* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The bathing prostitute scene.
* DesignatedHero: Bix was getting dangerously close to this regarding Carrie as her murder at the hands of Jesse probably could've been easily prevented. Later on in the film Bix got so fixated on trying to make sure he & Danny leave town he does little to go after Jesse and keeps leaving Carrie alone in the woods at night and it happened even after Bix fought off Jesse while he was trying to sexually assault Carrie just recently beforehand.
* EsotericHappyEnding: Carrie's murder casts quite a pall over what's supposed to be a HappyEnding.
* HoYay: Between Danny and Bix. Bix is vehemently opposed to the kid's attempt to get laid in the whorehouse, has an inability to commit to the waitress, not even getting as far as first base, and has dozens of meaningful glances between him and the kid, as well as a hand on shoulder. They have intimate sleeping arrangements, and even ''blow off dates with girls so he and the kid can shave each other''. At the end, Danny takes Bix home ''to meet his Dad''.
