* HideousHangoverCure: Star knows one, and the mnemonic for it is a ShoutOut to ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'': "Eye of newt and toe of frog..."

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorTract: The broader setting seems to exist largely to praise Heinlein's favored views of society, particularly in the political and sexual realms. Large portions of the novel are devoted to long speeches on the subjects.

* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: Star is Rufo's grandmother, but looks much younger, due to the way their society's LongevityTreatment permits the recipient to choose their desired physical age. Star wants to look youthful and Rufo wants to look like an old curmudgeon.
