* GeniusBonus: Sharp-eyed viewers will note that, during the choreography for the song "Cool Considerate Men," specifically during the chorus ("ever to the right, never to the left") at no time do any of the singers ever step directly to the left. Even when they move to the left, they do so by making three right turns.

** The actual debate on the text of the Declaration took place ''after'' the vote for independence, which would have made the whole play rather anti-climatic, though the proposed amendment on fishing rights ''actually happened''.

** Even Franklin gets tired of Adams' holier-than-thou antics:
-->'''Franklin''': How DARE you jeopardize our cause, when we've come so far? These men, no matter how much we may disagree with them, are not ribbon clerks to be ordered about! They are proud, accomplished men, the cream of their colonies. And whether you like them or not, they and the people they represent will be part of this new nation that YOU hope to create. Now, either learn how to live with them, or pack up and go home!

* RedHeadedHero:
** Abigail Adams' insight and willingness to support her husband, when he's at a loss even for words, spur him into action in the Continental Congress.
** Thomas Jefferson, being the one to ultimately write the Declaration.

** Adams and Jefferson. Adams is loud, demanding, and abrasive to Jefferson, while Jefferson quietly snarks back when they're in private. But Jefferson smoothly saves the floundering Adams by providing the justification for the Declaration, even winking to let him know he's got this, and Adams is sympathetic enough to him to send for his wife when he can't go home to visit her. The historical Adams and Jefferson were close friends up until their presidencies, when their political differences got too bitter, but they eventually reconciled.
