* AffectionateNickname: Hans, in one scene, calls his fiancée Frieda "Friedchen," which is a portmanteau of her real name and the German word ''liebchen'' (beloved).

* ElephantInTheLivingRoom: Nobody mentions that Daisy and Violet are conjoined twins, not even when the fiance of one meets the fiance of the other.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: While not evil, Roscoe was a bit of a jerk, and hung out with Hercules and mocked Josephine Joseph at the start. But toward the end, after it's learned that Hercules probably (and of course, did) have a hand in poisoning Hans, we see Roscoe and Hercules together in the same place, and this time Roscoe just glares at Hercules, says nothing, and walks away from him.

* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: An inversion (in which a villainous character directs this towards the sympathetic characters) during the famous "gooble gable, one of us" scene. Even though Cleo [[BitchInSheepsClothing (successfully) ingratiates herself with the freaks]] in order to scam Hans out of his fortune, she simply cannot hide her revulsion when they demonstrate their genuine acceptance of her.
