* BeamMeUpScotty: An unusual instance. While Heston does actually yell "Soylent Green is people!" during the film's climax, most people get the context wrong and believe that he screams it while running down the street and fleeing from the police. In actual fact he says it ''to'' the police, in the middle of a cathedral that has been converted into a homeless shelter, while being carried away on a stretcher. The "running down the street" scenario was actually from a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' parody of the film. They may also be getting it confused with the ending of ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers''.

* EnforcedMethodActing: Heston during Sol's "going home". Robinson had privately told Heston that he was actually dying of cancer. This was Edward G. Robinson's last film; he died twelve days after it was made.
* RealitySubtext: Edward G. Robinson was really dying from cancer during filming. Thorn's tears are Charlton Heston's real tears during the assisted suicide scene.
