- Ear Worm: "HELVETICA! HELVETICA! HELVETICA BLACK!"
- Freud Was Right: Played with. Toby tries to call this as the explanation for why Helvetica picks on him. She immediately has him dumped in a garbage can. She repeatedly denies liking him through the film as well, though not quite reaching Suspiciously Specific Denial range. It also doesn't help that she hangs out with him a lot after their story and when at the end she moves just so she would be holding Toby's hand.
- Fridge Horror: One of the many examples: think about what would have happened if the rock had interpreted "make me the most powerful thing in the world" in the mechanical/physical sense. Yep.
- Retroactive Recognition: Hey, it's Fletcher! There's Jack, too.
