Added DiffLines:
* BrickJoke: The drugs are estimated to be 500 million dollars worth. Gerry calls bullshit on that, [[HypocriticalHumor stating that's more than what he pays for in the street.]] In the film's climax, Sheehy increadulously states that its only for 200 million.

Added DiffLines:
* CallBack: Everett raises his hand to ask a question to Boyle just before the climax, similar to how Gerry interrupted his lecture early on in the film.

Added DiffLines:
* BrilliantButLazy: Its hinted early on that Gerry's [[ObfuscatingStupidity more intelligent that he let's on,]] but he can't seem to give a fuck about most things due to his utter discontent and boredom on the job.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Gerry takes his mom to a carehouse after she's diagnosed with a disease that leaves her a little time left before her death. The person in charge is a black man whom he doesn't disparage or insult, which is odd considering he belittles Everett later on. [[spoiler: Its a hint of Gerry's underlying intelligence and general badassery, as well as discontent with his job as a police man.]]

* GoodGunsBadGuns: Inverted. Gerry makes use of a Glock and gives Wendell an AK, both of which have reputations as being the WeaponOfChoice for criminals and terrorists in Ireland. He did take these from the IRA. On the other hand, the a few villains make use of revolvers, Cornell favours a SIG-Sauer, which is the pistol issued to armed Gardaí and Sheehy uses a Beretta, which has a long history of being a "Good" gun.
