* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: AJ tries to do this with Corey on the roof of the store, just when he thinks it's the right time for it. Corey, however, had just gone through an embarrassing moment with Rex Manning and isn't in the mood for it. [[spoiler:She calms down later and they hook up after all.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ADayInTheLife: The movie plays out as a SliceOfLife episode, a "Working At Empire Records" kind of day as we watch the employees cope being there. Subverted in that half the cast are going through personal dilemmas, the store itself is facing doom being overtaken by a corporate entity, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking it's Rex Manning Day]].

* AccidentalMisnaming: Warren, whose real name is never revealed. He kind of brought it on himself by being a smart-ass and giving his name as "Creator/WarrenBeatty"... Then everyone who was present for his attempted shoplifting immediately started calling him Warren, and it caught on enough that people who weren't around at the time genuinely thought that was in fact his name.
** By the end of the movie, he's accepted it; the ID card the store issues him as a new employ reads "Hi, my name is Warren".

* RuleOfCool: Sure, in reality it's against the law to perform concerts on top of roofs in a public area and the fine for it would likely exceed the money they earned, but ''that doesn't matter because it was cool.''
** This is averted in an alternate ending on the DVD where everyone performing is arrested at the end. [[spoiler: Including Rex Manning.]]
