* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: It's set in an unnamed town, although it was filmed in [[TheBigEasy New Orleans]]. However, there is a clue late in the film which points to the New York City area: Tom tells Verna to leave town and go to "the Palisades" until everything blows over. The Palisades is stretch of rocky cliffs of Bergen County in Northern New Jersey and Rockland County of New York State.

* GreedyJew: Bernie is greedy and he is called Jewish slurs many times throughout the movie. On the other hand, most of the film's other criminal players are pretty venal too.

* {{Badass}}: 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.

* 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'.
