* HeKnowsTooMuch: The surest way for an Agatha Christie character to sign his own death warrant is by attempting to blackmail a killer. [[spoiler:Amberiotis of ''One, Two, Buckle My Shoe'']] learned this the hard way. Also goes for anyone who didn't know that they knew anything significant (such as [[spoiler:Celia from ''Hickory Dickory Dock'']]), or who didn't know the whole story but knew something vital (like [[spoiler:Miss Johnson from ''Murder in Mesopotamia'']]). Basically, if you're in an Agatha Christie novel, you'd better hope and pray that you either don't have a major part, don't find anything out, aren't confided to by anyone; or if you do find something out, you know how to ''keep your mouth shut''.

* BadassMoustache: Agatha Christie liked the 1974 adaptation of Literature/MurderOnTheOrientExpress, and had but a single complaint: Albert Finney's mustache wasn't magnificent enough! [[spoiler: Subverted in ''Literature/TheBigFour'' and ''Literature/{{Curtain}}'', in which Poirot has shaved his mustache to pretend to be someone else.]]
