* From the stage musical, "Watch What Happens", where Katherine keeps alternating between singing about what a great story it's going to be, and how she has no idea how she's going to put it together. Often alternating between the two themes in the middle of a rapid-fire verse. Any writer, or really anyone facing some great task, can get a sympathetic laugh from this song.

It only becomes funnier when she segues onto a train of thought revolving around her BelligerentSexualTension with Jack.
* The reprise of the song is similarly funny, now a duet with Jack and David arguing over whether they should quit or keep fighting after the strike takes a turn for the worse:
-->'''Davey:''': Exactly\\
So here's how it goes once we win\\
And we will be winning\\

-->'''Jack:''' [[FlatWhat We'll be what?]]
-->[A few verses later...]
-->'''Jack:''' Dave, what the hell?\\
did they bust up your brains or somethin'?\\
[[SophisticatedAsHell As I recall Dave we all got our asses kicked]]

* The many ways they [[JustForPun make puns]] off of Pulitzer's newspaper being called The World. At one point, even Pulitzer unintentionally invokes AGodAmI when ranting about how "...when I created The World..."
