* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Aldo expresses a desire to force Nazis to wear their uniform for the rest of their lives, so everyone will know they were a Nazi. However, he freely admits that [[AwesomeYetImpractical simply isn't practical]], as sooner or later they'd ''have'' to take it off. So he gives them a little something they can't take off...

** Among the celebrity names written on the cards in the tavern scene are the now largely-forgotten American film actress Pola Negri and German actress [[{{Metropolis}} Brigitte Helm]]. [[spoiler: Negri's inclusion is especially appropriate since all her movies were lost in a vault fire because they were printed on nitrate film, the flammability of which becomes a crucial plot point.]]

* BlatantLies: In the opening scene Hans Landa speaks impeccable, erudite and near-native level French with Monsieur Lapadite, only to very politely inform him at one point that he's 'exhausted' his 'limited' abilities in French, and that the two should go on speaking English. [[spoiler: even if that should have tipped off the Dreyfus family hiding under the floorboards, from their point of view staying put was likely still far more prudent.]]

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: InUniverse, Hicox speaks German pretty well but his accent is shaky; he comes up with a cover story about his accent coming from an obscure Swiss village but it still apparently arouses suspicion.

* HidingBehindTheLanguageBarrier: Hans Landa switches from French to English during his conversation with the farmer in the opening scene. He claims it is because his French is limited, even though he's obviously fluent; he is in fact making sure the Jews hiding under the floorboards can't understand the conversation.
