--> '''Fletch''': Whoops.

to:

--> '''Fletch''': '''[[spoiler:Stanwyck]]:''' I was already gonna commit one murder, ''assface'', what makes think I won't commit two?
--> '''Fletch''': ...
Whoops.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToFool: Fletch's attempt to bluff a shotgun-wielding landlord falls utterly flat when the old man doesn't understand his made-up excuses and keeps circling back to threatening to call the cops. Fletch makes a run for it after giving the poor guy [[GroinAttack a kick to the balls]], which he seems to comprehend just fine.

Added DiffLines:

* ForcedIntoEvil: Fat Sam and Gummy in the first movie. They are drug dealers, but it's made pretty clear that they're just low-level junkies being exploited and forced into dealing by people higher up the food chain. [[spoiler: Namely, Stanwyck and Chief Karlin.]]

* SequelNonEntity: Larry, Fletch's GirlFriday at the newspaper in ''Fletch'', is nowhere to be found in the sequel. Likewise with Gail Stanwyk, a sufferer of the CartwrightCurse. The same can't be said for Mr. Underhill, although he was pretty much DemotedToExtra (after being not much more than an extra in the first film), only appearing in a DreamSequence (and then only in a panoramic CrowdSong, at that!).

* AmoralAttorney: In both films, Fletch is bothered by his ex-wife's incredibly annoying alimony attorney Melvyn Gillette, who he despises almost as much as his ex-wife. (Supposedly, Melvin was able to get a rather unfair settlement in his wife's favor. [[spoiler:Fletch gets even with him at the end of the second film, however, when he shows up offering to forego all future alimony payments (and never show his face there again) in exchange for the Belle Isle property, which he believes to be valuable. Fletch, barely able to contain his joy, happily signs over the land, which unbeknownst to Melvin, is worthless and covered with toxic waste due to the events of the movie.]]
