* HiddenDepths: Freddy spends most of the movie as the LovableSexManiac PluckyComicRelief. Then Alan gripes that people fall in love "every day. Look at what ''I'' got." Freddy gets dead serious, gives Alan a blistering TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, then says that Alan doesn't appreciate how lucky he is to have someone like Madison: "Every day?! Come on! Some people will never be that happy! '''''I'LL''''' never be that happy!"

* CallingTheOldManOut: Allen was mortified and angry when he finds out Madison, the one person he has come to love, is a mermaid. He starts rambling about how "people fall in love every day", and he ends up with (in his word) a "fish". However, his PluckyComicRelief brother Freddie berates him for giving up on Madison, tells him that "people fall in love every day" is nonsense, and people can never be as happy as Allen felt when he was with Madison.

* TheCastShowOff: The mermaid tail Daryl Hannah wore was fully functional. The showoff part is that, ironically enough, Hannah had learned to swim mermaid style (legs together) since childhood since she was facinated by the story of The Little Mermaid. As a result, with the tail, she swam so fast, the safety divers couldn't keep up.

''Splash'' is a 1984 romantic comedy directed by Creator/RonHoward, surrounding the fairy-tale romance between Allen Bauer (Creator/TomHanks) and the mermaid (Creator/DarylHannah) who rescued him from drowning as a boy. Allen grew to adulthood, believing the young mermaid he saw in the water was only a hallucination, until she again saves him from drowning - but in doing so appears on the radar of Dr. Walter Kornbluth (Creator/EugeneLevy), an eccentric scientist who wants to prove the existence of mythical creatures like mermaids.
