Added DiffLines:

* SelfDemonstratingSong: Popeye goes into a nightclub where a girl group is singing a song called "Everybody Gets to Go to the Moon", which is actually original to the ''French Connection'' soundtrack. Here are some of the lyrics in the chorus:
--> Everybody's going to the moon\\
Everybody's going, it'll be quite soon\\
It's customary in songs like this\\
to use a word like spoon...\\
You know everybody's going to the moon
** The next time the chorus comes around the song uses "June" instead of "spoon".

* StopOrIWillShoot: 'Popeye' guns down the EL assassin as he [[InTheBack turns to flee]], despite the fact that a) he's now unarmed, and b) Popeye couldn't have been sure the man was the same guy who'd taken a shot at him earlier, as there was little opportunity to get a clear look at his face.
