* 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.

* TruerToTheText: One can read the script for the play and see that this film actually uses the script in contrast to the 1962 film that merely rewrote the entire thing and left the songs as they were. This is what makes the 2003 film superior to the 1962 film.
