* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Both Grimm and Rotzinger, enforcing the idea they're NotSoDifferent.


* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: The customers and workers in the back barely register a flicker of interest at the sight of a clown with a gun and "dynamite" strapped to him walking into the bank and announcing that he's robbing it:
-->'''Grimm:''' This is a robbery!\\

Added DiffLines:

** Grimm in his bulky clown outfit and numerous balloons are just one more hassle New York straphangers have to deal with.

* MoneyIsNotPower: The bank robbery has a rich yuppie as one of the hostages, and he tries to buy his way out (or at least getting preferential treatment) with his super-expensive watch and promising to pay up. Grimm doesn't cares. This same trope happens to him later on when he can't convince the bus driver to accept the hefty bill he's trying to pay the bus fare with, forcing him to race to a nearby store (and dodge the cops) so he can get exact change.

* GenreSavvy:
** Grimm has clearly thought quite long and hard about how to pull off a foolproof bank robbery (without anyone getting hurt, no less) and knows exactly how the police are likely to act at any given point. It's just a shame that he didn't put as much thought into how the ''getaway'' might go wrong...
** Rotzinger in turn is pretty savvy about things, although he finds himself getting wires crossed as the evening progresses.


* TheCaper: Kind of a subversion, in that it's mainly about the aftermath of said caper.

** At the airport, while Rotzinger and his underlings are strategising how to arrest the bank robbers, through the window we see said bank robbers being ferried into the airport via a baggage truck.

Added DiffLines:

** The bank robbery, hostage scenario, and the not-so-simple act of making a getaway could be seen as a reference to the similar story of ''Film/DogDayAfternoon''.

Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: InUniverse, Phyllis and Loomis make themselves into one so the other hostages demand they be the ones to be released first.

* TheMafiaTheMafia: One of the many obstacles in the getaway is Grimm and his friends running into a mafioso meet-up. Grimm manages to convince them that he's a mafioso himself to prevent a potential witness slaying (with ''him'' as one of the "witnesses").
