* CaliforniaDoubling: Pretty much everything set in Europe was shot somewhere around Louisville, KY (like most of the rest of the movie) or in California. The Russian base in particular was an old bourbon distillery.

* EagleLand: Most of the main characters are distinctly Type 2 (as Winger puts it, America got started because they got kicked out of every decent country), but still trying to be Type 1. PlayedForLaughs.

* DrillSergeantNasty: Sergeant Hulka, though, befitting an Ivan Reitman comedy, he's more the dry and sarcastic type then a furiously aggressive type such as [[FullMetalJacket R. Lee Ermey.]] In fact, he's one of the few characters in the entire film who has much in the way of common sense.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Sgt. Hulka can't help but let out a few guffaws at Winger's smart-assed "Big Toe" speech before promising to come back at 0500 to put that Big Toe where the sun don't shine.

* AnalogyBackfire: Winger talking Ziskey into helping him rescue the rest of the squad:
-->'''Winger:''' C'mon, it's Czechoslovakia. We zip in, we pick 'em up, we zip right out again. We're not going to Moscow. It's ''Czechoslovakia''. It's like going into ''Wisconsin''.\\
'''Ziskey:''' Well I got the shit kicked out of me in Wisconsin once! Forget it!

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Besides the ColdWar setting, John and Russell are asked by an army recruiter whether either of them are homosexual, which points itself to pre-1994, before "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" first allowed LGBT people to serve in the military.

** A TrainingMontage during basic keeps cutting to Winger doing push-ups in the rain. We're to assume his rampant smart-assery is what has him out doing them repeatedly.
