* FoodAsBribe: In an early scene, Val and Earl decide to leave Perfection for good, but are stopped by Nancy, who offers them work with free lunches and beer. In the next scene, they're on their way out of town, hardly able to believe they turned the offer down.

* AmbiguousSyntax: With ''RockPaperScissors'', of all things, during the climax - [[spoiler: Earl claims that since he won, he should be the one to [[HeroicSacrifice distract the Graboid while the others flee]], while Val argues that since he lost, ''he'' should act as the distraction.]]

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Amusingly subverted: our first view of Rhonda is with a glob of unflattering sunscreen covering her nose. Later she frankly admits that she needs to "take care of some business" along with the two men.

* FeedItABomb: This works the first time they try it, but not the second, when Stumpy spits the bomb back at them. After this, Burt switches to remote detonation, since they'll always bite.

* ItOnlyWorksOnce: The Graboids have a tendency to find ways to work around the humans' counter-attacks before very long. In the second movie, one of the more successful methods of destroying the Graboids (tricking them into eating explosives) is used, but is adjusted a bit via radio-controlled detonation to prevent the Graboids from having a chance to spit the bombs back out (as had happened in the first film).

So far, they haven't gotten smart enough to know when there's a bomb near them.
