It's just, I've never been pushed into an oven before, and this is the first I've had to sit on a shovel... would you show me how to sit on a shovel? * HenpeckedHusband: Nastenka's father, father is constantly berated and forced to treat his daughter like dirt, until the end.

* CluelessAesop: So, Ivan is turned into a half-man half-bear and has to perform a good deed to change back, but after doing numerous good deeds he remains a bear. Finally, when he's about to give up he realizes the old lady he helped earlier lost her walking stick and goes to return it to her. At the same time, Ivan becomes fully human again. The implication was supposed to be that this was the only true good deed because he was going to return the stick purely because he knew it was the right thing, while all his other good deeds were done only because he thought it would change him back. The problem is that even if he was only doing good for his own reasons he was actually legitimately helping people before, whereas in this case he never actually returned the stick (it turned out to be one of Father Mushrooms illusions and disappeared from his hands as soon as he picked it up). As a result, the message unintentionally comes across as "speculating about good deeds is better than doing them."

* CluelessAesop: So, Ivan is turned into a bear and has to do a good deed to change back. He does numerous good deeds, but never turns back until eventually he realizes the old woman he helped lost he walking stick and goes to return it to her. The reason was supposed to be because he did the other good deeds only so he could change back, this was the first one he did only because he knew it was right. The thing is, he never actually returns the stick - it turns out to have been one of Father Mushroom's illusions and disappears in his hands.

* TheFreelanceShameSquad: {{Trope Namer|s}}. It's sort of impressive how quickly they can mobilize out of nowhere any time Marfushka makes a fool of herself, but they all likely know how pathetic she really is compared to how much her mother embellishes her capabilities.
