** Rose teaches Kenny a kissing technique that makes Kenny open his eyes wide and give a startled little whimper. When he tries it out on Casey, it has exactly the same effect. Later, [[spoiler: he punches out Pablo and a hugely impressed Melissa goes over to him, and he grabs her and they kiss. After a moment, she opens her eyes wide and gives a startled little whimper.]]

* AnOfferYouCantRefuse:
** Brad wants David to do a drug smuggling run for him to Mexico. He offers not only to waive what David owes him, about $43,000, but also promises to pay him $100,000 for it. David refuses initially, because he doesn't want to risk being caught as a drug smuggler. Brad then reminds him that he has no choice in the matter.
** David does this to Rose as well. Not being very fond of him, she understandably refuses at first. However, she quits her stripper job after her boss says he wants her to have sex with the customers, and she also gets an eviction notice, so the money he was offering her for a brief job suddenly doesn't sound so bad.

** Pablo Chacon was smart enough to put a GPS tracker on the drugs his henchmen gave to David. He also lays a trap for them at the mechanic shop, and continues to pursue them with the mechanic's truck after they accidentally smash his car while escaping earlier. And [[spoiler:after he gets the drop on Don, who has just disarmed One-Eye with a giant coffee mug, he orders Don to toss over One-Eye's gun AND the mug.]]

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: "Rose" is actually just her stage name [[spoiler:(her real name is Sarah)]], but that's how everyone knows her; it's apparently even the name on her mail. David (and the audience) don't even find out that Rose isn't her real name until well over halfway through the movie. David calls her by her real name in the film's climax, though, and it seems that [[spoiler:she's gone back to using it by the end of the film when the family is in witness protection, since David introduces her as Sarah to their new neighbors]].

* TeamDad: It takes a while for David to [[BecomingTheMask fully grow into his fake role]], but he does. He has several occasions where he sounds like a scolding father (see HypocriticalHumor for an example), and despite his frequent {{Jerkass}} behavior and insensitive comments, he gives Kenny genuine advice for how to be more confident around girls, and offers to advise him with "birds and the bees" stuff whenever he needs it. His Team Dad status is finally solidified and best displayed in the climax when [[spoiler:[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming he pleads for Pablo Chicon to just kill him, and to let the rest of his family and the Fitzgeralds go]]]].
