* AluminumChristmasTrees: When [[spoiler: Cherry Ganz]] falls to his death at the end of ''Another 48. Hrs.'', he lands in the back of delivery truck loaded with 10-gallon spring water bottles that shatter on impact.

* ArtifactTitle: In the original, Reggie was on a 48-hour prison furlough. In the sequel, there is no time limit to his partnership with Jack, yet "48 hours" is still in the title.
* AxCrazy: Albert Ganz.

* BarBrawl: Jack ends up in one in ''Another'', when he meets a guy he arrested couple years back:
-->''"I don't want to get in a bar fight. People are always gettin' in bar fights. It's such a damn cliché. You hear about it all the time and you see it in the motion pictures, people are gettin' hit in the head with [[GrievousBottleyHarm beer bottles]], and [[ChairmanOfTheBrawl furniture]], andó"'' (* breaks bottle over man's head* )

Nolte and Murphy each punch each other the exact same number of times. The fight begins with Murphy landing more punches on Nolte, but then Nolte catches up by the end of the sequence. However, if you count correctly, you'll notice that Nolte is still one punch behind Murphy. That's why once they are both back sitting in the car, about to drive off, Nolte suddenly lands one last knuckle sandwich squarely on Murphy's jaw, and they are even.
* GenreSavvy: After losing his revolver in the first film, Jack keeps a backup in his car in the second for when he's forced to [[TurnInYourBadge hand his main service weapon to]] DaChief.
