* StrawberryShorthand: The town's distinguishing tradition (and one of the things that perks the trio up) is their Strawberry Social -- "We all bake strawberry pies and bring them to the center of town, then we eat the pies...[[AntiClimax and then we go home]]." The queens convince them to go all out and try and range of strawberry themes and dress in glorious bright red.

* DudeLooksLikeALady: John "Chi-Chi" Leguizamo stands out for really looking like an attractive girl. He spent much of his stand-up career impersonating his Latina relatives, so the script played to his strengths.

[[ItGetsBetter She drops the facade in the end]].
