*** Almost lampshaded herself after seeing the Gremlins for the first time, convinced "they're" coming for her. Her [[VillainousBreakdown breakdown]] into delusional sobbing before she activates her tampered stairlift and her own demise [[strike: almost makes you feel sorry for her]] makes you cheer as she ''literally'' flies down to Hell where she belongs.

** The Gremlins don't seem to reproduce again until Stripe dips his finger in the fountain, even though he and most of the Gremlins have been walking barefoot through snow to reach the bar and the movie theater.

** In Billy's bedroom you can see a ''Film/TwilightZoneTheMovie'' title marquee in the background. The film featured a segment Joe Dante himself directed: A radically different remake of the episode ''It's A Good Life''.

*** Notably, this isn't the neighbor Billy takes his injured mother to after the Gremlins first hatch (that's Dr. Mollinaro). This is someone Billy sees as he's running down the street to get to work at the bank. Apparently, Dr. Moreau works at the animal clinic. . .

* GeneticMemory: Gremlins, as part of their nature, are born with the capacity to understand the interworkings of machinery and how to sabotage it.

** Or she didn't really know Deagle or the science teacher and Billy didn't have the heart to tell her (especially since the teacher was his friend).

* PoliceAreUselessPoliceAreUseless: Joe Dante probably defines this trope best in the commentary track: "Whenever you have a sci-fi film, and police, you always have to have a scene with the police, and it's always the same scene." Which ends with the police, still not believing Billy despite seeing Gizmo with their own eyes, leaving to investigate the Futterman's "freak accident" with the snowplow, seeing Mrs. Deagle and a guy playing Santa getting attacked by Gremlins, then getting their break lines cut and presumably dying in the ensuing car crash.
