* "The Lees of Old Virginia." Franklin's wheedling, Lee serving [[LargeHam a large helping of ham]] quite generous-''Lee'', and Adams as a wholly unwilling participant in the entire number. After it's over, he calls in "the most revolting display I ever witnessed." Not Lee, ''Franklin'', for inciting it.
** It gets even better in the movie: when Lee returns for his unexpected reprise, Adams winds up falling into the fountain.

* "But Mr. Adams."

to:

* The entirety of "But Mr. Adams."Adams", the song where the Founding Fathers shove the writing of their lame excuse to delay Congress from taking a vote (today more commonly known as The Declaration of Independence) on Thomas Jefferson, but the ending is absolutely hilarious. Also, any production that does not include ludicrous dancing is not doing it right.
-->'''Jefferson:''' Mr. Adams! Damn you, Mr. Adams!\\
You are [[PhraseCatcher obnoxious and disliked]], that cannot be denied!\\
Once again, you stand between me and my lovely bride...\\
'''Franklin, Livingston, and Sherman:''' Love-lee briiiiiide...\\
'''Jefferson:''' Ohhh, Mr. Adams!\\
You are driving me to homicide!\\
'''F, L, & S:''' ''HOMICIDE! HOMICIDE!''\\
'''Adams:''' QUIET! Jefferson! Mr. Jefferson!\\
'''F, L, & S:''' We may see murderrr! Yeeee-eeeeeet...!
* Richard Henry Lee leaving and coming back to sing his theme song, and Adams and Franklin's reaction to him.
-->'''John Adams:''' That was the most revolting display I have ever witnessed.\\
'''Benjamin Franklin:''' They're warm-blooded people, Virginians.\\
'''John Adams:''' Not him, Franklin, ''you''!
