** You can tell something is a little off with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdCU7rjUSVc that logo]] because it's still the '70s/'80s Universal logo, which isn't CGI in other movies, but this globe obviously is. This is because of another studio (Creator/IndustrialLightAndMagic) doing this particular logo.

Added DiffLines:

* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: Art defends leaving a note reading, "I know what you did," on the Klopeks' door by saying, "Now they know that we know that they know that we know!"

Added DiffLines:

* MistakenForMurderer: The theory that Walter was murdered by the Klopeks comes crashing down when Walt comes back home from the hospital. The reason the Klopeks had his toupee and his magazines was because he asked them to retrieve his mail. And the femur they thought was Walter's? Why, that just belonged to [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope someone they DID kill, obviously]].]]

* BrokenAesop: [[spoiler: What could have been a lesson in tolerance and paranoia becomes subverted in the end, when it turns out they really are evil! Dang.]]
** FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: [[spoiler: At a certain point, behavior and circumstances can be so suspicious and bizarre that "there's probably an innocent explanation" can be dangerously irresponsible (finding actual human remains is probably well past that point). This makes more sense today in the age of "if you see something, say something". Though doing the investigation yourself instead of going to the professionals ''is'' a really, really bad idea.]]

* BigEater: The second thing we see Art do is invite himself to two helpings of breakfast with the Petersons, grab several more munchies from their fridge, eat Ray's leftovers, and then, after finishing, ask if Ray wants to go to town to pick up a sandwich. He later snatches some food from a bowl Carol was holding [[IAteWhat that turns out to be the dog's food]].

* HenpeckedHusband: Poor Ray is accused of being one by Art and Rumsfield, when Carol is really just trying to keep him from acting like an idiot.

to:

* HenpeckedHusband: Poor Ray is accused of being one by Art and Rumsfield, when Carol is really just trying to keep him from acting like an idiot. He briefly goes along with it to throw her off his scent.
* HeroInsurance: Once [[spoiler:the Klopeks are exposed as killers]] everything seems to be hunky-dory with the cops, even though a detective was tallying up all the criminal charges the guys were facing just moments before.



* KarmaHoudini: Even though Art turned out to be right all along about the Klopeks, he's never punished for all of stress and grievance he causes for his neighbors.

to:

* IdiotBall: The Klopeks are so terrible at diverting suspicion that it's a wonder it took years for any of their neighbors to ever suspect them. [[spoiler:Dr. Klopek grabs the ball even tighter by trying to kill Ray in an ambulance surrounded by police.]]
* KarmaHoudini: Even though Art turned out to be right all along about the Klopeks, he's never punished for all of stress and grievance he causes for his neighbors. [[spoiler:At least, he is until his house catches fire.]]



* NoMereWindmill: Type 2. Right about the time you figure out that Ray and his fellow snoops are just being paranoid about the Klopek family, [[spoiler:it turns out they really are serial killers.]]

* NotSoAboveItAll: Ray slowly becomes more obsessed with unmasking the Klopeks than either Art or Rumsfeld.

* SkeletonKeyCard: It doesn't work.Subverted. The card breaks in half immediately.


Added DiffLines:

* UglyGuyHotWife: Mr. and Mrs. Rumsfield. He's a wiry, wild-haired CrazySurvivalist and she's a MsFanservice who looks about twenty years younger then him. This is never really even commented on, let alone played for laughs.
