*TheMuse: Holly for Paul. Paul reportedly published a well-received collection of short stories in 1956, but has not managed to complete any work since then and seems to have given up on his writing career. Shortly after meeting Holly (and after she deduces that he is lying about working on a novel), he starts writing a new story based on his impressions of her. He gets it published and earns 50 dollars in payment. Later in the film (after an apparent Time Skip), Paul has managed to get several new stories published in at least two major publications.

* SpySpeak: Sally's "weather reports" which Holly passes forward. Basically Holly is getting paid to visit imprisoned crime lord Sally Tomato every weak, receive from him strange weather reports about Palermo (in Sicily), Cuba, and New Orleans, and pass forward the reports to Sally's supposed lawyer. Later in the film, Holly is arrested for participation in a drug smuggling ring. The weather reports were actually coded messages, concerning shipments of drugs.

Curiously at this point in the film, Holly and Paul know each other for a few hours, have barely interacted, and Paul is naked (after having sex with another woman). It is Holly who insists that they are friends.

**A male example of the trope appears in the character Rusty Trawler. While once one of the richest men in the United States, he is secretly broke during his appearances in the film. A newspaper reports his marriage to a particularly wealthy woman, and Holly casually explains that Rusty was marrying her for her money.

This is well-known for being the movie in which Hepburn [[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame wears a fabulous Givenchy dress and holds a cigarette in a holder]], and for introducing Music/HenryMancini's Oscar-winning song "Moon River". In this version Holly probably isn't a hooker (though she does seek out wealthy men to have flings with), while the gay writer is now a straight gigolo--or something close to it--named Paul Varjak who has a tumultuous relationship with Holly.
