* CrazyAwesome: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by Casanova about his series of schemes where he pretended to be an "expert" astrologer, lawyer and musician despite having zero qualifications, which all somehow ended up ''working'' regardless.
--> '''Casanova''': I'm starting to scare myself.

to:

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: When Casanova discusses with Rocco his intentions to be an involved and caring father, the audience sees Giac in the middle of suffering all sorts of mishaps which Casanova remains completely oblivious to.

Added DiffLines:

** In perhaps a CallBack to earlier, the Priest may have fainted because Casanova had just informed him about [[NaughtyNuns the nuns]] he had slept with, first independently and then at the ''same'' time.


Added DiffLines:

* SadClown: Casanova has shades of this. The elderly Casanova dials it up, particularly with [[MoodWhiplash the speed]] in which he goes from describing his youthful adventures amongst the elite of France... to the brutality of the French Revolution.
--> '''Old Casanova''': Everyone I knew in that city is '''dead'''.
