* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Played with. Danny warns Slater not to trust Practice, [[NarrowedItDownToTheGuyIRecognize because he's played by F. Murray Abraham]], [[ActorAllusion who killed]] [[Film/{{Amadeus}} Mozart]]. When Slater later repeats the accusation, misremembering it as "you killed Moe Zart," Practice is confused, but concedes it's possible: "I kill a lot of people. I can't remember half of them."

* RealityEnsues: The entire second half of the film revolves around both Slater and Benedict realizing that the rules of their world don't coincide with that of the real world. Slater discovers that his gunfire won't automatically blow up a vehicle, that his hand hurts when he punches a window out, and that car crashes are much dangerous than he thinks. Meanwhile, Benedict discovers that he can kill with impunity and no one notices.
