* SeriousBusiness: The video store clerk who keeps hassling Melvin over a late copy of ''King Kong Lives'', takes his job ''very'' seriously, to the point of keeping a bulletin board covered with pictures of customers who don't return tapes on time. The clerk makes such a big deal out of it that Melvin is willing to play chicken with a charging muscle car just to retrieve the video.

* InVinoVeritas: The reason Pam and her mom are so desperate to keep Mort from drinking. When he sneaks some booze anyway, he goes on a drunken tirade against them both and telling Melvin that Pam doesn't deserve to marry a NiceGuy like him, with an added benefit of distracting Cisco and his goons long enough for Melvin to blow them both away with a SawedOffShotgun.

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: For the first part of the film, Cisco is an obnoxious but pretty comedic foil for Melvin.
