* OedipusComplex: Played for laughs as Frank's internal monologue describes Jane as an alluring goddess when he meets her, only to end with noting that she reminds him of his mother. Then when the captain sees Frank's face he tells him [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike to wipe that look off his face as it looks like he just saw his mother.]]

* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Creatively named locations such as "The Hospital" and "The Police Station" are prominently signed as such. WordOfGod is that the hospital was supposed to be called "Our Lady Who Never Got The Pickle" but RicardoMontalban, a devout Catholic, requested the change. The hospital is name dropped as "Our Lady of the Worthless Miracle."

* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Everyone Calls Her "Mayor"]]: Mayor Barkley ([[Series/LouGrant Nancy]] [[Series/TheSopranos Marchand]]) is never referred to by name, her surname only appearing in the ending credits. Ironically, her {{Expy}} in the sequel, Comissioner Annabell Brumford, is introduced by her full name early on.

* ImprobableWeapon:
** When the hit man who came to kill Jane fights with Frank, they use a whole series of these, including a hair dryer and a towel thrown in Frank's face (a CallBack to the VorpalPillow?), and culminating with a firehose that Drebin accidentally breaks while it's shoved in the hit man's mouth, leading to an off-screen [[YourHeadAsplode Your Body Asplode]]. CrossesTheLineTwice!
** Not mentioning that before the fight, the mook fits a revolver... with a silencer (not entirely impossible, but tremendously impractical).
** Nordberg's accessorized gun-to-cannon upgrade in the second film. This and the previous example also serve as ImprobableUseOfAWeapon
* FunWithAcronyms: The three major energy lobbies (coal, oil, and nuclear) are given incredibly ironic acronyms: Society For More Coal Energy (S.M.O.C.E.), Society of Petroleum Industry Leader (S.P.I.L.), Key Atomic Benefits Office Of Mankind (K.A.B.O.O.M.).



** O.J. Simpson winds up under a bus that just happens to keep running over road cones, signs, random cactuses...
** As Frank pushes Dr. Mainheimer's double's electric wheelchair, he accidentally bumps into a waiter serving hot coffee, which spilled on the double's crotch (and on his wheelchair).

* IntimateMarks: A famous scientist is identified by a birthmark on his buttcheek. When a criminal disguises himself as the scientist, the main character yanks down the man's pants to expose him... only he grabbed the scientist and not the criminal.
