Eventually she explains to them that [[TheDitz they've all been speaking the same language all along]].

** While flying in the Gump, the Wogglebug comments that if Jack Pumpkinhead's head fell off, it would no longer be a pumpkin, but a squash. Tip tells him off for his insensitive puns.
* LogicBomb: Tip tries one of the wishing pills, and gets such a painful reaction that his exclamations of pain end in, "I wish I hadn't swallowed that pill!" The pain vanishes, and the Wogglebug argues that since he never swallowed the pill, he clearly never felt any pain. [[RippleProofMemory Tip isn't persuaded.]]

* ThirdLawOfGenderBending: After Tip is turned back into Princess Ozma, he instantly transforms from a fairly rambunctious boy to an exceedingly girly girl. However, given the date of publication (1903) it's highly unlikely anything else would have been considered acceptable.

* PumpkinPerson: The book has a rare ''non''-evil version with Jack Pumpkinhead, who shows up in several of the later Oz books (eventually getting one named after him [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Pumpkinhead_of_Oz]]), as well as appearing as a character in ''Film/ReturnToOz''. He is basically a wooden scarecrow brought to life by a magic powder. His pumpkin heads eventually rot, so he keeps a pumpkin patch to replenish them, and Ozma carves him a new face. The old heads are buried in a graveyard at his house.
