** Frida's very first line, as she's [[ItMakesSenseInContext being carried in her bed to her gallery show]].
--> "Careful, guys. This corpse is still breathing. Try to get me there in one piece. "
** Diego has his moments as well, such as when he tells Frida that he has no emotional connection to the models he sleeps with.
--> "It was just a fuck. I've given more affection in a handshake."

* MySisterIsOffLimits: Frida is at first reluctant but eventually complacent with the fact that Diego sleeps with many of his models even after she and him and married. When one of those models turns out to be one of Frida's sisters, it's the beginning of the end of her marriage to Diego.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: A slight case. Kahlo wasn't ugly, but she certainly didn't look like Salma Hayek either. Yay! With a unibrow. Wha? And a thin but prominent ''mustache''. [[AlwaysMale Oh, God...]] You may hear many jokes about Alfred Molina being too handsome to portray Diego Rivera... half of those are being serious.

Added DiffLines:

* YourCheatingHeart: A constant fault in Diego's character to the point where his adulterous habits is more of a "don't say I didn't warn you" deal. He ends up crossing a line when he sleeps with [[spoiler: Frida's sister.]] The trope is downplayed on Frida's side as it mentions little about her affairs with men in her marriage, though Diego did not mind her affairs with women.
