* BrickJoke: Three of them—two with short airtimes, and one that had been hanging for about an hour—come together to great effect: [[spoiler: A hotel clerk swaps their credit cards, Neal puts his wallet in a rental car's glove compartment asking Del to remind him to remove it, and Del flicks a cigarette out the window only for it to bounce back in unnoticed. Del reveals he had the credit card and returned it to Neal's wallet—just as the car catches fire incinerating the wallet.]]

* CelebrityParadox: Averted, sort of: At the beginning of the film, Kevin Bacon has a {{cameo}} as another commuter who races Neal for a NYC taxicab. Later, there's a scene where Neal's wife is watching television; while you can't see the screen, the audio is of Kevin Bacon in a scene from another John Hughes film, ''She's Having a Baby''.
