* HarsherInHindsight: Charlie considers taking his scheme to the Americans, believing them to be people who respect young talent. This line becomes ironic when you consider that the film flopped in the States.

* MemeticMutation: "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" as said by Charlie after witnessing Arthur's bomb, which was meant to blow the back of the practice van's doors off, instead destroys it completely. Evenf funnier is Arthur's sheepish grin towards Charlie.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Mr. Bridger's "feast".
** There's something awesome about the way Bridger runs the prison he's in, like when he walks into the governor's office, sits down at the head of the governor's conference table, royally waves him to come over and invites him to sit down ''at his own table'' and then gives him a bollocking for letting [[ItMakesSenseInContext Croker break into his toilet.]]
** The end of the scene in which Charlie and the gang meet Altabani and the mafia. After Altabani has all their cars wrecked, and then has his dozens of mooks point guns at them, Charlie [[BadassBoast calmly tells him]], in no uncertain terms, that if he kills them, the Italian community in Britain [[MisplacedRetribution will be obliterated]] by Mr Bridger, the mob boss Altabani had slagged off a few minutes earlier. And the best part? Altabani believes this threat, and backs off. And if he hadn't, it's likely that Bridger could have made good on it.
** The sheer audacity of the titular "job", including bringing Turin's traffic to an utter standstill and still making their way through the city in 3 Mini Coopers (And one van full of more of Charlie's boys disguised as English football supporters.), outwitting the police AND the Italian Mafia all the way. One can imagine how the awesomeness of such a crazy theft would have been compounded had their coach and its load of gold ended up hanging over an Alpine cliff.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: The van, or more specifically Croker's line.
** There's also Mr. Bridger's speech during the "funeral" for "Aunt Nellie": "We've come here to pay our respects to Great Aunt Nellie. She brought us up properly and taught us loyalty. Now I want you to remember that during these next few days. I also want you to remember that if you don't come back with the goods, Nellie here will turn in her grave, and, likely as not, jump right out of it and kick your teeth in." His supremely British voice and tone make this even funnier.
** The very moment Charlie leaves prison at the start of the film, Lorna picks him up..and he finds she nicked the Pakistani Ambassador's car.
-->'''Charlie:''' This car belongs to the Pakistani ambassador!
-->'''Lorna:''' It does?
-->'''Charlie:''' Typical, isn't it? I've been out of jail five minutes and already, I'm in a hot car!
-->'''Lorna:''' Charlie, I just wanted you to come out in style, baby.
