Since he is a reanimated skeleton, kids will assume he is asking where his spirit is, but older kids and adults will know he's reffering to the acoholic beverage known as spirits (crosses over with [[Stealth Pun]] and [[Getting Crap Past The Radar]]

* DoWithHimAsYouWill: At the end of the movie it's revealed that [[spoiler: Barkis killed and robbed Emily after he talked her into eloping with him,]] so the the residents of the Land of the Dead want to punish him. Elder Gutknecht restrains the crowd stating that they are in the land of the living, so they have to abide by their rules. That is until [[spoiler: Barkis drinks the poison wine meant for Victor, so the rules of dead apply to him now.]] The elder's response is: "All yours."

* EyePop: Emily's right eye has a tendency to pop out of its socket. Mostly because her maggot companion pushes it out, though in one instance it comes out by itself when she's crying.

Victor, the son of some [[NouveauRiche wealthy]] [[SelfMadeMan fishmongers]], is entering into an ArrangedMarriage with Victoria, a beautiful young woman from a [[ImpoverishedPatrician penniless aristocratic family]]. The couple [[PerfectlyArrangedMarriage find that they rather like each other, and everything is going swimmingly]]... Except for the tiny problem of Victor being too nervous to learn his wedding vows. He goes into the forest to practice them but, unintentionally, gives the speech (and engagement ring) to the vivacious and fun-loving Emily, who [[AccidentalMarriage thinks they are now married]].

* ImpoverishedPatrician: Victoria's family. To quote Lord Everglot in "According to Plan," they are "land-rich, bankrupt aristocracy without a penny to their name," spoken as he and his wife look into the family safe, which contains nothing but cobwebs. Their house, meanwhile, is large and grand, but, as Mr. Van Dort gracelessly observes (to their faces), shabby and sparsely furnished.

* YourCheatingHeart: Subverted and lampshaded. When Emily comes across Victor reuniting with Victoria, she accuses him of cheating and shows off her ring. Victor then correctly points out that ''Emily'' is the "other woman", as she hijacked his planned marriage to Victoria. Victoria can tell by Emily's behavior that Victor certainly isn't cheating, and she tries to the best of her ability to help him.
