* Not in the work itself, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvX6LkbiS-U various]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5K1RcKJVbHA celebrities]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WahBH9sANg reading]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvZVpbJ9DzY it.]]
** The GeorgeTakei one is particularly amusing, since he shares a CatchPhrase with the narrator. The one with MorganFreeman ([[labelnote:sorta]]It's actually a voice imitator named Josh Robert Thompson[[/labelnote]]) also includes some pretty hilarious commentary.
* For the interview, Kate had planned to ask Grey if he was gay, for no apparent reason.
* Any time the phrase [[PurpleProse "inner goddess"]] is uttered. Among the things it does is a "salsa merengue," and waving pom-poms like a cheerleader, and it is once said to be like someone who has had an ice-cream snatched from it.
** There's also the line from ''Fifty Shades Darker'': "My inner goddess is doing a triple axel dismount from the uneven bars." "Triple axel" is a spin in figure skating. Dismounting the uneven bars is done in ''gymnastics''.
* Every time the "subconscious" is mentioned. Interestingly, the "subconscious" isn't really her subconscious, because she's clearly aware what the subconscious is doing (such as wearing half-moon spectacles) which is fully conscious.
* Every time Ana goes "Oh my!" or "Holy crap!" and wants to masturbate at the sight of Christian Grey.
* Every time a foil packet (euphemism for condom) is mentioned during a sex scene.
* Every time a euphemism for vagina is used, e.g. "my sex" or "down ''there''."
* Every time a euphemism for penis is used, e.g. "incredible length".
* "I would like to bite that lip."
* "Moving down, I push him into my mouth. He groans again. Ha! My inner goddess is thrilled. I can do this. I can fuck him with my mouth."
** "My Christian Grey-flavored popsicle."
* "I'm a ho with dirty sex hair."
* Ana's mental response to the news that she just had "vanilla sex" with Grey: "I thought it was chocolate fudge brownie sex that we had, with a cherry on the top."
* "He reaches between my legs and [[FetishRetardant pulls on the blue string]] –[[BigWhat what?!]] – [[FetishRetardant and gently pulls my tampon out and tosses it into the nearby toilet.]] [[SirSwearsalot Holy fuck. Sweet mother of all… Jeez.]] And then [[IKEAErotica he’s inside me.]]"
* The fact that the author obviously isn't familiar with the BDSM subculture.
* Let's just say the whole book.
** Let's just say the entire ''series''.
** Most of them are mostly {{Narm}} rather than intentional (especially the inner goddess parts).
* In ''Fifty Shades Darker'', Ana and Christian go to Jose's art show. To their surprise, several people recognize Ana and they soon find out why: an entire wall is dedicated to photos of her (that she didn't know existed). Christian immediately purchases every picture.
