* UnproblematicProstitution: While actually averting this trope completely, the movie managed to become the most famous example of the trope due to people's extremely low expectations for the treatment of sex worker characters. To the dismay and moral outrage of many viewers, the movie averted the [[UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode once upon a time mandatory]] tradition that TheHookerWithAHeartOfGold must be killed off before the story is over.

Added DiffLines:

* MistakenForJunkie: Edward interrupts Vivian in the bathroom and thinks she's doing drugs. Turns out she's only flossing strawberry seeds from her teeth. (May also be a CallBack, as the original script wrote Vivian as a drug addict.)

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: The scene at the racetrack where Vivian shouts at one of the horses is very similar to one in Film/MyFairLady, where Eliza Doolittle does the same. Vivian does not say "Come on Dover, move your bloomin' arse", but comes close.
