* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: Berger ''may'' have been able to fill in for Claude for a single anonymous roll call (he's shown giving a knowing wink to another soldier who stares at him in surprise when he answers for Claude), but as soon as the orders came through for them to ship out to Vietnam, the cat would have been out of the bag no matter what. None of Claude's gear would have fit him, none of his Claude's squadmates would have kept silent because there's no way in the world they're going to deploy to combat with some asshole they've never seen before who clearly doesn't know what the fuck he's doing, Claude's squad leader, platoon sergeant, and platoon commander would have all done individual inspections of each soldier prior to boarding the plane, and Claude's squad leader would have been the first one to say "who the fuck are ''you''" to Berger. Long before the plane took off, Berger would have been arrested for trespassing and Claude would be classified as a deserter with every cop in the area on the lookout for him. Moviegoers with military experience were rolling their eyes big time during this scene.

* TeenyWeenie: Berger teases Claude about this. Depending on the production, the audience may have seen for themselves whether it's true or not.

* RaceFetish: The song called "Black Boys/White Boys", where two groups of people -- one white, one black -- sing about how black boys and white boys (respectively) turn them on. The male white officers agreeing with the white women that the black boys are delicious like chocolate, and the black officers agreeing with the black women about how kissable the white men are. By making the fetishism a mutual affair, the song makes clear that it's not about racism or sexism. Also, the focus on shallow beauty/sexyness is done in such a way that it sends an anti-racist message: The difference between races is a shallow difference, merely a matter of how you look.

* CutSong: an odd example due to the Alternate Continuity of song lists in the play to begin with. The soundtrack for the film and the film itself contain different song lists. See page for details.
