YMMV / Four Rooms

  • Armor-Piercing Question: With a dash of either Dare to Be Badass or Break Them by Talking, depending upon your perspective; At the climax of "The Man From Hollywood", Chester lays an even $1000 on the bar and asks Ted if he wants to remember, for the rest of his life, if he refused a thousand dollars for one second's worth of work, or if he made a thousand dollars for one second's worth of work.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The Man From Hollywood's ending is fairly creepy at first, but becomes funny again when Leo's call to the previously mentioned doctor reveals that he's currently performing plastic surgery at 6 A.M., and then in his rush to get to the elevator Chester drops the bucket of ice with Norman's pinky in it, all the while Norman is screaming bloody murder as could be expected of someone who just had a finger chopped off. Angela, for her part, watches all this with disinterest and then returns to her room.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male: During "The Missing Ingredient", Eva very clearly puts Ted under a spell in order to get him to have sex with her, before which he was staunchly refusing to do so while on the clock, and when Ted mentions that "Betty's gonna kill [him]", Eva has the nerve to act offended until being told that Betty is Ted's boss.
    • "Not If They Enjoyed It" Rationalization: When recounting the events of the night to Margaret, Ted is initially upset by the encounter, before relenting that it was "admittedly the best part of the evening"; though it's not saying much considering that by this point he's at his wit's end having been repeatedly harassed, threatened (at gunpoint no less), terrified, and more mundanely put upon by having to run an entire hotel by himself on New Year's Eve.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Cal Lightman sure has quite a story about how he met his ex-wife...
  • Nightmare Fuel: Unknowingly sleeping inches above a decaying corpse.
