* Whenever a movie is inconsistent about something's name (or the pronunciation of that name), Bill [[CallBack calls back]] to ''Film/OverTheTop'' by impersonating the villain of that film and screaming the hero's name, "Hawk! Or, Hawks!" Even though his name is clearly written on his goddamn truck ("Hawk Hauling"), Lincoln Hawk's name is both said and written elsewhere in the movie as "Hawks". This will also come up on the less frequent occasion wherein a semi truck is prominent in a scene (as in the opening to ''Fast and Furious''), and sometimes when actual hawks are onscreen (as in ''Treasure of the Amazon'').

** As a subset to this, they like saying that thuggish, stupid-looking {{Mooks}} are actually [[GeniusBruiser highly educated]], employed in some humanitarian career, and/or runs their church's youth group. Examples include the moronic buffalo hunter in ''Buffalo Rider''[[note]]Master's in Latin American Poetry[[/note]], the misshapen giant in ''ThreeHundred''[[note]]a highly sought-after family therapist[[/note]], all the arm wrestlers at the climax of ''OverTheTop''[[note]]Professor of Biomedical Studies at Johns Hopkins, etc[[/note]], and both the hairy viking in ''Jack the Giant Killer'' and the "batch handler" in ''This Is Hormel''[[note]]Women's Studies[[/note]]. Likewise, [[Film/SpiderMan1 Bonesaw]] got his wrestling name because he's an orthopedic surgeon.
