** WordOfGod on the commentary says that her monocle pegs her as part of the "Reich" that controls the school, however, so there is status in it.

* RuleOfThree : Happens a few times. We see croquet three times: first in the opening credits, second after the cafeteria scene where [[spoiler: JD shoots at Kurt and Ram]], and third when Veronica invites Betty over to hang out. We see a funeral three times: [[spoiler: Heather Chandler's, Kurt and Ram's, and then Veronica's dream about Heather Duke's funeral]]. During her call to "Hot Probs," Heather gives three names: Heather, [[LineOfSightNaming Madonna, and Tweetie]]. And Veronica interacts with both of her parents three times: the first two times when she eats pate, has a near-identical exchange and then runs off; and the third time when her mother confronts her about her whining.

** On the DVD commentary, Daniel Waters notes that he grew up on Sherwood street, and the name is a nod to Sherwood Forest.


Added DiffLines:

** The Barbie doll hanging from the ceiling late in the film is a ShoutOut to Agatha Christie's ''And Then There Were None'', according to WordOfGod. The victim in that story hangs herself after the killer suggests it.

** WordOfGod on the commentary says this was intended as a parody of the common ShowerScene in films like ''Porky's'', wherein the boys drill a hole in the shower room wall to watch the girls. As originally conceived, the other girls in the locker room would have joined Veronica, clothed, in the shower, thus confusing the boys.



* PrecisionFStrike: Weirdly subverted, due to Executive Meddling, according to the DVD commentary. In the alley scene, when Heather calls out Veronica ("You stupid fuck!" "You goddamn bitch!"), they were supposed to use the word "cunt," as "fuck" had already been used several times. But censors thought this was too much (!).

* CountryMatters : Much to Creator/DanielWaters ' annoyance, the line was changed. During the frat party scene, after Veronical throws up on the floor, Heather follows her into the alley. The final version has Heather calling her "You stupid [[PrecisionFStrike fuck,"]] but the line was originally supposed to be "You stupid c*nt."

* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: There's a [[ArchieComics Veronica and a Betty]], which you might think is a coincidence until you notice their equally significant last names - [[TheAdventuresOfTomSawyer Sawyer]] and [[TheAdventuresOfHuckleberryFinn Finn]] respectively.
