* ConvenientlyEmptyBuilding: The film takes place in what appears to be most desolate apartment building in New York City. Lampshaded early on when it was explained that of the six tenants living in the building, only Susy and Gloria were actually home - Shatner left for Vermont, Gloria's mother was uptown "for a weekend of fun and games" and her father had left as well, and Sam was off to work.

* DisabilitySuperpower [[spoiler: Lampshaded, really. Roat wears two elaborate disguises to pretend he is two different people, for no apparent reason, other than that's what he does when he pulls the con on other people, or maybe just for the benefit of the girl who also lives in the building. Since Susy can't see the disguises, there's really no point in wearing them, and in fact, she recognizes that he is the same person, because she isn't distracted by them.]]
