* TheUnfavorite: In one of her few scenes with genuine emotional depth, Lisa implies that she has felt like this for some time, and gloats that Baby is in this position now.
---> '''Lisa''': "You're not Daddy's girl anymore. He listens when ''I'' talk now".
** Baby has a few moments like this, where it's implied that she doesn't think she's as pretty as Lisa--who visibly smirks at her when Robbie hits on her and completely ignores Baby--thus explaining her initial shyness and awkwardness around Johnny.

* AllForNothing: Baby provides an alibi (ahem) for Johnny when he's accused of theft. He gets canned anyway for having a sexual relationship with a guest. Though it wasn't ''all'' for nothing, not for Johnny, since nobody like her ever stood up for someone like him.

* GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion: One of the strongest aversions in cinema. [[spoiler: Penny goes through one without a second thought, even though she's scared. But although the operation turns out to be a back-alley abortion that nearly costs Penny her life, Dr. Houseman saves her, doesn't report her, and even assures her that she'll still be able to have children later, without once blaming her or condemning her for her choice; his criticism is reserved entirely for the guy who got her into the predicament to begin with. The movie even has a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when Penny is shown wordlessly thanking him at the end of the movie]].

Added DiffLines:

* InterclassRomance: Wealthy Baby and wrong-side-of-the-tracks Johnny. To a lesser extent with wealthy Robbie and wrong-side-of-the-tracks Penny.


Added DiffLines:

* TheNotLoveInterest: Penny and Johnny, though they may have been at some point before the story. Despite their flawless chemistry as dance partners, they're nothing more than very good friends.

** [[GainAxing Not that bouncing in place is a bad dance for someone like her.]]
