* GenreSavvy: Rose is right about ''everything'', save assuming someone died when Cosmo and Loretta wake her up in the middle of the night. She groans when she sees Loretta taking after Cosmo, and is completely unsurprised by ''anything''.
-->'''Rose:''' ''(meeting Johnny for the first time)'' Nice to meet you. ''(checks under his collar and finds exactly what she expected)'' You've got a love bite on your neck.

Added DiffLines:

* CallBack:
** Both of the proposals are "in front of all these people."
** When Rose asks Loretta if she's in love with Johnny, she's happy to hear Loretta only ''likes'' him. When Rose asks Loretta if she's in love with Ronnie, she sadly says, "Oh, gee, that's too bad" when Loretta says she loves him completely.

* WinWinEnding: Everyone gets what they want. Johnny is initially depressed, but Grandpa points out he is now a part of the family, and that perks Johnny right up, who joins in on the toasting of Ronnie and Loretta.

* AnimalMotif: Ronny resembles a wolf before he cleans up for the opera, which makes sense since Loretta calls him a wolf and the original title of the film was ''The Bride and the Wolf''.
