* TakingTheVeil: Emilia did this, believing her husband dead. No the ancient Greeks did not have convents. Ask Shakespeare if he cared.

* ShoutOut: The scene with Nell, the spherical kitchen maid, on whose body the brothers point out countries, is similar to a scene in ''{{Lysistrata}}'', where a peace treaty is drawn on a woman's naked body.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: Nell the kitchen wench, an unseen character, is enamoured of Dromio of Ephesus; he does not return the affection. In what might be an OlderThanSteam subversion, though, Dromio of Syracuse ''does''.

While not as popular as Shakespeare's A-list, ''Comedy of Errors'' is still performed today. It was adapted into a Rodgers and Hart musical, ''The Boys from Syracuse'', and into a 1988 movie, ''BigBusiness'', starring Lily Tomlin and Bette Midler (as the gender-flipped pairs of twins).

** It's hard to tell, though, since most Shakespeare play characters are AerithAndBob to modern ears at best, and would be more so if people didn't to this day regularly name their children after characters in Shakespeare.

** Some productions get around this by simply having the twins played by the same actor. Done right, this can create a whole new level of comedy, though it requires the use of FakeShemps for the twins in the resolution (for example, the 2013 New York Public Theater version).
