** Dutch calls out Elroy (who arranges getaways and fake papers) for killing a client, saying that he just threw away decades of trust and no one would hire him now. Though in Elroy's case it was OneLastJob as he wanted to get out of the business and look after his sick son.

* BilingualBonus: In Episode 6 (in the dub), the old Nazi who hired the Black Lagoon company calls Dutch a "Schwarzen"[[note]] (which was grammatically wrong in this sentence; correct would've been "Schwarzer")[[/note]], which offends the latter. Anybody who knows [[http://dictionary.reverso.net/german-english/Schwarze German]] can tell you that it means "black man" in a derogatory sense.
** In the original manga and Japanese dub of the anime, the old Nazi calls Dutch "Jungle Bunny-kun".

** And Russian, and Spanish, and German (even the racist insult of the old Nazi coot turns out grammatically wrong in the English dub) ... But ''especially'' the English. Not Thai, surprisingly (written script, anyway). In the English dub, Gratuitous ''Japanese'' turns up in the 'translation' scene during the last arc. The Yakuza uses his Japanese seiyuu for the scene, while Rock gets Creator/BradSwaile trying to speak Japanese.

* RetiredMonster: A retired SS officer turns out to be the one behind the plot where both Lagoon Company and some neo-Nazis were going after the same treasure. Setting them up to fight each other was his way of testing the neo-Nazis. Since they all ''died'', they don't get a passing grade. And he also had fond, first hand memories of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wansee_Conference Wannsee Conference]] (meeting of various administrative leaders of UsefulNotes/NaziGermany to implement the FinalSolution) and is still an '''extreme''' racist.

** The theme song contains GratuitousEnglish that puts such gems as [[FistOfTheNorthStar "YOU WA SHOCK!"]] to shame. It still sounds rather threatening, however, being almost an ImageSong of Revy. There isn't a single word of Japanese in there.
