* MostWritersAreMale : A MUCH more [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids age-appropriate]] and accurate term than "groupies" would have been [[InsistentTerminology "merch girls."]] These are the almost AlwaysFemale hangers-on, sometimes the girlfriends of an indie band but also friends and family members, who sell t-shirts and [=CDs=], take admission and concession money, and do the grunt work like hanging up posters for a band.



* TechnologyMarchesOn: Dewey's ruse would be harder to pull off once the rise of social media took over. A glance at Ned's Facebook would probably alert them.

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance: More like Fridge Heartwarming, but Dewey's lie about how being in the band is prestigious? Well for Summer at least, it actually would look ''great'' on her resume if she says that she was the manager of a band at the age of ten.

* HilariousInHindsight: Dewey calls ''Theatre/{{Cats}}'' his least favorite musical. Its creator Andrew Lloyd Webber did the film's stage adaptation, [[SelfDeprecation and even kept that line in.]]

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Patty's dislike of Dewey for some. It's never said whether or not Patty actually lives in the apartment too but she does admittedly have a right to be annoyed at the situation.

It's never said confirmed whether or not Patty actually lives in the apartment too with them, but she does admittedly have a right it's not unreasonable for her to be annoyed at with how much Dewey takes advantage of Ned. On the situation.other hand, Ned doesn't seem to mind and she walks all over him just as much.



* TheWoobie : Poor Ms. Mullins. When all the teachers are yelling at her for the Dewey debacle, she leaves the room and goes to the stairs...to put herself in the corner. Aww!

** Ned. The poor guy is just trying to make a living as a teacher when his roommate ''steals his identity'' as part of a get-rich-quick scheme. Meanwhile, he lets his girlfriend walk all over him because he's afraid he'll never get another chance with a woman.

* ValuesDissonance: The entire character of [[QueerPeopleAreFunny Billy "Fancy Pants."]] At the time, the only one who had any real umbrige with it was the screenwriter, who is openly bi and has a gay father, but general audiences wouldn't had minded. Over a decade later, it seems needlessly cruel. The musical doesn't necessarily fix this, but at the very least depicts Billy as a character and not a punchline (helps that it's on Broadway, as LGBTQ-friendly a venue as you can imagine).

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: While not outright vulgar, there's a fair share of light swearing (mostly from the kids, no less!) and more than a few references to sex and drugs. Its PG-13 rating is a light one, at best.
