** A subtle one is that there's a key difference between setting a goal and putting heavy emphasis on finding one's purpose. Brian wants to be a comedian and get paid for it, for example, and Kate longs to set up a monster school, but Princeton simply wants to find his purpose and wants it yesterday. The lesson being that this is an easy way to make yourself miserable -- whereas if you have an actual dream, you might just get it.

*** But then again, Lucy [[spoiler: almost dies and literally looses her head twice]], so even she might get some sympathy by the end.

** "In volatile market, only stable investment... is porn!" (And this is actually true if you're able to invest wisely.)

* AlternateAesopInterpretation: "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist": Either, yes, everyone's a bit racist, and rather than being hypocrites by getting mad about "little things," we should let 'em slide and save our anger for the big kinds of racism, or everyone's a little bit racist, and being in denial about it rather than admitting it won't help us get over it.

** The updated version of "For Now" which changed "George Bush is only for now!" to "George Bush ''was'' only for now!" actually reinforces the message that "Nothing lasts forever."

*** One production by an independent theater in Minneapolis had a bit in the end where Gary goes to change the "For Rent" sign, falls down the stairs and dies. A new sign was put up that said "Now Hiring" in its place.
* HarsherInHindsight: Certainly having GaryColeman as a character at least feels a bit bittersweet since he died.
** Especially with everyone singing how much it sucks to be him in the opening number.
*** Worth mentioning: the day after his death was announced, his actress on Broadway made a special statement when the show was over, in tribute to him, to say "[[SincerityMode For me, at least, it has never sucked to be Gary Coleman on]] Theatre/AvenueQ."
