* SherlockScan: [[spoiler: Annabelle knows Zane is Bret's father almost immediately. They both sing "Amazing Grace" the wrong way, for example, and they both have the same ... er, physical characteristics.]]

* MundaneSolution: Annabelle spends the whole movie trying to con, cheat and pickpocket her way into big poker game and counts on her skill as a player to see her through. [[spoiler:She gets nowhere with these tricks and in the end she simply steals half of Maverick's winnings by pulling a gun on him. It's implied that he lets her get away with it so he can have fun trying to get it all back]].

She was able to deduce ''right from the start'' that Zane was Bret's father and went along with it]].

* CardSharp: A few of the players at the game...but when they get caught, they're thrown overboard (one of which was ClintBlack, who sang the song that plays over the poker playing montage.)

* CastingGag: ** A bankrobber (who states that he's "getting too old for this") is played by Danny Glover, who co-starred with Gibson in ''Film/LethalWeapon''. Also an ActorAllusion. ** Similarly, several cheats in the big riverboat championship are thrown overboard. The first is Clint Black, who is also the singer of the song over the very montage he's tossed out in.

* {{Expy}}: Annabelle seems to be one for Samantha Crawford, a very similar character in the series who is also a SouthernBelle con artist and fulfills the same WorthyOpponent + DatingCatwoman role for Maverick.
