* ConspicuousConsumption / SuspiciousSpending: What tips off Doyle and Russo about Sal and his wife Angie being involved in drug running.

** Averted with Charnier on the sequel. The moment he gets on the boat that will take him away, he believes he is going to get off clean-only to find out that Popeye chased after the boat ''on foot'' and he is now within Popeye's pistol sights. The film ends immediately after he gets shot in the chest and falls to the ocean.

** On the sequel, the Echo becomes even more ironic: Charnier managed to get away on the first film, and the second one ends with him thinking he's going to get away... and Popeye whistles to him, Charnier turns, and sees Popeye giving him the same wave ''as he's pointing a gun at him''. Charnier only gets a split second to go OhCrap before Popeye shoots him dead.
