YMMV: Loaded Weapon 1
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Popeye being mugged on the docks. It comes out of nowhere, has no relevance to the plot, and is never mentioned again.
  • Cliché Storm: Parodied with this exchange:
    Gen. Morters: Where's the microfilm, Mike?
    Mike McCracken: I don't know, I gave it to York. I thought she was one of your men.
    Gen. Morters: Act in haste, repent in leisure.
    Mike McCracken: But he who hesitates is lost.
    Gen. Morters: Never judge a book by its cover.
    Mike McCracken: What you see is what you get.
    Gen. Morters: Loose lips, sink ships...
    [Gen. Morters, cornered, looks to Mr. Jigsaw]
    [Mr. Jigsaw consults Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, shakes his head]
    Gen. Morters: Sorry Mike, no good.
  • Ho Yay: During the Silence of the Lambs parody:
    Leacher: Look to a man with whom you were involved.
    [Colt reminisces holding hands with a biker and skipping on a beach]
    Leacher: No, not him. It was in Vietnam.
    [Colt reminisces holding hands with a Vietnamese man and skipping on a beach]
    Leacher: No, you disappoint me, Mr. Colt. It was Mortars. General Mortars.
    [Colt starts to reminisce, then looks disgusted]
    Colt: Wait a minute! I never-
    Leacher: I didn't mean that kind of involvement.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Denise Richards appears as an extra in one scene.
