* BittersweetEndingBittersweetEnding: Everyone is saved, but Mary is captured and institutionalized, and still will never be taken seriously as an adult.



* JerkassHasAPoint: Baby-Doll's former castmates point out that it was technically her fault that the show got cancelled in the first place. It was actually explained earlier in the episode by Summer Gleeson that due to Mary leaving the show, she put her costars out of a job since the TV-executives were forced to cancel the show.

** Cousin Spunky's introduction was supposed to bolster failing ratings and keep the sitcom on the air. This led to the birthday episode, which Mary hated so much she quit--and without her, the show was immediately canceled.

-->'''Mary:''' (''In an adult voice while looking at the mirror'') Look! That's me in there. The real me! There I am. (''Her face drops as she glances at her own, child-like arm'') But it's not really real, is it? Just made up and pretend like my family, and my life, and everything else. (''turns to Batman, shaking, doll/gun pointed at him'') '''''Why couldn't you just let me make-believe'''''!?!\\

* {{Narm}}: Robin in-universe views the ''Baby Doll'' sitcom as this, and in a painful way.

* {{Narm}}: Robin in-universe views the ''Baby Doll'' sitcom as this, and in a painful way. Similarly, Mary's portrayal of Lady Macbeth is amateurish in a more realistic way, rather than outright terrible.

* {{Determinator}} Batman really took a beating at Dahl's expense. She threw a smoke bomb from at him, had her henchwoman Miriam beat the crap out of him, shot him with tennis balls and finally pistol whipped him with a concealed gun. Yet he still tries to reason with her.
