* 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."

* EverytownAmerica: The film is set in Sherwood, Ohio. This might be a deliberate ShoutOut to John Hughes' fictional Shermer, Illinois.

* DateRapeAverted : No less than ''three times!'' The first time, Veronica tells off her "suitor" at the college party while Heather Chandler is coerced into oral with another creepy guy. The second time, Kurt is so drunk Veronica fights him off; again, Heather is not so lucky. What's PlayedForLaughs as a FunnyBackgroundEvent is Heather [=McNamara=] being raped on the cow pasture. And the third time, J.D. grabs Veronica and kisses her hard. She fights him off. Once Veronica dumps J.D., he continually [[ForcefulKiss forcefully kisses]] her, causing her to continually fight him off.

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

** 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.

** Or because she's testing the waterproof-ness of her Swatch.
