* ChekhovsGun: Zeke's drug stash in his car, which comes back into play in the ending when he has to retrieve them.



* EverybodyLives: Surprisingly there is a total of three casualties (if [[spoiler:Jon Stewart's character turning up in the ending credits]] isn't canon) in the whole film, none of whom are the main characters.

* ImprovisedWeapon: Zeke yanks the blade off a paper cutter in order to defend the group from Mr. Furlong.



* MissingTrailerScene: Almost all of them. One website joked about this by showing a scene with the title "The Faculty, as not seen in ''The Faculty.''"

Added DiffLines:

* BrilliantButLazy: Zeke is repeating his senior year, but claims to be a genius and what we see supports his claim. Presumably he simply didn't put in the work to graduate.


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Upon seeing [[spoiler:Miss Burke's severed head sprout tentacles to crawl back to her headless body (already back on its feet)]], all Zeke can say is "All right, ''fuck this'' I'm outta here."


Added DiffLines:

* ThisIsThePartWhere: After the group's harrowing first encounter with an alien, we hey this gem:
-->'''Stokely:''' This is usually the part where somebody says "Let's get the fuck out of here"
-->'''Stan:''' Let's get the ''fuck'' out of here.

** When Miss Burke gets [[spoiler: beheaded in the car crash, her head walks around on tentacles]] then she grabs it. This is a recurring art obsession, from [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cephalophore Saint Denis]] to [[http://www.viralnova.com/victorian-headless-photos/ Victorian photographers]]. It is also in Film/ReAnimator and Film/TheSerpentAndTheRainbow.
