* AllMenArePerverts: The basic premise of the movie. As soon as the wives are away, most men ogle the first female they see.



* AmusingInjuries: Richard keeps getting a crick in his neck.

to:

* AmusingInjuries: Richard keeps getting a crick in his neck. And tripping on Ricky's roller-skates.


Added DiffLines:

** CastingGag: Then again, considering [[NoNameGiven The Girl is unnamed]] throughout the film (and the credits), it's possible [[AsHimself the character in question really]] ''[[AsHimself is]]'' MarilynMonroe.


Added DiffLines:

* GoodBadGirl: The Girl is implied to be this, since she's genuinely sweet, compassionate, and understanding, but she didn't like living in a club since they had a strict 1:30am curfew. She also implies that she gets marriage proposals all the time from various beaus, but she doesn't to settle down yet. That's why she prefers the company of married men--[[IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow no matter how crazy things get]], they'll never ask her to ''[[ExactWords marry]]'' them.


Added DiffLines:

* GreenEyedMonster: Richard imagines his wife as this (she's not), although he is actually crazy jealous of his wife hanging out with a good-looking friend of hers (who happens to be a romance novelist)--to the point that he goes into a jealous rage and ''punches'' the guy at the end.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceGuysFinishLast: Richard thinks this about himself under all of his {{Imagine Spot}}s, but The Girl convinces him otherwise.

The 1955 Creator/BillyWilder-directed film that marked the arguable high point of MarilynMonroe's popularity - and a fair contender for the title of the most famous American film [[PopculturalOsmosis you've probably never seen]].

Actually based on a 1952 stage comedy in which Ewell also appeared - and which included an actual extramarital affair between Richard Sherman and The Girl, which was censored out in the film version.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: A number of examples, including some where the radar apparently wasn't working at all!

* FollowTheLeader: At the time, very few movies opened with ArtisticTitle sequences. Saul Bass supplied the zany [[http://www.artofthetitle.com/title/the-seven-year-itch/ credits sequence]] here, and its success with audiences pretty much made his career. And in the 1960s and '70s, it seemed like ''every'' movie comedy opened with a cartoonish sequence of some sort.
