Added DiffLines:

* UnusualEuphemism: in "Toledo Surprise", the Gangsters threaten Feldzieg with baking metaphors, like "chop the nuts", "beat the dough", "peel the skin [of a peach]", and so on. Later, Kitty takes up the melody and begins making thinly veiled sex references ("Squeeze the cream, grease the pan, lick the spoon", etc etc).

Added DiffLines:

* LovingAShadow: Downplayed with the Man in Chair's love for ''The Drowsy Chaperone.'' He's fully aware of the musical's many, many flaws, but it's still the one he turns to when he's blue, even though he's never even seen it performed.

Added DiffLines:

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Discussed by the Man In Chair with regards to the character of Kitty. Despite seeming like a total bimbo, she nevertheless pulls off something very clever at the end, which leads the Man in Chair to wonder if she's playing dumb.

* RiddleForTheAges: At the very end, does the Drowsy Chaperone say "[[spoiler: Love while you can]]" or "[[spoiler: Leave while you can]]"? The Man in Chair is obsessed with the question.
