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. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Badass Boast: Mitchell seems to try and invoke this when talking to Deaney after finding out he was the one who paid Greta. Deaney seems... Unconvinced.
Designated Hero: The title character is an alcoholic slob of a cop who behaves like a complete Jerkass most of the time. Sure, he's a little more on the ball than his colleagues (only he suspects that Deaney may not have acted in self defense), but other than that he's a damn lousy cop. When a criminal tries to bribe him by sending him a prostitute, he actually sleeps with her. And then arrests her for possessing marijuana. Nice.
"Funny Aneurysm" Moment: In one MST3K segment, Joel remarks about professional golf player Frank Urban "Fuzzy" Zoeller: "What a great guy!" A few years later there was a controversy when Fuzzy Zoeller made a racially insensitive joke about Tiger Woods.
