* FridgeBrilliance: Raleigh glancing over all of Margot's affairs to focus on her hidden smoking habit seems out of place until you realise he's spent several years with a woman he only just found out he knew absolutely nothing about.

** Margot lost her left ring finger (the one traditionally used for wedding rings). Considering her many failed marriges and relationships, [[IncrediblyLamePun it seems she just can't keep a ring on her finger.]]

* HarsherInHindsight: There's two of these moments in the scene where [[spoiler:Ritchie Tenenbaum attempts suicide by slitting his wrists with a razorblade. The character of Ritchie is played by Luke Wilson, whose brother Owen (who not only plays Eli Cash in the movie, but also co-wrote the film) attempted to kill himself in late 2007 in a similar manner; Owen had also intentionally crashed his vehicle, resulting in facial bandages, necessitating WesAnderson write in such a backstory to Wilson's character in that year's ''Film/TheDarjeelingLimited'']]. Furthermore, this scene is soundtracked by "Needle in the Hay", a 1995 song by alternative folk musician Elliott Smith. Two years after the film was released, Smith succeeded in killing himself (although with a knife, not with a razor blade).

* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: ''"Wildcat... wild... cat... pow..."''
** "Oh, Eli just crashed his car into the building..."
* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: Near the beginning, when Margot gets off the bus to meet Richie, and Music/{{Nico}}'s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_z_UEuEMAo ''These Days'']] starts playing...
** Also,
---> '''Chas:''' I've had a rough year, dad.
---> '''Royal:''' I know you have, son.
** And the scene where "Lullabye" plays. * Sigh*
** As well the inscription on [[spoiler: Royal's tombstone]].



* TearJerker: [[spoiler:Royal's death, of course. And, the dog's death is also quite sad.]]
** [[spoiler:Richie's suicide attempt also.]]
*** Margot bursting into tears in the tent scene after this. It's probably the only time in the film she shows [[EmotionlessGirl any emotion.]]
