* ThongOfShielding: The dancers costumes have thumb-width seats. The FCC censor was more upset about one of them having a nail-clipping worth of areola visible waaaay up close than these.

* HonestAdvisor: Frank fires and humiliates Elliot for attempting to be this, giving honest and concerned negative feedback to his ridiculous ad campaign among Frank's other sniveling [[YesMan yes men.]] Heartwarmingly, at the end of the movie [[spoiler: when he offers to give Elliot his office, Elliot replies that he doesn't like his office yet now Frank ''loves'' the fact that Elliot disagrees with him.]]

** The Ghost Of Christmas Present describes Grace's son's inability to speak as a result of seeing his father died, and that he "Drifted away, like ''Literature/SleepingBeauty''." Carol Kane played one of the good fairies in the ''FaerieTaleTheatre'' rendition of ''Sleeping Beauty'', so this is also an ActorAllusion.

* ExecutiveMeddling: InUniverse. Frank's boss bumps into him in the hallway, and orders him to put mice and/or squirrels in his production of ''A Christmas Carol'' to appeal to cats, thinking that pet-oriented shows will be the Next Big Thing.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Frank is an incredibly self-centered man, but as the film progresses, has several instances of him showing a heart even prior to his epiphany. Prior to meeting the Ghost of Christmas Past, he dumps water on a waiter, thinking he was on fire. Afterwards, he makes some friends with the homeless people at Claire's Operation Reachout branch, even pretending to be Richard Burton in Hamlet for them. Lastly after seeing the Ghost of Christmas Present, he was devastated that one of the homeless men he met was found dead in the sewer he landed in. [[HowDareYouDieOnMe He even berates the guy for not staying at Operation Reachout:]]
