* TheMusicMeister: Harold Hill frequently keeps his con going whenever someone questions the logic of what is going on by getting everyone to start singing. The School Board is the most frequent victim, but the Ladies Auxiliary is not immune. Character eventually start protesting this tactic but don't seem to be able to stop.

* ExactWords: Shows up in a modified form. Marian was the only friend of "miser Madison," an extremely rich man who, upon his death, donated a large amount of property to River City (including the park and gymnasium). He also willed the town the library, but as the Pick-a-Little ladies explain, he only gave the city the ''building''--he left all of the ''books'' to Marian. Since they are her legal property, she's the only one who can have the job as librarian; presumably, Madison sensed that Marion was disliked in the town and did this to ensure that she would always be employed.

* RealityEnsues: The band plays as well as "The Think System" would work, but they're close enough to ''Minuet in G'' that the parents don't really care that it's kinda of terrible.
