* TheDreaded: Grossberger. He is so feared by the rest of the prison population that no one wants to get in his way. In one scene in the prison cafeteria, as Grossberger wanders around the room looking for some salt, the inmates occupying those tables practically leap out of their seats to get away from him.

* GroinAttack: Skip and Harry are in a restaurant when a tall man and short taxi driver burst in arguing because the man refuses to pay the driver. Skip decides to be a good samaritan and walks over to diffuse the situation. Just before he gets there, the taxi driver grabs the man 'down there' with a pair pliers and twists, which Skip fails to notice. Of course, the man is now far more co-operative and pays the taxi driver, all while Skip is talking calmly to them both. When the driver releases the pliers and both men leave, Skip walks away thinking it was all his doing.
