* MinorWithFakeID: Fogel gets a crappy fake ID that just says "[=McLovin=] to buy liquor for the party. Inexplicably, it works, but the store is robbed just as he's about to pay and he has to give a statement to the police, which Seth and Evan mistake for getting busted.



* NoodleIncident: We never find out exactly what "non-violent crime" Francis committed, or what sort of people his "friends" are, or why he wasn't welcome at the party. It's kind of implied that he's a pedophile.
** Another one of the noodle incidents in the movie is when Seth tells Greg to piss his pants again, in which Greg replies that that was eight years ago. We don't know what exactly happened and why he wet himself.

* {{AwesomeMcCoolname}}: [=McLovin=], the single name on Fogell's fake ID which he chose himself because he thought it sounded cool. Multiple characters lampshade how nobody would believe that's his real name:

* ButLiquorIsQuicker: The key to Seth's plot to more or less DateRape Jules. [[spoiler: It ends up backfiring, since he gets ''himself'' drunk instead, and Jules (who stays completely sober) refuses to have sex with him while he's drunk.]]

[[spoiler: It ends up backfiring, since he gets ''himself'' drunk instead, and Jules (who stays completely sober) refuses to have sex with him while he's drunk.]] He tries to get Evan to do the same to Becca, but Evan would rather get her to have sex with him by being honest about his feelings. [[spoiler:When he gets to the party, Becca is already wasted and wants to have sex with him right then and there, but he decides he can't take advantage of her in this state and stops her right before she starts vomiting from all the booze she drank.]]

Seth (Creator/JonahHill) and Evan (Creator/MichaelCera) are best friends, seniors in high school who are going off to different colleges next year. [[AManIsNotAVirgin It's their life's ambition to get laid before they leave high school.]] To achieve this, they volunteer to bring the alcohol to an end-of-the-year party where both of their respective crushes will be. They are forced to enlist the help of an annoying friend, Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), and his fake ID, which identifies him [[OnlyOneName only as "McLOVIN"]]. Trying to buy the alcohol, he is caught up in the middle of a robbery, makes friends with the cops (Creator/SethRogen and [[Series/SaturdayNightLive Bill Hader]]), and spends the rest of the night being entertained by them. (That's not a euphemism. It looks like a great time.) Seth and Evan, assuming he's been arrested, strike out on their own to find some alcohol and make it to the party... which they eventually do, except the rest of the night isn't what they were expecting it to be.
