Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag:
** In "The Ring of the Nibelungs: An Analysis", Siegfried's tendency to run into women he unbeknownst to him are his aunts.
** Also, whenever a character or plot element reappears after Wagner has gone an entire opera without mentioning them, Russell pausing to check with the audience that they still remember that character or plot element.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentheticalSwearing: In "The Ring of the Nibelungs: An Analysis", when Siegfried meets the Gibichungs, Russell notes that Gutrune is a Gibich and that her half-brother Hagen is a son of a Gibich, with the emphasis very much on the second syllable.


Added DiffLines:

* StandardSnippet: In "The Ring of the Nibelungs: An Analysis", when Alberich puts a curse on the Ring, she plays the standard snippet that usually accompanies a DastardlyWhiplash up to no good, then apologizes -- "That's the wrong curse, isn't it?"

* AntiLoveSong: "Miserable," a TorchSong parody on how awful it is to be happy ''without'' her lover and how she'd much rather be miserable (or as she renders it, "mizz-urr-ubb-ull") ''with'' him.
