* MagicBullets: A single bullet penetrates both Mr Brown's dingy and the various flotation bags supporting the Yankee Zepher, even through neither are directly in line. The recoil of the AR-10 should have pushed the barrel up, not down.

* ManOfWealthAndTaste: Brown's first line is a complaint that the mook sent to greet him is too ugly. He spends half the movie with [[AGlassOfChianti a martini glass in his hand]], including when he's traveling down the river in a dinghy. The impracticality of Brown's luxury is spoofed when, after calmly threatening Barney at his deer farm, Brown climbs back in his expensive limo which then can't drive off as it's bogged down in the mud.

* KungFool: A mook catches Barney sneaking up, intent on braining him with a lump of wood. Instead of grabbing his rifle, the mook begins waving his arms about and howling in a highly exaggerated martial arts style. Barney gapes in astonishment then, as the mook turns to deliver a spinning kick, boots him down the mountainside.
