|These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way.

YMMV: Cool Hand Luke
- Adaptation Displacement: Yes, this is based on a (long-forgotten) novel.
- Crowning Moment of Awesome: Pretty much everything Luke does. Dragline gets one when he attacks Godfrey and knocks off his glasses after he shoots Luke.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: The famous "tar sequence", which would actually be used for a quarter-century on various TV station newscasts, primarily ABC owned-and-operated stations.
- Memetic Mutation: "What we've got here is (a) failure to communicate."
