Has nothing to do with the rolls or the pops, though the TitleTheme does say, "Roll, Tootsie, roll!"

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: We only see Sandy again once after she and Michael break up, when she sees Michael reveal herself on live TV and screams in horror, but the movie doesn't seem to care what happens to her in the end, despite getting the worst treatment out of any of the major characters. The only hint that she and Michael have reconciled is [[spoiler: a billboard announcing that they're starring together in Jeff's play.]]

She announces to Michael that despite Michael seriously fucking her over (for a part she'd never have been able to get), she'll do Jeff's play because she's a professional. (Translation: She's a desperate out-of-work actress.) The only hint that she and Michael have reconciled is [[spoiler: a billboard announcing that they're starring together in Jeff's play.]]

* InternalReveal: The big reveal for both the fictional soap and the actual movie, when Michael takes off his wig and many of his feminine touches and reveals himself to be a man during a live taping of ''Southwest General''. The movie's audience, of course, has known all along.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The character of George was written and/or cast with Creator/SydneyPollack, the director, playing the part at [[Creator/DustinHoffman Hoffman]]'s suggestion, to incorporate some of the real-life tension between the two of them into the movie itself.
