** The first "dance" acted out by Sweet Pea is [[spoiler:Babydoll's lobotomy]], which she stops because she doesn't think it is sexy. [[spoiler:She removed her Babydoll wig to reveal that she is sitting in the lobotomy chair, suggesting that she is the protagonist]].

Also, [[spoiler: her line about a lobotomized vegetable not being sexy comes back in the end, when post-lobotomy, Blue is too freaked out by UncannyValley Babydoll to find her sexy]].

Added DiffLines:

* CutleryEscapeAid: One of the things Babydoll and her friends steal when planning their escape is a kitchen knife from the chef. Though [[spoiler: Rocket gets stabbed to death in the attempt, or maybe she's still alive in the asylum, it's ambiguous.]]

The film was highly stylized and self-aware, dealing with escapism in all its different forms, referencing practically every movie and video game under the sun, and making some [[YouBastard interesting]] [[MaleGaze commentary]] about the audience's [[{{Fanservice}} expectations]].

* WhoWritesThisCrap: Sweet Pea's meta takedown of the film's plot, as noted in ForeShadowing and AuthorAvatar:
-->This is a joke, right? I get the sexy little schoolgirl. I even get the helpless mental patient, right? That can be hot. But what is this? Lobotomized vegetable? How about something a little more commercial, for God's sakes?
