!!YMMV from the film:
%%* CultClassic
* EarWorm: "My love for you is like a truck, ''Berserker!''"
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Jay and Silent Bob.
** And to a lesser extent, the little girl who buys the cigarettes.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The part where Veronica and (especially) Dante berate each other over their sex lives was played for laughs in this movie. However, in ''Film/ChasingAmy'', Holden has a similar reaction to Alyssa when he finds out about her previous sexual experiences, which was played entirely for drama and is why their relationship ultimately didn't work out. And that was in turn based off of [[RealitySubtext Kevin Smith and Joey Lauren Adams' relationship]].
* HilariousInHindsight:
** [[UsefulNotes/BillClinton Fellatio doesn't count as sex, eh?]]
** On the commentary featured on the DVD, [[KevinSmith the director]] says that the Soul Asylum video on the DVD is the [[Film/ClerksII closest thing to a sequel]] that the film would ever get.
* HoYay: Randal towards Dante.
-->'''Randal''': Oh, hey Caitlin? Break his heart again this time, and I'll kill you... Nothing personal.
-->'''Caitlin''': You're very protective of him, Randal. You always have been.
-->'''Randal''': Territoriality. He was mine first.
* JerkassWoobie: Dante.
* {{Narm}}: A lot of the acting is pretty bad.
** 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.
* NightmareFuel: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWFBXocl3Go Before the film proper even starts.]]''
* OneSceneWonder: Silent Bob
-->"You know, there's a million fine-looking women in the world, dude. But they don't all bring you lasagna at work. Most of 'em just cheat on you."
%%* SeinfeldIsUnfunny
* {{Squick}}: Caitlyn's "encounter" in the Quickstop's bathroom.
* 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.
* {{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.

!!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.]]
** The ending to [[spoiler: Episode 2]] in light of 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 ''GilligansIsland'' and then "make gay jokes about them." Cut to a few years later, a ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h7ss-qRtyw actually did this]].
%%* TooGoodToLast
* TheWeirdAlEffect: The parody episode of TheSecretDiaryOfDesmondPfeiffer featured in the show's pilot is better known than the actual show it's parodying.
