* FollowTheChaos: Once Sloth frees Chunk and the two enter the caves to catch up with the others, this is how Chunk knows that they're on the right track. He specifically comments on this when he sees what happened at the PipeMaze.


Added DiffLines:

* HopeSpot: Chunk has several close calls, but he manages to sneak out of the restaurant without the Fratellis finding out that he was still there, and he gets to a road and gets someone to finally listen to him about his story. And then, right when he thinks he's safe, he finds out that the driver is Jake Fratelli.


Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedKarma: Who's the worst off from when Mikey and the others mess around with the plumbing in the PipeMaze? Troy, the JerkJock who nearly kills Brand by holding on to him when the latter was on bike and the former was driving.

* ZillionDollarBill: One-Eyed Willy's treasure. Most of the treasure is lost completely, but the handful of gems that Mikey manages to hold onto is enough to save the kids' neighborhood from being turned into a country club.

* FictionalDocument: The novelization uses these to set the scene; excerpFiction 500: ts from local Astoria newspaper articles, first detailing the escape of Jake Fratelli, and later covering the “rescue” of the kids, the arrests and prosecution of the Fratelli gang. They also detail the HappilyEverAfter - which is ''really'' happy.
* HappilyEverAfter: Detailed in the novelization through a series of [[FictionalDocument excerpts from the Astoria newspaper]]; because of salvage laws, ''Mikey owns One-Eyed Willie's ship and everything on it.'' As a result, having paid off the loans, the developers are unable to build their golf course, and have to sell the property - and because no-one else in the area has the money ''the Goonies' parents buy everything.'' The land already bulldozed becomes low-cost housing. The country club which the developers built ahead of time becomes a community center. Their parents also build a children’s center, a Chinese restaurant, a plumbing supply house, a fish market, and a public-access invention laboratory. The museum that Mikey's dad chairs even gets a new addition; One-Eyed Willy's ship! The last article is a notice of the Bar Mitzvah for Jason "Sloth" Cohen, the newly adopted son of Mr. & Mrs. Jerry Cohen.
