Fridge Brilliance

  • In one scene Ace Face dazzles the mods by nonchalantly opening his wallet and offering to pay his fine right in court. We later learn that he's not exactly the high-roller he seems to be, working as a lowly bellboy. However, it's because he has such a steady, ordinary job that he can buy an extra-fancy scooter and pay court fees, unlike the other deadbeat mods.
