- Anvilicious: The line "[God] loves you just as much as He did when you were a baby," is repeated twice by Elder Farrell and Holly. The movie ends with Farrell crying over the Baby Jesus from a Living Nativity exhibit to show that God still loves him after he messed up.
- Awesome Music: The music by Ben Carson (no, not that one) is both catchy and powerful in all the right places.
- Ear Worm: Do you want a... REVOLUTION?! (WOO-WOO!)
- Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The movie drops an anvil on the notion among some Latter-day Saints that for a Mormon missionary come home in a casket than to return dishonored. Farrell says his father told him this, and Lozano tries to refute it, but Farrell takes it literally and tries to kill himself. In the DVD commentary, Richard Dutcher says this was something he actually heard parents tell their departing missionaries, and he wanted to use the film to help dispel this cultural attitude.
YMMV / States of Grace
