* BaitAndSwitch: Doc goes to Benyon his share of the money. As they talk, Benyon tells him about his and Carol's liaison and insinuates that he has been set up for an ambush. All the while, we see Carol walking into the room, gun drawn. . .but she shoots Benyon, not Doc. Though there is a moment where they aim at each other, frozen in shock and horror.

* LaserGuidedKarma: After hanging all over and flirting with Rudy, then sleeping with him practically right in front of her husband, then not having the slightest bit of remorse after he kills himself, Fran is left alone and devastated--and stranded in a strange town miles from home when Rudy himself is killed.
* NoHonorAmongThieves: Rudy kills Frank, which might be understandable as Frank had screwed up the plan and shot the guard. Then he tries to kill Doc and take all the money, but Doc is a quicker draw and shoots Rudy. Then it turns out that Beynon was going to have Carol kill Doc--but Carol shoots Beynon instead.

* ScarpiaUltimatum: This happens in the remake. Doc had been stuck in a Mexican jail (NOT nice) for a while, and suddenly got released. However, now a crooked cop wants him to pull OneLastJob, and the plot starts rolling... anyway, towards the end, the cop betrays them (of course) and in the process reveals that Carol actually slept with him in order to get her hubby out of prison. He's not happy, but it does work out in the end... which makes it a rare example where it actually went through — albeit 'offscreen.'
* ScreamingWoman: It becomes plain that Fran is over her head during the climactic shootout, as Rudy, Doc & Carol, and Beynon's goons are shooting up both a hotel and each other. Doc punches her to shut her up, while in the remake, it's Carol who does this.

Added DiffLines:

* PervyPatdown: Benyon's henchman is clearly enjoying frisking Carol. Plus, she's in a skimpy, skintight dress, so it's already obvious that she's not carrying a weapon.
