Added DiffLines:

* FlyInTheSoup: At the beginning of the film, Victoria plots to use a cockroach she found in her room to scam a restaurant--she's flat broke and hasn't eaten in days (her other idea having been to sleep with her landlord for some spaghetti and meatballs). Toddy drops in and decides to help, but the manager and waiter have both seen this trick before and argue until the roach escapes and crawls up a different woman's leg. In the ensuing mass panic, the restaurant is wrecked, and Victoria and Toddy make their escape.

* ChekhovsSkill: Victoria's ability to hit a glass-shattering note. When the owner of Chez Lui watches her "Shady Dame" number later, it confirms his suspicions that "Victor" is the woman who auditioned for his club.
* ComebackTomorrow: After Toddy says that the wine looks like horse urine--and on the waiter's protest, that it wasn't a real horse but two waiters in costume--the waiter calmly says "I shall think of a sharp retort while I fetch your roast chicken." However, Toddy's reply gives him an opportunity to make one right away:
-->'''Toddy:''' It's a wise man who knows when he is beaten.\\
'''Waiter:''' And it is a moron who gives advice to a horse's ass.



* EurekaMoment: When Victoria sends Richard packing while wearing his clothes (ItMakesSenseInContext), Toddy has his brilliant idea for how she can work as a singer again.



* HeyYouHaymaker: When Toddy's JerkAss ex, Richard, opens the wardrobe to take his clothes back, Victoria greets him with a fist to his already-bruised face--having donned his clothing in lieu of her ruined dress.



* ServileSnarker: The waiter at the restaurant Victoria tries to con a meal out of, who makes his opinion on her huge meal and dining companion (after Toddy joins her) quite plain.



* SoapPunishment: King washes Norma's mouth out with soap after she warns he might become "impudent"[[note]]impotent[[/note]] from thoughts of Victor, driving her into such a rage that she attacks with a ''halberd'' which, decorative or not, still breaks through a door.



* SweetPollyOliver: Victoria spends most of the story as "Victor"

* BlatantLies: Toddy deliberately gives Victor an obviously fake backstory as a disinherited Polish aristocrat named "Count Victor Grazinski" under the assumption that once people see through this lie, they won't look for another.
-->'''"Victor":''' They'll know he's a phony!\\
'''Toddy:''' Exactly.\\
'''"Victor":''' What?\\
'''Toddy:''' They'll know ''he's'' a phony.



* DidntSeeThatComing: When King, Squash, and Norma see Victoria's first performance, King is smitten by the beautiful female singer and Norma isn't pleased with this, then at the end, Victoria removes the wig and appears to be "Victor." King is shocked and Norma just laughs.
