*** Of course, that same song raises the question "is Nicky straight and being genuine, or [[HypocriticalHumor is he being just as defensive]] about his own sexuality?" Along these lines, some productions [[spoiler:have an implied threesome between Rod, Nicky ''and'' Ricky.]]

** The show's overall message is that there ''is'' no ''Sesame Street'' for adults. Big Bird won't hold your hand as you're figuring out adulthood. That's all up to you.

* AwesomeMusic: Almost every song is pure comedy gold, with "The Internet is for Porn" and "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist" being prime examples.
** There's even a few excellent tearjerking songs, like "There's a Fine, Fine Line" and "For Now".

** He also constantly remarks ''...but I'm not gay'' while (not so) subtly convincing Rod to come out in "If You Were Gay". Meaning he probably knows Rod would be interested if he mistook him for homosexual.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: In the finale, some productions have [[spoiler:Nicky tell Rod that he "knows [Rod's] type" after introducing a potential boyfriend who looks, acts and has nearly the same name as him (Ricky). This could be taken to mean either Nicky wasn't so ObliviousToLove after all or that he was ComicallyMissingThePoint]].


Added DiffLines:

* DieForOurShip: [[spoiler:Poor Ricky gets a fair amount of this from Rod/Nicky shippers, despite only appearing at the end of the musical and pretty much being a gay version of [[NiceGuy Nicky]]]].

* FridgeBrilliance: During the wedding scene, when Gary suggests that Rod's gay, the first one to voice surprise is Christmas Eve. Why? Because Rod had previously confided in her that [[IHaveThisFriend his "friend"]] might be gay and in the closet--chances are, Eve put two and two together and realized he was actually talking about himself.
