* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: See [[Awesome/TalladegaNightsTheBalladOfRickyBobby here]].
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Thanks to a script once again written by [=McKay=] and Ferrell, we get plenty of these.
* FoeYay / HoYay: Ricky and Girard at the end.
* FridgeBrilliance: When Reese tapes a kilo of Colombian bam-bam under Ricky's car (actually a bag of Lucky Charms cereal). What do some call the "War on Drugs"? Prohibition II. How did {{NASCAR}} get started? ''Running moonshine in Prohibition I''. Ferrel and the filmmakers were explicitly calling bullshit on the War on Drugs!
* FridgeHorror: While Granny is whipping Walker and Texas Ranger into shape, she asks "How many times are you going to throw me the radio when I'm in the bathtub?" Considering that doing that can kill someone, those kids seem downright evil.
* HilariousInHindsight: Ricky Bobby's downfall and subsequent effort to rebuild his driving reputation, after Kurt Busch went through a two year stretch like this after Roger Penske fired him at the end of 2011 Sprint Cup season for outbursts. During this time, Busch lampshaded it by driving Ricky Bobby-based cars at Talladega (a "ME" Cougar car in May 2012 for Phoenix Racing and a Wonder Bread car in 2013 for Furniture Row Racing).
* MemeticMutation: "Shake and bake!" In fact it has been heard on actual Sprint Cup drivers' radio communications and also has been used by the TV commentator teams.
** And, for a while, "the best {{Playstation 3}} game on the market." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Early Playstation 3s were bundled with a Blu-Ray disc of the movie.[[/labelnote]]
* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: The film was a huge hit in middle America, despite (or rather, because of) its constantly making fun of rednecks and {{NASCAR}}.
* RetroactiveRecognition: ''Film/{{Borat}}'' as Girard, [[{{Enchanted}} Gisselle]] as Susan, [[Series/{{Glee}} Sue Sylvester]] as Lucy Bobby.
** Even though Borat actually existed before Ricky Bobby did.
* {{Squick}}: The knife scene. ''Full stop.''
** [[FromBadToWorse There's an extended cut/deleted scene of that part]]. At one point they try to wedge the knife out... ''with another knife''.
