Added DiffLines:

* AffablyEvil: Harry the Horse is generally affable and pleasant fellow in spite of being a crook and a gambler, but when with Big Jule, he can get a little sinister, especially when he backs up Big Jule's cheating.


Added DiffLines:

* BigBad: Downplayed. While Harry the Horse isn't the one causing the whole conflict of the film, he was the one who invited Big Jule to the crap game, who is notorious for cheating in crap games. Therefore he had a hand in delaying Nathan in eloping with Adelaide, and cleaning him out of his money through Big Jule's cheating.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: If it wasn't for Harry the Horse saying that Big Jule can't make a pass to save his soul with his blank dice, Sky wouldn't have been able to make good on the deal he made with the Mission about getting in 12 genuine sinners, and then he wouldn't have reconciled with and married Sarah, and Nathan wouldn't have married Adelaide.

** And the title song for Nicely-Nicely (again) and Benny. Nathan took it over for TheMovie version, because...well, if you have FrankSinatra in a part that only has two major songs, wouldn't you shoehorn him into everything else you possibly can?

* DespairEventHorizon: Nathan crosses it in the sewer, as to run this crap game, he's been forced to promise to elope, and ends up broke in a sewer for his troubles.

* LadykillerInLove: Possibly Sky with Sarah; we don't see him with any other women over the course of the play, but he implies that he could take ''any'' doll to Havanna if he wished, and he's supremely confident that he can win Sarah over.

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: Enough for a big ol' dance number during the final crap game - it's absurdly spacious even by the standards of absurdly spacious sewers...
