* In the musical version of ''Film/TheProducers'', FlamboyantGay stage director Roger De Bris sings a number called "Keep It Gay". Fifty years ago, a RodgersAndHammerstein musical had a song with the same title which was not using it as a DoubleEntendre.

* As late as 1961, there could be a Broadway musical titled ''The Gay Life'' without reference to homosexuality. A few later productions retitled it ''The High Life''.

* There's a scene in a play I saw a long time ago that I think was called "Young Rube" which was about the life of Rube Goldberg, and his imaginary friend Boob McNutt. Rube at one point tells of Boob's antics to a friend, who goes out and tells... a bar full of sailors, "Everyone should listen to their Boob!" As expected, everyone suddenly tries to lean their head down to their chest.

* The entire English Army is in a state of bedraggled gayness in Henry V. The Shakespeare quote is from ''King Henry V'', Act 4, scene 3. In which King Henry is rejecting surrender terms offered by the French to his bedraggled tiny Army shortly before the CurbStompBattle at Agincourt.

\n* The song "I Don't Need Anything But You", a [[ParentalLoveSong duet]] between Annie and Daddy Warbucks from ''Theatre/{{Annie}}'' featured the line "We're tying a knot / they never can sever". To modern ears, "tying a knot" mainly refers to marriage - [[{{Squick}} not a good lyric choice for]] [[ParentalIncest a father and his adopted daughter]] [[UnfortunateImplications to sing together]]. This made things problematic for [[Film/{{Annie2014}} the 2014 film remake of the musical]] when the lyric was left unchanged while some other lyrics that would be subject to ValuesDissonance were cut and/or changed.
