* AccidentallyAccurate: A frequently-cut verse of "You Did It" has Higgins quoting Karpathy as saying "She's as Hungarian as the First Hungarian Rhapsody!". No points for guessing which nationality said music isn't.



* BeardOfEvil: Zoltan.
* BigFancyHouse: Higgins' pad.

* CutSong: "Say A Prayer For Me Tonight" was written for this show, but cut and used later in ''Gigi''.
** Also, there's an extra verse sometimes re-added to "You Did It" expanding on Karpathy's raves about Eliza's certain Hungarian birth.

* TheEdwardianEra: 1912, to be precise. ([[FridgeHorror Makes one rather wonder]] about Freddy's [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI fate]].)
** In a flash of FridgeBrilliance, this may imply a case of DeathOfTheHypotenuse.
** In 1912, Edward VII had been dead for two years so strictly speaking the New Georgian Era.
*** In historical terms, the Edwardian Era lasted from the death of Queen Victoria until the First World War.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Higgins, who comes from noble stock, is such an offensive and crass boor that his mother has banned him from her social circle. This is illustrated at the horse races where sumptuous hats and tuxedos are on display; enter Higgins, crashing the party in his usual, dusty-looking tweed. Higgins' out of control ego could suggest some kind of narcissistic personality disorder or, considering his obvious genius, a high-functioning form of Asperger's.

* LessonsInSophistication: Eliza Doolittle receives such lessons from Professor Higgins after he made a bet with Colonel Pickering.



* Lov Epiphany: "Damn damn damn damn! I've grown accustomed to her face!"

* MeaningfulName: A name like Doolittle totally makes sense for someone like Eliza's father. Eliza herself, [[UnfortunateName on the other hand]]...

* PinkProductPloy: Every DVD cover since 2004 has a pink background. (The 2004 cover actually uses a 1964 poster which was pink to begin with.)
