* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Insistently averted: "I'm Gary Coleman, from TV's ''DiffrentStrokes'' / I made a lot of money that got stolen by my folks!" (In the original Broadway production, and most subsequent American shows, Gary Coleman is played by a woman. For the London production, who [[EaglelandOsmosis might not know the show]], Gary Coleman is played by a man.)

* AllMenAreArePerverts: Trekkie's belief that "The Internet is for Porn" is heartily backed up by all the guys of Avenue Q, much to Kate's disgust. The possibility that women "unzip their flies" as well is never entertained.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: Despite the description of the BittersweetEnding above, it's worth noting that he can find a purpose offscreen. He can work as an English teacher at Kate's monsters' school (assuming the monsters only part doesn't also mean only monster staff).

* AWorldHalfFull: The show makes no bones about the fact that Avenue Q is a terrible place to live, but it also makes the point that things always have the potential and ability to get better, and that everything in life, the good ''and'' the bad, is "only for now."
