* WrongRestaurant: The obnoxious, [[TheNapoleon pint-sized]] [[ThePrimaDonna prima donna]] Martin Weir makes a point of ordering whatever he feels like at the moment, regardless of whether it's on the menu or at all appropriate for the restaurant. Then he plucks his incredulous lunch guests' menus out of their hands and does the same for them.

* ReliablyUnreliableGuns: This trope is subverted when a thug mocks Carboni's choice of weapon (AMT Backup, a small but effective pistol). The thug, perhaps thinking he's GenreSavvy, says "What's that, a Wop 9? The Fiat of guns, always jammin' on you at the wrong time," to which Carboni responds by slinging four rounds through the man's chest.

The thug, Ronnie, perhaps thinking he's GenreSavvy, says "What's that, a Wop 9? The Fiat of guns, always jammin' on you at the wrong time," to which Carboni responds time". Bones just shrugs and happily demonstrates his gun's effectiveness by slinging four rounds through the man's chest. popping 4 bullets in Ronnie's chest.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: Sort of. In the book, Ray Bones is a lot more menacing and a lot less of a complete moron than he is in the movie. However, while for much of the book he's mentioned as an ominous soon-to-arrive threat, when he eventually shows up Chili ends up dealing with him fairly quickly. However, in the movie, while he's a lot stupider he's also around more often, shows up in Los Angeles much sooner and consequently is a lot more of an active threat. [[spoiler: Specifically, the scene where he shows up at Harry's office, beats the crap out of Harry and then shoots Ronnie doesn't appear in the book.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Chili and Bo Catlett are also both very elegant and stylish men who are career criminals but for reasons of birth don't entirely fit in with the criminal organisations they work for, passionately love movies and are fascinated by the movie business, and view the posturing, obnoxious behaviour of their fellow criminals with a certain amount of withering contempt.

* ShoutOut: Chili goes to see a screening of ''Film/TouchOfEvil'', knowing it so well that he repeats the lines. Then ''Film/RioBravo'' on the TV makes Chili go into another movie buff spiel.

* BriefcaseFullOfMoney: Two, actually. There's the $500K of drug money at the airport, and there's Leo's $300,000 in a duffel bag, which was the reason Chili went to LA to begin with.



* IWasNeverHere: After giving Harry an ass-kicking and them murdering Ronnie, Ray says this while putting the gun in Harry's hand and explaining that Harry did it in self defense.

* ScreamingWoman - Karen Flores's claim to fame in Harry's low-budget monster movies when she was a young woman. She reveals that even in her late thirties that she can still belt one out. [[spoiler: this ends up being both a ChekhovsGun and [[Irony ironic]] as the only time she screams is late in the movie which alerts Bo to her presence and he subsequently [[HandGagging puts his hand over her mouth]] and [[DamselInDistress kidnaps her]].]]
