YMMV: High Anxiety
- Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The parody of The Birds. Even for a Mel Brooks film, it's weird.
- Nightmare Fuel: The doctor being killed by being trapped in his car while the radio plays so loud it bursts his eardrums is genuinely disturbing.
- Nightmare Retardant: Arguably, the doctor was killed because he was forced to listen to a song / genre of music he didn't care for.
- One-Scene Wonder: Future big time director Barry Levinson is cast as a high-strung bellboy who gets progressively more irritated with Brooks' requests for a newspaper until he goes in Norman Bates-mode. It is considered among the most memorable scenes of the film.
