** The band's very name in all of its iterations (One-ders, Wonders) is a pretty big clue of what [[OneHitWonder their eventual fate]] after "That Thing You Do!" is going to be.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Del chuckles when Guy says he's in a band, telling him that he's been in dozens of bands. They get together and break apart. Guy should have taken that as a warning.

* ArcWords: "I am Spartacus."

to:

* ArcWords: Guy is fond of quoting "I am Spartacus."Spartacus" from, well, ''Film/{{Spartacus}}'' (which had come out four years before the InUniverse date), which serves to nicely describe the movie's arc.

* CreativeDifferences: InUniverse, this is why the band eventually breaks up in a nutshell: the bass player enlists in the Marines (which given the time period probably means Vietnam) and is replaced with a Playtone session bassist, Lenny elopes with a groupie, and then Jimmy {{Rage Quit}}s over being ordered to do a cover album instead of original songs.



*** TheLancer: "Shades"

*** TheLancer: "Shades""Shades" (that is, Guy)


Added DiffLines:

* RageQuit: The last straw for Jimmy is being told by Mr. White that they're going to get to do a second album finally, only for him to dictate under terms of their contract that it will be a cover album rather than original songs. Jimmy quits the band instead, leaving Guy the only original One-der left.

* NoNameGiven: The band's sweetly nerdy bass guitarist (played by Ethan Embry) is never actually named in the film -- another nod to the ephemeral nature of the band. In the epilogue, he's finally identified as "T. B. Player"... that is, '''T'''he '''B'''ass '''P'''layer.

* MyspeldRokband: Parodied. No one can pronounce "the Oneders" correctly. Jimmy's next band is called "The Heardsmen". Fortunately, that band's name isn't phonetically confusing.
