Moved info to TRIVIA tab.
* CutSong: "From This Moment On", though it was later reinstated. ** Strangely, this is a cut number from a different Cole Porter musical, ''Out of This World'', which made its way into the film version of ''Kiss Me, Kate'' and then, in a different context, revivals of the stage version.

* ComedicSpanking: Lilli receives a good one from Fred at the end of the first act, technically in character as Katherina but she had it coming herself as well. This sets up a RunningGag of her being unable to sit down well into the second act.

** Also, "Always True to You in My Fashion" is probably an intentional paraphrase of a line from the poem "Non Sum Qualis eram Bonae Sub Regno Cynarae" (better known as simply "Cynara") by Ernest Dowson: "I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion." Bonus in-joke points because the speaker has been indulging ''a lot'' in [[HookersAndBlow wine, women and song]] in an unsuccessful attempt to forget Cynara.

He signs Fred's name to a large gambling debt (to pay for money that Fred doesn't actually have) and his punishment for this is [[spoiler: the mob boss that wanted Fred to pay up conveniently dies just in time for Bill and Lois to reconcile and go on to star in what we presume will be a very successful play.]]
