* ChekhovsArmory: The film is made of this. The climax, in fact, centers around pretty much everything we saw Lauren doing in her acting and ballet classes at the very beginning. Other examples: [[spoiler: Sandy ''and'' Lauren are able to get the virus from Stan at a brothel, because they remember A) what he says during orgasm and B) they know he'll fall asleep after that happens.]]; Sandy's stolen Christmas tree ornament]] comes in pretty handy.)]]

* ShoutOut: Sandy once sarcastically calls out to Lauren as "Lady Di". ShelleyLong, of course, is most famous for playing ''Di''ane Chambers of ''{{Cheers}}''.

* {{Expy}}: Lauren is in many ways a "clone" of [[{{Cheers}} Diane Chambers]], except that she's also great at ballet. ([[PrecisionFStrike And Lauren's willing to curse, if the situation calls for it.]]) Especially notable in that ShelleyLong tends to try and downplay any Diane-like "quirks" when playing other characters--but in this film, she at times seems to be cranking it UpToEleven.

* BewareTheQuietOnes: Lauren, fed up with the mystery, kicks open a crackhouse door, waves a toy gun around (back in a day when toy guns looked real), and starts impersonating an angry cop with a screw loose. Even Sandy is shocked.

** A retroactive example: When Sandy gives a brief summary of the situation to Frank, he looks at her in bewilderment and asks, "The '60s ''were'' good to you, weren't they?" This line would be recycled for ''Film/{{Cars}}'', where an inverted version would be asked ''of'' George Carlin's character, Fillmore....

* HiddenDepths: [[spoiler:Clearly, Michael told Sandy the story about being a teacher too, and after it's exposed as a lie, she tells Lauren that she actually ''baked cookies'' for his class, a sign of her softer side.]]
