* {{Adorkable}}: Selena's nervous yet earnest attempt to hold a press conference in Spanish charms the media.

* FauxFluency: Selena was not fluent in Spanish, so she had to learn her Tejano music phonetically when she was younger (she lampshades how ridiculous the lyrics are when translated to English). However, Abraham pressed the importance of her knowing both languages in order to break through, and after she became popular in the Tejano genre, her English command made it easy for her to crossover to the American mainstream. There's a scene where she holds a press conference in Spanish, and after trying to sum up her feelings in that language, she stumbled and finishes her sentence with "excited", which makes everyone laugh, but with her, not at her. * ForegoneConclusion: Since this is a biopic of a deceased person, the story's end is sadly inevitable.

* SecretRelationship: When Abraham rejects Selena and Chris dating, and kicks him out of the group, they continue to date in secret before eloping. It stops being a secret when news leak of the marriage, forcing them to face their family.
