Added DiffLines:

* HopeSpot: The film has a perfectly happy ending ([[spoiler:the boys have all got into Oxbridge and Hector has his job back]]) if you stop watching as Hector and Irwin ride off on Hector's bike… [[spoiler:After that, it's revealed that Hector is killed and the boys' futures aren't exactly uplifting (Scripps, Akhtar, Crowther, Rudge and Dakin seem satisfied enough; Timms becomes a junkie; Lockwood joins the army and is killed by friendly fire; and Posner essentially becomes Hector though he resists the urge to fondle his pupils).]]

Added DiffLines:

* AnachronismStew: In the film, the crossing guard's "Stop: Children" sign is of the wrong design for the 1980s. It should be with the word "Children" in place of the pictogram, [[http://www.theconsortiumonline.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Lollypop-Sign.jpg like this]] - the current version only came about in the mid-1990s.

* BilingualBonus: The completely hilarious French class scene is left untranslated, and is not terribly short either. There isn't one on the DVD, but some productions will include one in the program.
* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The death of Hector and the fate of some of the boys.]]


Added DiffLines:

* BetterThanSex: Mrs Lintott preferred her first pizza to losing her virginity.

* SchoolTeachers: ''The History Boys'' deconstructs these one teacher at a time. Mr. Hector is the CoolTeacher who habitually gropes his pupils and is a "bit of a shambles". Mrs. Lintott is set up to be the SternTeacher but is very nice and the most stable teacher, so to speak. Mr. Irwin is the [[strike:HotTeacher]] deconstruction of types like [[DeadPoetsSociety Mr. Keating]], popular with the students, but with some rather extreme views that nonetheless as a person he has difficulty living up to. The HippieTeacher is always miffed that no one is taking her subject seriously; the Overly Religious Gym Teacher is a parody of, well, both of those things, and DeanBitterman, though mostly played straight, is actually shown to be in a difficult situation by the end of the film and delivers a pretty decent WhatTheHellHero speech to the CoolTeacher.

* AnalogyBackfire: Film-only exchange between the evangelizing P.E. teacher and Scripps (the student who spends a lot of time in church)
-->'''Gym teacher:''' God doesn't do notes, either. Did Jesus say, 'Can I be excused the Crucifixion?' No!
-->'''Scripps''' Actually, sir, I think he did.
