**[[spoiler:[[TheDragon Cornell's]] last words after being shot by Boyle are "Good shot." When Boyle plays [[ChekhovsSkill the shooting game]] in pub earlier, each time Boyle fires the gun, the computer also said "Good shot."]]

* EaglelandOsmosis: [=McBride=] speaks and acts much like an American cop. Boyle lampshad.es this.
--->'''Gerry''': "I'm on it, Sarge." Where does he think he is? [[PrecisionFStrike Fuckin']] Detroit?!

* WorthyOpponent: The drug traffickers respect Gerry's integrity. Of course, this means that they decide that he must die for it.

* ArcNumber: Two subversions occur:
** O'Leary scrawls 5 1/2 into a wall after killing the man who kicks off the plot. Turns out there was no real reason for it and he was just locked when he did it.
** The value of the drugs is constantly being stated as half a billion. [[spoiler: They're only worth 200 million.]]
--->'''Gerry:''' They're always fucking overestimating!

Added DiffLines:

* TheSociopath: O'Leary was actually diagnosed as one in prison and [[InsistentTerminology insists on being referred to as such instead of as a psychopath]] despite not knowing the difference between the two. When the villains need someone killed, he's the one to pull the trigger.

* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: Aoife downplayes this [[spoiler:given that she is forced to participate in a blackmailing scheme against Gerry]], but she seems to genuinely like Gerry.

** 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 it's only for 200 million.

* MistakenForProstitute: When Gabriella first turns up on his doorstep, Gerry assumes that she's a hooker who has turned up on the wrong night. She doesn't seem too insulted by it and explains that she's looking for his help.
