* YouCantGoHomeAgain: Played straight, subverted, averted... call it {{deconstructed|Trope}}. All of the Sams are on the far side of the moon and desperately want to return home to their wife and daughter. Sam 1 (and his predecessor clones) never make it. Sam 2 (and maybe his successor clones) do, but their lives are a lie -- they aren't the "real" Sam; there's nothing to return to. Even if there was, they won't live to enjoy much of it. And Original Sam did his time on the moon and returned home for real -- which set up the clones in the first place.

* WeirdMoon: {{Inverted|Trope}}. Earth, as seen from the Moon, appears larger than it should. In RealLife, it would appear to be almost four times as large as the Moon appears from Earth.

* SuperCellReception: Sam is able to make video cell-phone calls from the Moon to Earth once he gets past the signal jammers, at least.

* SimpleScoreOfSadness: The main theme is rather fast-paced (though still simplistic), but it slows down for the main dramatic moments.

* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: Averted; Sam can't figure out the password to access the logs of all the past Sams until GERTY supplies it for him.

* KillAndReplace: The easiest way to keep costs down, apparently. Each Sam believes he's at the beginning of his three-year contract.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the first scene, Sam is wearing a shirt that says "Wake me when it's quitting time."; later on he comments on talking to himself. Also, the song that's set as the alarm tune: "I'm the one and only".
