!!From the movie:
* AwesomeMusic: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5hK7xlArrg The incredibly eery, tango-like main theme.]] Also doubles as an EarWorm.
* SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct: Brad Pitt.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** This quote:
-->'''James Cole:''' [[Film/TheSixthSense All I see are dead people]].
** Also, when Brad Pitt, the psychotic future terrorist, rants about TV commercials in the asylum. "[[Film/FightClub What are we then? We're CONSUMERS!]]"
** On that same note, it's not the last time Brad Pitt would lead an army of monkeys out to overthrow society.
** Before sending him back in time again, the scientist played by actor Simon Jones tells Cole that his idea of preserving the spider was a good one, and to try it again. Jones would know; as Arthur Dent, in the original radio series of ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', he and Ford Prefect pulled off a pretty similar trick with a fossilised towel.
* NarmCharm: The airport shooting [[spoiler: of James Cole]], anyone? Pretty narmy by all standards, but [[spoiler: by the final time the scene is played, it's turned into a TearJerker]].

!!From the show:
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Deacon the "psychopathic Han Solo", who was promoted to the main cast after season one.
* FanPreferredCouple: So far, the big three are Cole/Cassie, [[HoYay Cole/Ramse]] and [[spoiler:[[FoeYay Deacon/Cassie]]]].
