to:

* YourCheatingHeart: Slevin caught his girlfriend cheating on him. [[spoiler: It didn't actually happen]]. His rebuttal of her excuse is ''excellent'': she's being doggy-styled by some other guy when Slevin walks in, and tries to say, "It was an accident."
-->'''Slevin:''' Accident, eh? What, like, he tripped and you fell?

* ObfuscatingStupidity: - Jeez, this movie plays with Obfuscation like a bandit. Slevin runs a fine line at this all throughout the movie. His stupidity isn't of the literal sort but the physical. Slevin's continuously firing quips at very violent people - two different sets of mooks and mob bosses, as well as the police and is constantly getting punched for it, as soon as physical violence comes into play, Slevin backs down (for a little while at least). It's a brilliant subversion of the idea, [[spoiler: Slevin's actually a fairly accomplished hitman who's killed at least three people just to put himself in play.]] He straddles a line of aggravating people into hitting him, mixed with just not caring about the danger he's in. [[spoiler: Little do his rivals know, he is planning on killing all of them.]] Sometimes, it's unclear if he's doing it on purpose so they underestimate him, because of his [[spoiler: supposed]] ataraxia or if he just honestly pissing off all the people around him ''because he can.''
