* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The parody of ''Film/TheBirds''. Even for a Creator/MelBrooks film, it's weird.
* NightmareFuel: The doctor being killed by being trapped in his car while the radio plays so loud it bursts his eardrums is genuinely disturbing.
** NightmareRetardant: Arguably, the doctor was killed because he was forced to listen to a song / genre of music he didn't care for.
* OneSceneWonder: Future big time director Creator/BarryLevinson is cast as a high-strung bellboy who gets progressively more irritated with Brooks' requests for a newspaper until he goes in [[Film/{{Psycho}} Norman Bates]]-mode. It is considered among the most memorable scenes of the film.
