 "Who's Keyser Söze?!"

"Ah, fuck!"

    • Also, the lineup scene

 "'Gimme da keys, you cocksucker.'"

"English, please."

"What?"

"In English!"

"I said, 'Gimme da keys, you cocksucker.' What da fuck..."

    • McManus during the climax

  (singing) "Old Macdonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O. And on this farm he... shot some guys...." (later) "Oswald was a faggot..."

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Of course, John Ottman's score fits so perfectly because he also edited the movie...
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The director mentioned in more than one article that Benicio del Toro took a throw-away character and, just by giving him an unusual way of speaking, stole every scene he was in!
  • Fridge Brilliance: It's easier to realize that Verbal is lying when he starts to recount incidents where he wasn't there.
    • The back-story Verbal gives Söze is absolutely ludicrous, and on a second viewing you realize that he must have been laughing on the inside 'cause they were buying it.
    • Except that the audience itself is Genre-Blind, and so isn't sure what type of Willing Suspension of Disbelief to do.
  • Fridge Logic: Wait, did Verbal just tell a cop that he killed a man?
    • Presumably, this is one of the things he already gave the details of to the court in order to earn immunity.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Several times Söze is referred to as the Devil. The main character (and one of the prime suspects as to who Söze is) later played the Devil in End of Days.
  • It Was His Sled: Practically everyone, with or without seeing the movie, has heard of the twist.
  • Magnificent Bastard: "Keyser Söze" has become a byword for diabolical masterminds.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Keyser Söze. He scares almost every criminal in the film.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Agent Coulson is a doctor in the San Pedro hospital.
  • WTH? Casting Agency: Pete Postlethwaite, the famous Japanese lawyer. Who looks and speaks with a British Indian accent.
    • It's a case of Fridge Brilliance actually: it's supposed to be one of the subtle clues that Verbal's story is not as it seems.
      • If you can call it subtle. The first time you watch the film, you kind of let him off the hook for it -- of course he'd be a bizarre and mysterious man who goes by an obviously fake name, he's Keyser Söze's lawyer.
