* OurProductSucks: Played with. One character's in advertising and designs a logo for a beer company called Hammerhead. He puts a picture of a Hammerhead with a caption saying, "Ugly Fish. Good Beer." (In TheMovie, this was changed to an eel.) The client hates it, and the ad changes to a more traditional beer commercial with models.

* ArmsDealer: Ivan "John" Chukov and Leonid "Leo" Yudanski started out as {{Military Moonshiner}}s in the Soviet Socialist Republic of Grzkjistan, and branched out into selling off military hardware for American dollars as the Soviet Union started to collapse. They moved to South Florida in the late 1990s and set up the Jolly Jackal bar as a front for their arms dealership, for which Miami turned out to be an excellent market.
