* WorstNewsJudgmentEver: On the road to L.A. Buz robs a convenience store. Nobody is hurt and he stole only $40. This somehow made ''the front page'' of the L.A. Times.

* ChewingTheScenery: Joanie, during her nervous breakdown in front of Michele. -->'''Joanie:''' I had a pretty MIIIIIIIIND!!! Oh God... I wish I had that pretty mind back...

%% * ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The "Eat" diner.

%% * FeedMe: "I had a pretty miiiiind!" * GetOut: Joanie after her drug overdose, suddenly gets enraged and screams at everyone to get out of her room. This prompts Leo to slap her and is the point where Michele first realizes what a scumbag he is.

Michele is not "ambiguously brown." She is clearly very white. Also, Inflation Negation is for when a character in the work comments on inflation; this "things cost less when this movie was made" thing has nothing to do with the work itself. Also the Informed Ability entry is Shoehorned Complaining. Informed Ability is when a character is described as having an ability which is never shown on screen - the question of whether you think they're as good as they're said to be is irrelevant.
%% * AmbiguouslyBrown: Michele.

* InflationNegation: Michele's never seen a $100 bill before, and Critter ''brags'' he made $50 with one of his songs. Hershey bars cost a dime. * InformedAbility: Note to would-be film-makers: When making a movie about a talented dancer, don't cast someone who lurches about like a tipsy aunt at a wedding in your lead role. -->'''Mike:''' Aaaaaaaaaand ''convulse''! -->'''Servo:''' Let's do the agitator cycle! ** Critter's songwriting and musical ability are also ridiculously inflated, leading Mike to query at the end: "Here's a puzzler: which of these two are ''worse'' at their art form?" Crow and Tom are stumped. ** Hell, this is InformedAbility TheMovie. Buz is said to be [[DawsonCasting a child]], Leo is said to be a powerful drug dealer, yet all he does is talk evil, and he goes down pretty fast in the final fight scene. Harry has this lockpick we never see, so as far as we know, the drawer and the cell door were open.

* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The "Eat" diner. ** Lots of old roadside diners have an "EAT" sign outside them to get motorists' attention, as mentioned above, but what makes this one special is that the diner itself doesn't appear to have a name. The place really is called "Eat."

* TooDumbToLive: Harry Blatts, who even gives FamousLastWords about being only "one way" his plan could fail him. --->'''Harry:''' I won't mind seein' you go, because I know that there's now only one way to keep me from having my share. --->''(Buz attacks Harry.)'' --->'''Mike (as Harry):''' Yep, that's the way, you figured out how to do it!

* TemptingFate: Harry Blatts - see Too Dumb To Live. * TooDumbToLive: Nobody in this movie could pass an IQ test (okay, ''maybe'' Critter would write the answers on his wrist), but the sheer petulant incomprehension Michele demonstrates in every single situation she faces is a true wonder to behold. ** Harry Blatts, who even gives FamousLastWords about being only "one way" his plan could fail him.

*** And while this was an idiotic move on Harry's part, Buz was an even bigger moron for actually killing him, or at least doing it right that second. --->'''Mike (as Buz):''' Yes, my plan is perfect. I've been spotted by several people ''and'' I killed a guy! --->'''Tom:''' Well what do you expect? He's [[DawsonCasting only a child]]! *** [[invoked]] Special mention must be given to Critter's decision to [[WhatAnIdiot confront known drug dealer]] and all around thug Leo, tell them he knows about their criminal activity and he's leaving.

Fail O Suckyname is no longer a trope. Wicks are being disambiguated.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Critter. The source of his nickname is even stupider. Michele is delighted by his nickname, but she's easily delighted.
