Added DiffLines:

* AlwaysALiveTransmission:. Mitch and Sam interrupt a live ad for a car dealership by revealing that the cars are all "loaded with dead hookers!" (actually, Sam and Mitch hired a bunch of prostitutes to play dead), then use the stolen spotlight to advertise their own revenge-for-hire business. The commercial actually earns them a bunch of new customers.

Added DiffLines:

* FailedAttemptAtDrama: When Sam provokes a bar brawl, Jimmy decides to enhance the fighting atmosphere with some appropriate music:
-->'''Mike:''' Looks like there's gonna be a brawl. You playin' something good?\\
'''Jimmy:''' '''''Hell yeah!''''' [[Music/TheRollingStones Rollin' Stones]]! "Street-Fightin' Man"! G! SEVEN!\\
'''Mike:''' ... You just hit G-''8''.\\
''["Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" starts playing, to Jimmy's embarrassment.]''


* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: A classic example; Mitch reacts to being {{Prison Rape}}d as if he were a teacher chiding a gang of troublesome students for throwing water balloons at him.

* TheCameo: Creator/DonRickles as the theater owner. Also, Creator/AdamSandler as {{Satan}}, and Gary Coleman as himself. Oh, also, John Goodman as the mayor and Rebecca Romijn as the Bearded Lady.

Added DiffLines:

* SidetrackedByTheAnalogy: A rare example in which it's the character actually making the analogy who gets sidetracked, to the point where the analogy isn't as much of an analogy as he thought it was:
-->'''Dr. Farthing:''' Let me ask you something; are you a betting man?\\
'''Sam:''' I dunno. I guess.\\
'''Dr. Farthing:''' Well, if someone were taking odds on your father's bout with death, I'd bet everything I own... on death. It's a good bet. Chances are, he'll probably die.\\
''[Sam collapses in grief]''\\
'''Mitch:''' Jesus, Doc, couldn't you have prepared him a little for that?\\
'''Dr. Farthing:''' Well I... kind of thought I ''did'', with that whole betting analogy.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGamblingAddict: Dr. Farthing even made a bet before ''Film/RockyIII'' came out that Rocky would lose in the end. [[note]]Actually not quite as stupid as it sounds, since at that point his record was one loss and one win.[[/note]]
