** Of course, they did [[spoiler:blackmail the cops into letting them go without jailtime or any records (but not without hilarious results), Mike Tyson forgives them for the tiger incident, Jade acknowledges the marriage as stupid and allows Stu to leave, and the Triads[=/=]Yakuza[=/=]''Whatever the Hell a Korean Mafia is Called'' only wanted the money.]]

* BlofeldPloy: [[spoiler:Marshall seems to be about to shoot Doug, but shoots Black Doug instead.]]



** When Phil remarks that he left his phone in the minivan, which Chow stole, Alan pipes up that he has a find my phone app, and Stu backs up Alan's point by saying they can track Chow down with the app, as if Chow stole the minivan and the phone is in it, it can lead them to Chow. In fact, without Alan's point, the film wouldn't have gone any further.

Added DiffLines:

* ScaryBlackMan: [[spoiler:Subverted with Black Doug. He tries to come across as this due to being associated with Marshall, but he's really incompetent. He sold the wrong drugs to Alan in the first film and his ideas for security at Marshall's villa are bypassed by Chow, so Marshall kills him.]]

** Alan has one when they're trying to come up with a place they can catch Chow and drug him, saying they could use a movie theater. Phil says it's a great idea.

* BadassOnPaper: Alan. He isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer, but when the search for Chow seems to have gone cold, he gives a DumbassHasAPoint moment that gets them back on track, [[spoiler:inadvertantly gets Marshall and his henchman killed, and pulls off a GoThroughMe on Chow by standing in front of Phil and refusing to move, which saves their lives because Chow is unwilling to shoot Alan.]]
* BadBoss: [[spoiler:Marshall calls Black Doug a moron when he tells the group he sold the wrong drugs to Alan in the first movie, and then kills him for having failed him.]]



* BerserkButton: [[spoiler:Black Doug really doesn't like being called "Black Doug".]]



* BringMyBrownPants: Alan pisses his pants [[spoiler:when Black Doug is killed by Marshall]]. Marshall gives him a pair of sweatpants to compensate.



* DarkIsEvil: Marshall, who has [[spoiler:Black Doug]] as his head of security, is always seen wearing a pair of shades and has a black limo, which he allows the group to use to track down Chow after Chow steals Phil's minivan.



* DumbassHasAPoint:
** [[spoiler:Black Doug remarks that "Somebody's gotta pay" when Marshall reveals that the villa is his and Chow ripped him off and killed his guard dogs. Marshall says "He's right" and instead of shooting Doug as Black Doug thought he would do, shoots Black Doug instead.]]
** When Phil remarks that he left his phone in the minivan, which Chow stole, Alan pipes up that he has a find my phone app, and Stu backs up Alan's point by saying they can track Chow down with the app, as if Chow stole the minivan and the phone is in it, it can lead them to Chow.

* HookersAndBlow: Chow's hotel room in Caesar's Palace. We only sees flahses of it for the most part due to the strobe lights. Made awesome due to Black Sabbath being played in the background.

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheSonOfABitch: The sheikh that Marshall stole the gold from in the backstory was wanting to make some less than legal investments when he arrived in the States, so by stealing the gold from him, it's implied they stopped him from making them.


Added DiffLines:

* LargeAndInCharge: Marshall is definitely the one pulling thr strings and is quite a bulky guy.


Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfPool: [[spoiler:When Marshall kills Black Doug for having failed him, his corpse is left floating in the pool.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere:
** Subverted. Alan tries running away from the minivan when Stu, Doug and Phil are captured. One of the henchmen catches up to him and captures him too.
** [[spoiler:Played straight when Chow locks Phil, Stu and Alan in the villa's basement, reactivates the alarm, steals the gold and Phil's minivan, leaving them to their fate.]]

** This is not a career destroying injury for an M.D. in general, only for an someone who specifically wants to be a surgeon. Medical specialties are divided in ''surgical'' specialties, that ''need'' manual dexterity (surgeons (what Teddy originally wants to become), neurosurgeons, ENT's and OB-gyn's are considered this); and ''non-surgical'' specialties, in which manual dexterity is more irrelevant (internal medicine, neurologists, general practitioners and especially psychiatrists). Losing a finger might cut you off for careers in the surgical specialties, but you certainly can still have a brilliant career in the non-surgical M.D. specialties.

* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: Crosses over with WireDilemma above. When Chow reveals he's dyslexic as well as colorblind, you can hear this trope in Stu's exasperated "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis What. The Fuck?!]]"

* DelayedOhCrap: Happens to Alan near the start. He goes into the suite's bathroom and doesn't notice the tiger in the room with him at first. When he does, he merely turns away and mutters, "Stupid tiger." Seconds later, cue the OhCrap when he realises that yes, there is definitely a tiger in the bathroom with him. Cue a hasty exit and frantically warning the others not to go in there.
