* HotGuysAreBastards: Anne is not blind to the fact that Gilbert is very handsome (and notices he becomes moreso as the series progresses), but that doesn't mean she doesn't still hate his guts.

* BlackComedy: The musical makes great use of this (see DarkerAndEdgier and DeliberateValuesDissonance below), most notably Mr. Phillips brief innuendo-laden song about "[[UnusualEuphemism attending to the needs]]" of his female students.



* DarkerAndEdgier: ''The Blythes Are Quoted'' in terms of tone and topic. In re: adaptations, also applies to the ''Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story" minseries.

In re: adaptations, also applies to the ''Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story" minseries.minseries, and the musical, which, while still very lighthearted, has a decidedly darker edge to its humour, mostly derived from DeliberateValuesDissonance.


Added DiffLines:

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: The musical does not shy away from satirizing the racist and colonial attitudes of the setting, and it is strongly implied that Mr. Phillips impregnates Prissy Andrews.


Added DiffLines:

* HotForStudent: Mr. Phillips and Prissy Andrews definitely have a thing going. The musical takes it a step further, making it blatantly obvious that the two are sleeping together.

* InsufferableGenius: Anne's student Jen Pringle, although the insufferable part is mostly the result of participation in her family's feud and quickly disappears. In the book, Anne initially compares her to a young [[VanityFair Becky Sharp]]. In the movie, Jen's more of a straight-up AlphaBitch.

* ThinksLikeARomanceNovel: Anne, especially as a teenager. She has an overactive imagination as it is, but add in a hopeless romantic streak and one too many romance novels, and you get some of the funniest moments in the series. As she gets older, however, her idealized notions of who she wants as a partner and what being in love is supposed to feel like start working against her. She is oblivious not only to Gilbert's feelings for her, but of her own growing feelings for him. She suffers a painful reality check near the end of ''Anne of the Island,'' when she realizes she isn't in love with the man who fits her ideals, and is in love with the man who didn't--the same man she might lose forever.

** In the third movie adaptation (okay, not so much adaptation as total re-write...in the wrong time period), Anne and Gilbert share one as he goes off to war.
