* When I first became a fan of the ''Rocky Horror Show'', I simply saw the song "Sweet Transvestite" as a catchy VillainSong. A few years later, I listened closely to the lyrics and had a fridge brilliance moment concerning the line ''"Well you got caught with a flat. Well...''[[note]]How 'bout this![[/note]] ''how 'bout that"''. The way Frank N. Furter says it in such a smug tone pretty much implies that '''he''' was the one who caused Brad and Janet to get a flat tire in the first place.-baronobeefdip

** Even better, when watching, it seems that Tim Curry is being a large ham, breaking the fourth wall ("Well how 'bout that?" as the perfect example)... Until you reach 'I'm Going Home', and it's revealed that it's FRANK that's being the ham and looking at the audience. He's playing to the non-existent crowd the whole time! Alternatively, Frank is breaking the fourth wall, and just doesn't realise he's in a movie rather than the stage show. Normally, there is a crowd out there applauding Frank at the end!

* Related to the above, Frank is [[spoiler:murdered]] by his "faithful handyman." In other words, ''TheButlerDidIt!"[[note]]And humorously enough, this wouldn't be the last time Creator/TimCurry was in [[Film/{{Clue}} a movie which played with this trope]][[/note]].

* As mentioned in the DVDCommentary, the dinner party seems rather... off. Everyone has way too many utensils, none of the cups match and Riff Raff and Magenta just haphazardly drop the platter with their food on the table. Of course they wouldn't know how to give a real dinner party: they're ''aliens''.

* In this movie Frank has heard of Dr Scott and know he's a german scientist working for an American UFO bureau even though they've never met before. He also accuses Brad of being part of the bureau after he finds out Brad and Scott know each other. Scott then says the government has been working on their own transducer for some time. In [[http://www.rockymusic.org/showdoc/revenge-of-the-old-queen.php the draft script]] for RevengeOfTheOldQueen we find out that Transylvanians have infiltrated the bureau, the bureau's leader, Ray Ambo knows about them but the agents don't. Ray has a transducer hidden in his private bathroom and Brad's brother works for the bureau. This explains why Frank knows all about the individual agents but they don't know about him.

*** The true horror hasn't even been hit still. Do you really think that Janet is the ''only'' human female Frank had unprotected sex with? Going by what could be expected of him that number could actually be quite high.

* "I Can Make You a Man" doesn't just mean that Dr. Frank turn you into a hunk--he'll ''build'' a man for you like he created Rocky.

* Another attempt at a sequel, ''Rocky Horror Shows His Heels'' would have had a resurrected Frank using "Fairy dust" to temporarily turn the people of Denton into Transylvanians. It's possible he used something similar on everybody during the floor show as most of them were angry at him before he turned them into statues.


Added DiffLines:

*** A common interpretation is that these statues were former attempts at Rocky.
