* HandOrObjectUnderwear: Morelli barges in on Stephanie [[ShowerOfAwkward in the shower]], causing her to [[NakedFreakOut cover herself in panic.]] He gives her a ModestyTowel and handcuffs her to the shower rod, while he searches her apartment for his car keys. When he can't find them, he comes back and [[ShamefulStrip takes away her towel]], leaving her naked and handcuffed to her shower rod. She has to call Ranger to get her out, while she's barely covering herself with the curtain.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationAmalgamation: Several plot elements introduced in ''Two for the Dough'' (such as Big Blue and [[spoiler: Lula starting work at the Bond's Office]]) were incorporated into this film. References were also made to Ranger expanding into securities, which was introduced later in the books.
** Katherine Heigl and Janet Evanovich both suggested this would've been taken further had more movies been made - since the series was too large to realistically film each individual entry, they felt compositing various elements from the books into several films was the most feasible route.

* AdaptationDistillation: [[spoiler: Benito Ramirez's attack on Lula is far more violent in the book. He leaves her lying naked and battered on Stephanie's fire escape and she spends the remainder of the novel in a coma. In the movie, she is beaten and thrown out of a truck, and is released from the hospital shortly thereafter.]]
