* StrawmanHasAPoint: Dante is supposed to be seen as in the wrong for constantly blaming Randal for most of his problems, but his complaints aren't unjustified. While the NoodleIncident at the funeral was shown to not be Randal's fault (he was accidentally pushed onto the casket), he had no business being there since he didn't know Julie. He got Dante fined for selling cigarettes to a minor, and there was never any indication that he'd pay Dante back for the incident. While Randal didn't know that Dante was reconsidering on [[spoiler: breaking up with Veronica]], he still had no business telling her.

* {{Wangst}}: {{Lampshaded}}. Dante does this all the time, to the point where Caitlin comes to visit him specifically because she knows he's probably spent the whole day agonizing over the wedding announcement. Veronica even briefly mentions that the ''only'' reason he's like this is that he refuses to get over Caitlin, a girl he dated in ''high school'' and was never faithful to him. This ends up being the first thing Randal eventually blows up at him for.

** Though due to the film being made for only $30,000 (the soundtrack cost more than the film). Smith had to use one actor for four roles, plus some weren't professional actors (including Smith) themselves, so this was bound to happen, though the film is mostly NarmCharm in a way.

* IAmNotShazam: Every single poster for the film seems to imply that all five characters featured on the posters are "clerks", when only two actually are.



* TheyJustDidntCare: The people doing the photo shoot for the poster didn't include Jay and rushed the shoot without thinking twice about whether or not he should be there.
** Also every single poster for the film seems to imply that [[IAmNotShazam all five characters featured on the posters are "clerks"]], when only two actually are.
** [[Creator/MiramaxFilms Miramax]] didn't ''want'' Jay on the poster, they thought he was "weird looking" (they had the same problem with Creator/{{Universal}} when making Mallrats and they wanted to replace Jay with a "real" actor), which is funny considering he would go on to be the lead in ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'' and many, many people find Jay very attractive.

** Randall's monologue on the destruction of the second Death Star in ReturnOfTheJedi included the statement that storm troopers don't know jack about installing toilet mains. Then TheForceAwakens gives us Fin, a storm trooper who worked on Starkiller Base (the SpiritualSuccessor to the Death Star) in sanitation. This means there might be at least one storm trooper who knows how to install a toilet main after all.

--> '''Dante''': And you know what the ''real'' tragedy of all this is? '''I'm not even supposed to be here today!'''
--> '''Randall''': '''OH, FUCK YOU, MAN! FUCK YOU!''' [...] "I'm not even supposed to be here today", you sound like an asshole!

!!YMMV from the film:




!!YMMV from the cartoon:
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The "Korean ending" from episode 4.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** In the first episode, one of the phases of the Quicker Stop's world domination is [[WesternAnimation/RobotChicken robot chickens]]. Especially since {{AdultSwim}} would later rerun all six episodes.
** The ending to [[spoiler: Episode 2]] in light of Film/ClerksII.
*** Doubles as HeartwarmingInHindsight.
** In a TakeThat against Creator/SethMacFarlane, a bad cartoonist is shown taking advice from a book purportedly written by [=MacFarlane=], being inspired to write a cartoon that would send its cast to ''Series/GilligansIsland'' and then "make gay jokes about them." Cut to a few years later, a ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h7ss-qRtyw actually did this]].
** Judge Reinhold would later play as himself starring as a judge again in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment''.
** Might also be HarsherinHindsight depending on your view, but the show calling UPN "America's #1 Network" becomes this after it faded into mediocrity and eventually shut down in 2006.
* TooGoodToLast: Canceled after only six episodes were made.
* TheWeirdAlEffect: The parody episode of ''Series/TheSecretDiaryOfDesmondPfeiffer'' featured in the show's pilot is better known than the actual show it's parodying.

** The customer who asks "In a row?" when Dante finds out about his girlfriend's sexual history.



** Meta: Jeff Anderson refused to read the list of porno titles in front of the mother and child, so the scene was shot in close up with [[ReactionShot Reaction Shots]] added. JuddApatow, considered to be Kevin Smith's SpiritualSuccessor, has since done numerous movies where characters shamelessly curse in front of children.
