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…

"Childfree is Not Allowed" has been renamed. Not an example of Hide Your Lesbians.
* [[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.

* LampshadeHanging: ** Of the "Message from Fred" variety: -->'''Fabian''': If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction. ** Malvolio being seen as crazy for wearing yellow stockings could be this to a theatrical superstition against wearing yellow.

I think yellow being one of three major "bad luck colors" in theatre tradition may have had something to do with the whole "yellow stockings" subplot.
