* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The bathing prostitute scene.
* EsotericHappyEnding: Carrie's murder casts quite a pall over what's supposed to be a happy ending.
* HeyItsThatGuy: [[Film/OnceUponATimeInTheWest Jack Elam]] and [[Series/TheHoneymooners Joyce Meadows]].
* 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''. FreudWasRight.
