** With all the shenanigans they had already gone through, it's likely the cops [[GenreSavvy weren't taking any chances.]]

* HandcuffedBriefcase: As seen at the big concert, Elwood Blues carries his harmonica around in a briefcase handcuffed to his wrist. Jake carries the key.
o The joke of the briefcase goes back to a series of SNL sketches were Dan and John played US Secret Service agents to Chevy Chase's Gerald Ford. That is why they wear dark suits and sunglasses, mimicking the Secret Service dress. The briefcase locked with a chain to the wrist comes from a real member of the US President's detail who carries a locked case with the Nuclear Codes. In one episode of the show, after the President Ford sketch, they appear and open the brief case, showing it contains an harmonica. They then proceed to perform a song.

* DisproportionateRetribution: The Nazis go gunning for the Brothers just because they forced them to jump off a bridges into a lake during one of their hate rallies. The Good Ole Boys and bar owner attempt to kill them over a few hundred bucks. Mystery Woman attempts to kill them both because Jake left her at the altar. A fair chunk of the movie consists of Jake and Elwood trying to avoid being shot, blown up or otherwise lethally inconvenienced over petty misdeeds.
