* IdiotBall: Frankie and Tic-Tac are given orders to make sure Tom kills Bernie. So what do they do? They stand by the car and ''wait while Tom walks Bernie into the woods. '''[[SoundOnlyDeath Alone]].''''' This is later lampshaded by [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy the Dane]], who beats them both up for being stupid and goes to check for a body.

** A newspaper headline seen briefly reads "Seven Dead in Hotel Fire". This is a reference to ''BartonFink'', which was released a year later than ''Miller's Crossing'' but written at the same time. Also, Tom's apartment is at the 'Barton Arms'.

* {{Badass}}:
** The Dane. He is more or less the strongest and most feared enforcer in the city, he wields a [[CoolGuns Cool Webley Mk VI]] and he absolutely beats the living manshit out of a ''professional prizefighter''.
** Tom, the protagonist, is a rather comical subversion. He repeatedly gets his ass kicked, and only commits one act of violence that actually accomplishes anything.
