* CoolCar: Archie's Jaguar XJ12 H.E. (5.3 litre V12, the most expensive model after the Daimler Double Six)
* ComedyGhetto: Kevin Kline's Oscar was a rare win for a comedic role.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: Ken's repeated attempts to kill an old lady, accidentally killing her dogs in the process.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Otto is an absolute blast to behold, thanks to Kevin Kline's fantastic scenery chewing and the wonderfully absurd nature of his jingoism. As mentioned above, the character was so great that it netted Kline an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
** There's also a great deal of love for Michael Palin's Ken, which won him a Best Supporting Actor prize from BAFTA.
