* HeirClubForMen: DoubleSubversion. In a deleted scene from the film, we see the official reading of the Baron's will, which Frederick cannot attend. In the main will, the Baron leaves everything to two cousins (one male, one female), a niece, a nephew, and a "bosom friend" and her daughter, in equal shares - '''unless''', in the unlikely event that his great-grandson Frederick (only 10 at the time of the will's creation) chooses to go into medicine,''' ''and'' ''' becomes a respected expert in his field of study. Needless to say, the attending members of the family are not pleased to discover that the reason Frederick is absent is his obligation to give a lecture called "Function Areas of the Cerebrum with Relation to the Skull."

** Played straight however, in that the Baron gives everything to Frederick, without thinking to bequeath
anything to his granddaughter.granddaughter, Frederick's mother.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The conversation aboard the train is almost certainly about the old couple's son [[spoiler: masturbating]].
** So many {{Double Entendre}}s and sex references, but all subtly enough to get away with a PG rating (although likely would have been PG-13 had that been established at the time).

* AnywhereButTheirLips: It's only in their first scene together that Elizabeth says "Not on the lips," to Freddy, and the reason is that she doesn't want her makeup smudged.
** Subverted in that she doesn't seem to want to be touched ''anywhere'', lest she mess up her hair, her nails, her dress, etc. In the end she and Frederick say goodbye by shaking elbows. She even flinches when he blows her a kiss.
*** And right after all that... the train rolls past and she's enveloped in a billowing cloud of black smoke.

* BerserkButton: Mentioning Frederick's relation to a famous cuckoo is not a good idea.
** He's also not tolerant of mistakes, like putting in Abby Normal's brain.
