* GracefulLoser: The Baroness, eventually. One can scarcely blame her for putting up a fight for her love, she's been working on Georg for a long time now. In the musical, however, she gives up the fight for a different reason, in that she and Georg disagree on how to handle the oncoming invasion of Nazis into their country. She is graceful, but the scene where she breaks their engagement is quite heartbreaking.

*** Ethnic self-segregation ''was'' practiced or at least allowed by the Catholic Church. Upon arrival in Vermont, the Von Trapps would likely have faced a choice of joining an [[TheIrishDiaspora Irish]], Italian or [[UsefulNotes/{{Quebec}} French (Canadian)]] parish.
