1* Benedict's [[EvilGloating monologue]] near the end of the film: -->'''Benedict''': (gun at the ready) Think of villains, Jack! You want Dracula? Drac''[[ItsPronouncedTroPAY oo]]''la? Hang on. (pulls out ticket stub) ''I'll fetch him.'' Dracula? (scoff; puts stub away) I can get ''King Kong!'' (BLAM!) We'll have a nightmare with [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]]! Have a surprise party for UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler! ''[[Film/SilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]] can do the catering.'' And then we'll all have a christening for Film/RosemarysBaby! (BLAM!) All I have to do is snap my fingers and they'll be here! They're ''lining up'' to get here, and do you know ''why'' Jack? Should I ''tell you'' why? Hmm? Because here, in this world, ''the Bad Guys can win!''** And again a second later, when the gun clicks empty:--->'''Jack''': Did you make a movie mistake? [[BottomlessMagazines You forgot to reload the damn gun!]]--->'''Benedict''': No, Jack. [[GenreSavvy I just left one chamber empty.]]* And then one for Jack:-->'''Jack''': [[PreMortemOneLiner No sequel for you.]]* And earlier, him killing The Ripper again.* Whitney as a character in general. [[ActionGirl She takes very much after her father]], wearing similar clothing (albeit more [[{{Fanservice}} fanservice-y]]) to him and having a passion for firearms. Later in the movie, when you think she's just the damsel in distress, she proves just how capable she is by taking out a mook and stealing his gun in ''seconds''. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen It makes you wonder just how cool the unaltered version of Jack Slater IV]] [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot would have been like with her as the designated sidekick.]]* Jack wins a GameOfChicken even though he's in the real world because of AwesomeByAnalysis. He knew the model of ''his'' car had an airbag while his opponent's model didn't.
