Added DiffLines:

* Baroness Elsa Schneider in the stage musical telling Max that the Captain doesn't know that he's going to propose to her, and they sing a sarcastic song about how typically "lovers have to struggle" and [[{{Foreshadowing}} there's no challenge when two lovers are rich]]. Come a few scenes later, the Captain starts to develop feelings for penniless and lower-class Maria.


Added DiffLines:

* Baroness Elsa Schneider breaking off her engagement to Captain Von Trapp in the musical, because he won't agree with her to bend to the Nazi ways. Although the Captain's LoveEpiphany about Maria follows, it's a gut punch since she does have feelings for him and politics rather than Maria breaks them up.
