* Raffles, in a moment of rare vulnerability, wonders if there's anything to these rumors of impending World War, and confides in Allan that he'd feel honor bound to serve in that case, to atone for the bad things he's done. Supplemental material confirms that he dies in WWI. Sad? There's a hidden joke there: [[spoiler: in the books Raffles dies after a similar rush of patriotic sentiment leads him to enlist in the Boer Wars]]; seeing as that turned out to be a ploy in this universe, it is very likely Raffles just tricked everyone with the same con ''twice''.

* A bit of small minor humor between Sawyer and Mina. First him trying to make small talk to get over the fact that he watched her first act of Vampirism as well as telling her she missed a spot. Second, Sawyer despite Allan's advice not to, tries and fails to flirt with Mina despite seeing what she did. Bonus points for her teasing him, by only rejecting him for being "Sweet and Young." When he later uses Nemo's Car as part of the plan to save Venice, the impressed look on her face pretty much comically took back what she said to him. Lastly when Venice is saved, Sawyer came back with a bloody lip. She goes to check his wound, but his GenreSavvy senses kick in and he backs away from her breifly, to which she says the following.

* In the midst of a serious news break, the anchor goes to an interview with [[{{Series/TheThickOfIt}} Malcolm Tucker]]. The rant that follows is spot-on.
-->"So, Mr. Tucker, are we returning to an era of spin?"\\
"That depends, Jon. Are you deliberately stamping on my cock? Because if you ARE, I'll take that repulsive unicorn-vomit tie, ram it down your throat, and when it emerges from the other end in a kind of reverse fisting, I'll use it to floss your alimentary canal. Do I make myself perfectly fucking clear?"\\
"...Mr. Tucker, thank you for coming."

* In general, Jimmy turns out to be so hilariously incompetent at his job that it's a surprise to how his 'reputation' as a suave superspy even manages to stand up in this universe.

** The entire sequence of seeking out the Antichrist is ComedicSociopathy and the joke is that the Antichrist is pathetic, a blubbering, pill popping jerk who locks himself away in a room for days but then stays there for years.

* At the beginning of ''The Black Dossier'', Mina beats the tar out of [[Franchise/JamesBond "Jimmy"]] after spending about ten-odd pages [[ObfuscatingStupidity posing as a shallow bimbo named "Oodles O'Quim"]] [[note]]In Britain, "quim" is slang for female genitalia, by the way...[[/note]]. Later, when Allan shows up to drive her away, he berates her for choosing such a stupid-sounding alias, but Mina assures him that Jimmy was convinced. Allan just shrugs it off and says, "He must meet women with stupid names like that all the time..."

* Early in the film Reed questions Quartemain's sense of patriotism to try and get him motivated into joining the League. The results are less than satisfying for the young man.

* Quartermain gets two funny lines in rapid succession:
--> '''Reid:''' You made good time coming here.
--> '''Quartermain:''' Not as good as [[Literature/AroundTheWorldInEightyDays Phileas Fogg]]; around the world in eighty days!
--> [later, while descending a very long flight of stairs]
--> '''Quartermain:''' Where are we going, Australia?
