* LadykillerInLove: Possibly Sky with Sarah.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.

* DefrostingIceQueen: Sky tries to do this with Sarah.

to:

** Nathan himself, who despite being engaged to Adelaide has managed to put off the wedding for fourteen years. Despite this, he seems to take it for granted that they'll get married eventually, and Benny Southstreet comments that it's a shame he "had to go and fall in love with his own fiancée."

* OpinionChangingDream: During the scene when the gamblers are attending the revival at the Save-A-Soul mission because Sky won a bet, Nicely-Nicely Johnson recounts a dream he had that turned him from his wild gambling ways, "Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat". (Clip from the 2011 Broadway revival is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=bnzSSPP4mGE#t=0 here]]; the film version (performed by Stubby Kaye) is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCfGjUfXUIE here]].) The trope is subverted, in that Nicely didn't change his ways and may not (probably didn't, in fact) even have such a dream at all.
