* TwoWordsICantCount: After being asked how his mother's funeral was, Gary answers: "It's difficult to put into words. But if I had to choose three, I would say, "Really, really sad." Oh, no, that's two, isn't it? How about, "Really, very sad"?

** It's ''Literature/TheStepfordWives'' meets AlienInvasion. Almost everyone in the film is a StepfordSmiler: the town, Gary, Andy, and Pete in particular. (Steve and Sam are just CannotSpitItOut victims.)

(Steve and Sam are just CannotSpitItOut victims.) Heck, Edgar Wright stated the Blanks are based on the movie poster (seen on the film's trope page.)

* CastingGag:
** After Timothy Dalton's turn in ''Film/HotFuzz'', Pierce Brosnan turns up playing a similar character to Dalton's - Brosnan succeeded Dalton as James Bond.
** Eddie Marsan & Martin Freeman both play characters in different adapatations of ''Franchise/SherlockHolmes'' - Marsan is Lestrade in the [[Film/SherlockHolmes Robert Downey Jr. films]] & Freeman plays Watson in ''Series/{{Sherlock}}''. [[spoiler:Furthering this, is Marsan & Freeman's characters in this film being the only two main characters replaced by Blanks.]]
** Also, Freeman played [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Bilbo]] [[Film/TheHobbit Baggins]] after Ian Holm, [[spoiler:who in ''Film/{{Alien}}'' is an android, just like Freeman becomes a Blank.]]

** When the four are waiting for Gary and Peter suggests Gary might have had an accident en route to pick them up, he is quick to apologize to Andy. [[spoiler:This is because of how Andy was involved in a car accident while driving drunk in 1997 because Gary had overdosed, before Gary abruptly recovered and abandoned him, leading to Andy's animosity towards him.]]



** [[spoiler: Andy]] narrates at the end that "there were casualities... [[spoiler: my cousin Paul. Gary's Mum."]] Earlier in the film, as the group works out that Gary borrowed from all of them in order to repay his debt to Andy, Gary confesses that it wasn't a case of robbing-Peter-to-pay-Paul, it was [[spoiler: "borrowing off Peter to pay Andy. I still owe Paul!"]]

* KickTheSonOfABitch: In Andy's eyes, at least with regard to the "son of a bitch" part. After Peter remarks Gary may have had an accident on his way to pick them up from the station, Andy says it would be the best outcome for all of them, Gary included. Yeah, Gary may be an irresponsible ManChild and a bit of a dick at times, [[spoiler:and almost indirectly killed his friend by accident]], but that was uncalled for. [[spoiler:Especially when we learn later Gary is a nervous wreck who attempted suicide, but Andy didn't know this at the time.]]
