--> '''Charlie:''' Pull the trigger you miserable blind motherfucker!!!
* HandicappedBadass: Let it be said the colonel is blind. Not disabled. He can dance the tango and if one is within an arm's reach, he can throw said person into the wall and choke the person with little effort.

The colonel, unbeknownst to his niece, is planning a trip to NewYorkCity and is dragging Charlie along with him. Hijinks and drama ensues as the Colonel is staring down his own dark path and past filled with many regrets and a young Charlie burdened by a choice lingering back at his school: to snitch on some students or not.

* SadistTeacher: The Dean shows signs of sadism. [[spoiler:He actively intends to reward George, the snitch who sells out his friends, for doing so, not punish those George identified because it was such a vague answer, and has the nerve to talk about the school's morals and integrity and how it develops character, and how Charlie has betrayed those aspects of the establishment. Frank, by contrast, argues that he doesn't know if Charlie is right by not speaking up, but declares that it actively displays those values the school holds dear, because Charlie won't sell someone out for himself]].

* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: The logic which the three pranksmen follow and which they think will save them. Col. Slade even lampshades this is how these boys will roll.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Frank Slade starts ''way'' too off the cynical side, but by the end of the film he starts to side with Charlie's idealism.
** Notable that Charlie gains a bit more cynicism too (mostly enough to start ACTING on his desires, rather than just waiting for shit to fall in his lap.)

* ObfuscatingStupidity: George Willis Jr. appears affable yet somewhat dim to everyone, but it appears to be an act -- he's rather devious and is willing to sell out anyone. He immediately begins grooming Charlie to take the fall for everyone. Without Charlie's holiday experiences with The Colonel, he probably would have succeeded, too.
