* FlamboyantGay: Jon Polito as Creighton Tolliver. Perhaps he only seems flamboyant next to Ed though.
** He made a pass at Ed by sitting back on his bed and loosening his necktie. Most people today would consider that "relaxing," but apparently in 1940s America it was a blatant come-on. You couldn't be ''too'' flamboyant without getting arrested.
*** He also winked at him.

* HeyItsThatGuy: [[SlingBlade Karl Childers]] blackmails [[Series/TheSopranos Tony Soprano]] for sleeping with the cop from {{Fargo}} and has to hire attorney Adrian Series/{{Monk}}. And he also meets [[Film/TheAvengers Black Widow]].
** Hey! Ed Crane likes to hang out with [[ThePractice Jimmy Berlutti]] and [[StepBrothers John C. Reilly's Dad]]



* ThrowItIn: The actor portraying the piano teacher, Adam Alexi-Malle, plays the opening of the Piano Concerto #1 by Franz Liszt while talking to Ed about Birdie. This was spontaneously done as the Coens were unaware that Adam was in fact an accomplished concert pianist. This is all the more impressive when you consider that the Coens are among the most perfectionist directors out there this side of Kubrick.
