* FakingTheDead: Dooley thinks that Jerry Lee died in surgery, and makes a [[AnguishedDeclarationOfLove heartfelt apology]] for having been such a JerkAss. Jerry Lee lift his head each time Dooley turns his back, then plays dead when he turns around. It's a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming until the doctor walks in and tells Dooley that the dog is alive ''and'' awake. Then it becomes a CrowningMomentOfFunny when he turns around and mutters, "You ''asshole''!"

* HollywoodCalifornia: Zig-zagged. The movie takes place in San Diego and was filmed there. The city does get a fairly glamorous presentation, but it's notable since Hollywood usually likes to pretend that San Diego doesn't exist.

Michael Dooley (Belushi) has a problem: He's been tagged for execution by a major international drug dealer named Lyman. In order to help him put Lyman away for good and thereby save his bacon, Dooley's friend Brannigan (Ed O'Neill) gives him a drug-sniffing police dog named Jerry Lee (played by a real-life police dog named Koton), with whose aid Dooley attempts to put Lyman in prison for good. Now Dooley has another problem: Jerry Lee is a DeadpanSnarker with a mind of his own.
