* AndTheAdventureContinues: At the end of the film, a newly-empowered Jack sees [[spoiler:the Cowboy disguised as Tuck and Lydia's limo driver (with Scrimshaw and Dr. Canker hidden in the trunk, but Jack doesn't know it)]] and chases after them.
* AppliedPhlebotinum: The whole plot [[MacGuffin revolves around]] retrieving the one-of-a-kind miniaturization/re-enlargement chips. Both projects have entire, working installations devoted to the miniaturization process, but for some reason even the villainous rivals need exactly the same chips as the government-funded laboratory.
* AwesomeButImpractical: Using robot arms to place the chips. Lampshaded when an impatient scientist grabs the chip from the robot and puts it in manually (he ''does'' get a jolt because of it, though).
-->'''Dr. Niles:''' ''(to the man controlling the robot arm)'' Thanks for telling me.

* CuttingTheKnot: Instead of waiting for the robot arms to place the chip, an impatient scientist grabs the chip and puts it in manually. He gets a jolt because of it and calls out the operator for not warning him.

Added DiffLines:

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Tuck is an insubordinate alcoholic and failed Naval Aviator, but he obviously did his anatomy homework before his mission and proves pretty resourceful throughout the movie.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Did they really show Igoe attaching a vibrator to his SwissArmyAppendage before getting private with Margaret? The camera angle certainly was ambiguous enough for the scene to pass the censors. The scene was cut on TV versions though.
