* When Dora Bailey announces Cosmo Brown's arrival, and the crowd stops cheering halfway through the cheer as they realize they all ''have no idea whatsoever who he actually is.''

Added DiffLines:

* Just how gleeful Don is upon finding out Kathy's weak spot. After she punctured his pride and shut him down earlier he is hilariously petty in how much he's enjoying her discomfort.

** To entertain elderly guests, the British Royal Family would have reels of their favourite silent films sent to the Palace/Castle. Often visiting at the latter was Princess Alice of Greece - the mother of the present Queen's husband (Philip, Duke of Edinburgh). Deaf from birth, she was a highly-skilled lip-reader - and could do so in five languages. She would add to the entertainment by deciphering what the actors were actually saying to each other - in one case,during a dramatic clasp with apparent declarations of eternal love, the leading man was in fact telling his co-star that he was going to be evicted from his apartment if he missed that week's rent.

** There's also the greater implication by the scene that this is stuff Don and Cosmo do ''all the time'' when they're bored.

Added DiffLines:

** Lina keeps lapsing in and out of her Brooklyn accent, and can never quite seem to aim her lines into the microphone. Don somehow manages to be even ''worse'', comically strutting around the set, turning the melodramatics UpToEleven, and addressing nearly all his dialogue to the camera instead of Lina.

* (''about Lina'') "She can't act, she can't sing and she can't dance. A triple threat!"
** If you weren't aware, in the entertainment industry a "triple threat" is someone who actually ''can'' act, sing, and dance. More information at TheOtherWiki [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_threat here]]. Cosmo is inverting the definition for humorous effect.

Added DiffLines:

* After the whole sequence detailing Don's idea for the number "Broadway Melody" -- a massive, show-stopping production with huge sets, lavish costuming, and an army of dancers -- it cuts back to Don finishing explaining it to R.F. R.F. only replies that [[SeparateSceneStorytelling "I can't quite visualize it"]], lampshading that it would probably look much better on film. (Somewhat of an in-joke, as well: this was a frequent comment made by Arthur Freed himself during pitches.)
