* ActingForTwo: In the [=NChick=] labs, Nella is in the same room with her MadScientist self while Elisa plays both The Makeover Fairy and [[HotScientist Dr. Tease]]. Elisa has lampshaded this in a formspring question, saying that the Makeover Fairy [[VanityIsFeminine was too obsessed with looking good]] to notice a woman looking almost exactly like her.
* ActorAllusion:
** When the lead lady in ''{{Grease 2}}'' sings that she wants "a devil in skintight leather", the Chick asks "Oh ''really'', Michelle Pfeiffer?" before cutting to a picture of [[Film/BatmanReturns Catwoman]].
** In the ''{{Newsies}}'' review, she says that Creator/ChristianBale's dancing got better before cutting to a deranged Bateman killing scene from ''AmericanPsycho''.
** In-film, the Genie's constant references to Robin Williams's other roles gives her a migraine.
** Whenever WillSmith comes along, she'll work in a WaxingLyrical reference to ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' theme song.
* {{Blooper}}: During the ''{{Bratz}}'' episode, when the Critic is [[SecretTestOfCharacter reasoning with her about why he made her do the movie]], he pushes the door and she pulls, which should actually open the door but it remains closed.
** As was lampshaded in her review of ''TheCraft'', her hair length will change drastically over the period of an episode.
* ColbertBump: Because of her short episode on ''Minnie The Moocher'', CabCalloway got a lot of new fans.
* CreatorCouple: Lindsay and Todd write a lot of the scripts together, including episodes where he doesn't appear.
* DawsonCasting: Lindsay occasionally plays herself (or rather, [[AlterEgoActing the Chick]]) as a mopey teenager in {{flashback}}s.
* {{Defictionalization}}: Based on her idea for a Disneyfied AnneFrank, we have a page for [[JustForFun/DisneysAnneFrank it]]. She's even edited it herself.
* DevelopmentHell: There was talk of making a home site (like [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe's]], a place for stuff that they couldn't put on TGWTG) last year, but it hasn't come into fruition yet.
* FakeNationality: In the ''Grease 2'' review, the Makeover Fairy claims to be [[UsefulNotes/{{Moldova}} Moldovan]], though Elisa is American.
* {{Fan Community Nickname|s}}: "Chicklets".
* FandomNod: After fans shipped Mara Wilson with Critic after just her enjoying his humiliation in ''ASimpleWish'', ''{{Matilda}}'' ups the FoeYay aspect with her acting like he was a really fun toy to play with.
* FanNickname: Japanese fans nicknamed her "Nosko."
* FunnyCharacterBoringActor: Inverted. It's not so much that the Chick isn't really funny, but Lindsay is a lot happier and gigglier out of character.
* MeaningfulReleaseDate: Her own co-site, [[http://chezapocalypse.com/ Chez Apocalypse]] came out on the day of the supposed apocalypse. (21/12/2012)
* OldShame: In her livestream, Lindsay admitted that she watched "Rapping About Rape" again and could see why it got so much hate.
** In a weird way, [[http://lindsayetumbls.tumblr.com/post/37955055365/i-was-kind-of-wondering-why-you-took-down-the-tlc the TLC retrospective]]. While she doesn't seem to think it's a ''bad'' episode, it's more that she thinks sincere emotions on the show are too out of place.
** Her review of the ''Literature/{{Dune}}'' film. Lindsay took it down because she felt that most of the plot holes she brought up were actually addressed within the film itself, as unclear as they were.
* OneOfUs: A video entitled "TheSmurfettePrinciple", where she even called herself a DistaffCounterpart. She also later references TheWoobie page on her video of ''Film/EverAfter.'' Also, "Lord MacGuffin" has edited this page.
** She has referenced several tropes from this very wiki by name (ABoyAndHisX, the {{Egregious}} in-joke, AcceptableTargets, ItsAlwaysMardiGrasInNewOrleans, etc).
* PropRecycling: Lindsay originally built the robot prop for a student film about a Catholic robot; it was reused for the Nostalgia Chick show.
* {{Talking to H|imself}}erself: While she only has the one character, she still does the "play both people in the argument" thing.
-->'''Chick 1''': What's Natalie Wood doing?
-->'''Chick 2''': Uh, she's been dead for ten years, Diane.
-->'''Chick 1''': My bad. Um, what about the chick from Bye Bye Birdie? What's she doing?
-->'''Chick 2''': She's not doing anything.
-->'''Chick 1''': Alright, get out the shoehorn!
* ThrowItIn: In the "Kirk vs. Picard" video, the Chick does an impersonation of Picard while Nella acted like Shatner. According to the commentary, neither of those were scripted.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** In her commentary for ''X-Men'', Lindsay said she was going to follow the TGWTG trend of having more than one character and play Dr. Tease herself.
*** The same went for Dr. Block, but because Lindsay hates acting so much, Nella took the role herself.
** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic was going to review ''{{Newsies}}'', but Lindsay told Doug she expressed interest in reviewing it, so he let her do it instead.
** In the ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' big group song, Ed Glazer or Doug could have played Marius instead of Paw, it could have been a chorus of Lindsays (recorded to set everyone's place, as described in the commentary), or the review might not have happened at all due to Lindsay and Elisa having a car accident on the way to Chicago. (A hurricane just made them swerve into a ditch, they were fine.)
** In an example that made [[{{Shipping}} shippers']] hearts soar, the first "Thanks For The Feedback" was going to see the Chick and Critic have sex, and then realize [[BrotherSisterIncest they were related]].
** As charmingly goofy as it was, the Dark Nella Saga was going to be much sillier and originally consisted of the eponymous quasi-demonic force of evil giving everyone evil noogies.
** The Chick taping Todd to a chair in "''SleeplessInSeattle'' vs. ''WhenHarryMetSally''" was originally going to be a ''{{Misery}}'' parody instead, but was cut for being considered far too creepy.
