* LoveAtFirstSight: Essentially Chris and Marisa's reaction when they meet.



** The scene where a guest exposes himself to Marisa and Stephanie becomes a lot less funny with the revelation that miads often have to deal with this kind of behavior.

* BilingualBackfire: Christopher pulls this on the two elderly French women who are gossiping about him and Marisa. They call him a "pig", even though he has ''politely'' invited them to join them for a walk.



* InterclassRomance: Wealthy, Kennedy-{{Expy}} Christopher with Bronx native hotel maid Marisa.



* MyBelovedSmother: Marissa's mother, though she seems to be the type who wants to hold her child ''back'', condescendingly discouraging her from applying for a management position, as well as from pursuing a relationship with Chris.

* ArtisticLicense: A business version. Marisa finds another housekeeping job quite quickly, which is highly unlikely given why she was fired from her last one, not to mention the ensuing public scandal.



* FakeAmerican: Ralph Fiennes as Christopher Marshall



** Caroline is clearly worried that she's becoming too old to ever get married
** Stephanie seems to fear she is not getting any younger.
** Rachel appears to be in complete denial that she is already past her prime, though her unmariability might step from her bitchiness.

* SpoiledSweet: Caroline. She comes across as a bit of a vapid airhead, but seems nice enough. While her complaint to the management does inadvertently get Marissa fired, she wasn't being deliberately mean but instead justifiably upset about someone wearing her clothes and pretending to be her.

* [[ChekhovsGun Chekhov's Necklace]]: The beautiful Harry Winston wreath Marisa wears at the ball is what gets her caught. Caroline admires it on the ballgown wearing socialite that she meets at the ball--and recognizes it on the sweatshirt wearing woman she sees sneaking out of Chris's room the next morning.



* ClarkKenting[=/=]PaperThinDisguise: No one who knows Marisa under one identity recognizes her in the other--Chris doesn't recognize the Dolce & Gabbana-clad socialite as the woman who was cleaning his bathroom the day before (granted, he only saw her briefly), her own boss doesn't recognize her (again, granted, she's wearing sunglasses and keeps her face turned away so as to avoid this) and neither does anyone else, despite her picture being on the front page of the newspaper by the next day--her BFF Stephanie needs to be told by Marissa herself that it's her. Caroline's the only one who comes even remotely close, and even she can't figure it out, despite having met Marissa several times before their encounter at the ball.
