* When trying to find out where Dracula's coffin was delivered to, Van Helsing tries reasoning with the ObstructiveBureaucrat preventing him and Arthur Holmwood from seeing the records, stressing how important it is, to no avail. Holmwood very calmly pulls out his wallet and bribes the bureaucrat without saying a word - the bureaucrat quickly changes his tune.
* Later in the film, when Van Helsing and Holmwood are chasing Dracula back to Castle Dracula, Dracula rides his coach right through a barricade, smashing it. The same ObstructiveBureaucrat comes running up, shakes his fist at Dracula and repairs the barricade... just in time for Van Helsing to drive ''his'' coach right through the barricade, smashing it.
