** The alternate present in the third movie is a mix of the two different presents shown in both ''Back to the Future Part 2'' and ''It's a Wonderful Life'', with it being bleaker, there's a corrupt tyrant, and every one of the main characters having a worse life in that timeline than the main one.

* IHaveManyNames: When arrested in the first movie, Scott delays his interrogation significantly by supplying a different name for Saint Nicholas each time he is asked for his name. And then Topo Gigio.

* KeepingSecretsSucks: The reason for Charlie acting out (and getting on the naughty list) in the second film, due to the stress of not being able to tell anyone the truth about what his dad really does, even though he considers it the greatest job in the world.

* HiddenDepths: In the first film there are several scenes that show that underneath his cynicism Scott really is a good man at heart who deserves the role of Santa. Most of them are centered around his son, but there's a brief line of dialogue where he tells Charlie that he tried making things like the magic snowglobe when he first started working with toys, but no one bought them, with a definite note of sadness in his voice.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Inverted; most of the film was shot in Ontario. In one scene, a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiss_Chalet Swiss Chalet]] restaurant stands in for a Denny's.
** Also played straight in the third movie; Carol's parents are led to believe that Scott is a toymaker living in Canada. The "Canada" they visit is just the North Pole decorated in [[CanadaEh a very stereotypical manner]].

** In Part 2, when Carol tells Scott that it would be difficult for the Secret Santa to find said toys, he sarcastically name-drops eBay.
