* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Vivian (known on this page as "the woman in Vivian, the office")assassin undercover as Spencer's assistant.



* MoodWhiplash: Happens a few times, usually after one of the assassins hired to kill Spencer dies. Sure, they were pretending to be their friends, but some of the deaths are rather brutal such as how the woman in the office is dispatched or [[spoiler: Jen's friend]], for that matter.

* ClickHello: Subverted. Jen tries this on a woman who's strangling Spencer, but she doesn't even react to her and continues choking him. Jen angrily pulls the trigger, but the magazine falls out.

* ActionGirl: Jen evolves into this, in a wholesome, 1950s, trust circle kind of way.

* DuelingMovies: ''Killers'' came out around the same times as ''KnightAndDay'', which has a similar plot of an agent falling for a clueless civilian blonde girl.



* NotScreenedForCritics:



* PlayingAgainstType: Ashton Kutcher as an action hero.

* AffablyEvil / FauxAffablyEvil: Many of the assassins come off as this, but seeing as this is a RomCom, it's mostly just PlayedForLaughs.

* PrecisionFStrike: Jen has one in the "trust circle". It even catches Spencer off-guard.

to:

* PoorCommunicationKills: Pretty much the cause of the entire plot. [[spoiler: Tom Selleck is ''also'' a former agent of some sort, and when Spencer's former boss who has gone dirty contacts Spencer, Selleck assumes that Spencer never quit working as an assassin and activates the sleepers.]]
