Though it helps that Soviet Russia is supposed to be about putting capitalism behind itself as backward the same way it puts belief in beings like Woland's entourage behind them as backwards.

* TheThirties: No, not TheGreatDepression -- the Soviet thirties, when [[JosefStalin Stalin and his cadre of fanatics were consolidating their power]]. (Strictly speaking, the novel is ambiguous on its setting: Critics generally argue that the novel is a mashup of TheSovietTwenties (when it was begun) and the Thirties.)

* ExactWords: Woland says Margarita may wish for anything of him in return of serving as his hostess on the ball. So when Margarita uses that wish to get a woman pardoned of her eternal punishment, he gives Margarita another chance to wish for something, because, as he said, ''he'' didn't do anything, it was Margarita who forgave that sinner.
