* ActionGirl: The title character of ''Pixeleen'' seems to be a teenage girl who is involved in a fight with an assassin in the subway, complete with descriptions of the weapons she's carrying- while also having to deal with her father and boyfriend calling her in the middle of it.

(However, it is also hinted that the whole song is just a video game.)

* BlindWithoutEm: Walter Becker has worn glasses his entire life, and has never worn contacts or gotten laser surgery. Since the 2000s, Fagen has needed them too and is frequently seen with prescription sunglasses. In fact, in the 70s, they frequently refused to be photographed without sunglasses.

* ForgottenTrope[=/=]DivorceInReno: The Haitian divorce of, well, "Haitian Divorce." Until the liberalization of US divorce law, East Coast Americans trying to divorce their spouses without that spouse's consent would travel to Haiti to get divorced, since Haitian law had long permitted unilateral divorce. This was the most common alternative to Nevada divorce for people on the East Coast, since Haiti was closer than Nevada; one reason you see it less in fiction is that unlike Nevada divorce--whose laws and decisions on marriage and divorce, being those of an American state, must [[AmericanPoliticalSystem be given "full faith and credit"]] by other states--Haitian divorce in the US is governed by the less-expansive law of "comity." Thus many state courts--e.g. UsefulNotes/NewJersey--refused to recognize Haitian divorces until the state legislature adopted no-fault divorce as well. However, New York did recognize Haitian divorces (bizarrely, because it long had the most restrictive divorce laws in the nation--they didn't adopt no-fault until ''2010'').

-->The first part goes on for 17 bars, one in 2/4, as the other musicians vamp on staccato chords beneath. The interlude chords briefly return, and Gadd resumes keep the beat, with a few more flourishes, while Shorter's solo continues. Then the vamp and drum solo resume for another 17-bar section, this one including one bar in 3/4, that ends with a descending chord progression that takes us back into the intro.
::The last word of the chorus ("you") also inserts 3/4 into an otherwise 4/4 section.

** "Haitian Divorce"'s plot involves the protagonist, Babs, getting drunk on a Zombie (a highly alcoholic cocktail) at a bar at a good hotel, then heads to a dive bar so she can get even more drunk on cheap alcohol. At this dive bar, she meets a man who is also drunk and they later have sex, resulting in her becoming pregnant, and forgetting about who the father was until the kid was actually born.
