* Brawn Hilda's insistence on taking lots of bows, though very funny and seemingly annoying, actually gave the family more time to escape before their names were called as winners. Max plays to the audience for comedy and isn't in a rush to force her off the stage.

* If you know anything about UsefulNotes/NaziGermany and what happens to Austria after the Anschluss, you sort of have to feel sorry for the Baroness, who is demonized for trying not to get into trouble with Germany, and Rolfe, who will likely die a soldier in the war (especially if you subscribe to the idea that he was naive enough to be brainwashed into the Nazi Party, not realizing his actions would lead to the deaths of Leisl and her family). Honestly, every character villainous or otherwise (but presumed villainous for complying with the Nazis rather than escaping Von Trapp-style) is likely to face hardship or outright death in the coming war.

* Part of the reason that the Captain's first rendition of "Edelweiss" is such a heartwarming moment is that it's essentially the Captain--the famously patriotic military man--expressing his love for his homeland through song, after spending the entire movie insisting that soldiers have no room for music in their lives. The Captain's defining personality traits (discipline, hardiness, patriotism, etc.) never really change, but he learns a new way to express them.

* When the nuns sing the reprise of "Maria" during her wedding to Captain Von Trapp, the lyrics take on a whole new meaning: He is able to do what the nuns weren't, to encourage her to stay with him ("how do you make her stay and listen to all you say/how do you keep a wave upon the sand?") because she ''wanted'' to rather than out of a sense of obligation.

** Max's fate is made a bit clearer in the 2013 live version, when two Nazis restrain him after seeing that the Von Trapps have disappeared. We don't see what happens to Max after that, but [[NightmareFuel the poor guy's fate isn't going to be a happy one.]]

* So what happened to Max afterwards? While losing a submarine captain wasn't a massive defeat, the Nazis were infamously petty. At the very least, he probably lost his cushy job, and at worst... well, we've seen the kinds of prison camps the Nazis ran...
