Added DiffLines:

* NiceGirl: Viola is a very kind, very loyal, very likable individual; notably, she never uses her disguise to trick or deceive others beyond telling them she's male--she's simply interested in getting on with her life. She's also very sweet to both Olivia and Orsino, and genuinely wants the best for everyone. At least one literary critic has claimed that her straightforwardly good and kind personality is probably why Viola's one of the most well-liked of Shakespeare's leading ladies.

* TrueLoveAutoCorrect: Olivia seems to be in love with "Cesario", actually Viola in disguise, who does not feel the same way, but happily trades-in for Sebastian, Viola's twin brother.

Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslyAproposMusic: Feste sings a lot about the passing of time and the complexity of romantic love. No prizes for guessing whether those are notable motifs in the play as a whole

* [[MandatoryMotherhood Childfree Is Not Allowed]]: One argument why Olivia should marry.



* [[strike: HideYourLesbians]] [[HideYourLesbians Trick Your Lesbians Into Marrying Guys]]: Scholars have debated about Olivia for a long time: she married "Cesario" thinking he was male, but she fell in love with the female Viola. Fortunately, Viola and Sebastian are similar in temperament and character as well as looks - this is possibly Lampshaded with the line "You are betrothed both to a man and maid."

* TreeCover: Maria, Toby, and Andrew hide in or behind a box tree according to the stage directions. Given boxwood refers to a small shrubbery or tree, this verges on MobileShrubbery in some productions.

* AllThereInTheScript: Viola doesn't get named in the play itself -- as opposed to the stage directions -- until the very last scene. It doesn't hurt that she spends most of the play as "Cesario"...
** Similarly, Feste has exactly one use of his name in the show, and that over halfway through.

* CovertPervert: Despite his Puritanical tendencies, Malvolio's imagination is pretty deep in the gutter as regards Olivia: the letters he notices in her handwriting are "C's, U's, and T's" (try saying that aloud), and daydreams about being married to her. The Trevor Nunn film has Malvolio wearing yellow stockings to sleep before he gets the fraudulent letter, treating yellow stockings as a kind of odd Illyrian kink.
