On 4th and 22, Crewe utilizes a QB draw and manages to beat the entire guards' team single-handedly to pick up a first down [[{{Badass}} (without his helmet, no less)]]. He takes a hard hit after gaining around 25 yards, when he could have easily let the team punt the ball away, and his redemption is earned.

* RevengeBeforeReason: The Mean Machine ends up with a 14 point deficit before a minute passes in the game because they're more focused on injuring the guards they hate than playing the game. Once Crewe chews them out for it, the cons settle down and start playing seriously.

* CoolOldGuy: Nate Scarborough and Skitchy. Of the latter, Scarborough claims "He's been here so long, he knows where everything is."

* CoolOldGuy: Nate Scarborough and Skitchy. Of the latter, Scarborough claims "He's been here so long, he knows where everything is."" The reason he was in there for so long? He punched a guard who ended up becoming the warden. Twenty extra years for one punch, and to him, it was worth every goddamn minute.

** Apparently, this was also the reason for the point-shaving in Crewe's backstory, as he was "in a bad way with some worse people," apparently involving gambling debts. When confiding in his team that he did indeed throw the game when he was in the NFL, Crewe claims that they were prepared to kill him, and he wishes that he'd let them. Apparently, they meant business.

When confiding in his team that he did indeed throw the game when he was in the NFL, Crewe claims that they were prepared to kill him, and he wishes that he'd let them. Apparently, they meant business. And likely would kill him if Crewe tells anyone about this even after five years.

* EvenTheGuysWantHim: At the start of the remake, when the news showed Crewe getting arrested for causing a wreck with his girlfriend Lena's car, her guy friend says "I think I'm in love".
