and he reflexively sits up and says, "Yes?" This almost causes him to get caught out when Barbara recognizes him, but he manages to cover himself.

* OnlyKnownByInitials: The editors at Banner House. At the beginning, they introduce themselves to Barbara as E.G., C.B., C.W., J.B., J.R., and R.J.. Apparently there's another one known as O.K., but he's not seen. Theodore Banner, the owner of Banner House, is also referred to by his initials, at least by E.G.. Barbara and Vikki have a moment of this later when they refer to themselves as B.N. and V.H. after the book sales skyrocket.
