** After a tower crashes down on the putting green, blocking Happy's path to the hole, Shooter fully expects Happy to not able to putt around it efficiently enough to stay even with Shooter's par. Virginia suggests that he stroke ''around'' the crashed tower and get a two-putt to send the contest into overtime. Instead, Happy decides to use the struts of the tower as conduits to the hole in an attempt to win the game right there.

* HeroicComedicSociopath: Happy's temper, aggression, and disregard for the well being of others (like the family at the end of the street) is played for laughs.

* MassOhCrap: Happy and the two removalists don't care much for the man at the end of Happy's street. When Happy's last shot hits the man's ''wife'' and knocks her off the second storey and onto the ground, however, they are quick to scarper back inside Mrs Gilmore's repossessed house.

* IronicEcho: A villainous example. Shooter's ball ends up on Larson's foot, but his request for a drop is denied when Doug tells him "the rule says play it as it lies." Moments later, when the damaged tower comes crashing down upon the green between Happy's ball and the hole, Virginia asks Doug about cleaning up the debris before Happy putts. Shooter comes and tells them, "No! He has to hit it now! He has to play the ball as it lies!", citing his own challenge of hitting his ball off Larson's foot.

* {{Facepalm}}: During the qualifying event for the tour, Happy's albatross causes Lafferty to do this. It can be said that he's one part exasperated at Happy's wildly fluctuating show of 'skill', and one part worried about his chances of winning the event. (Given that Lafferty remained in the top two or three throughout, and of course ended up losing, the latter would be justified).
