* ComicallySmallDemand: Even in 1990 dollars, $3000 seems like a ridiculously small sum for a solid week of prostitution--especially considering Vivian's going rate is normally $100 an hour (168 hours in a week x $100 = $16,800).
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Becoming/hiring a hooker is a great way to find true love! And becoming a hooker on the street (not even a high class call girl) will totally leave you as pretty and healthy as Creator/JuliaRoberts in her prime!
** The film's original script was a more gritty and realistic tale of what being a street prostitute is like. See the Trivia tab for more info.
* GeniusBonus: The opera that Edward takes Vivian to is ''La Traviata'', which is about a prostitute who falls in love with a rich man.
* HilariousInHindsight: George Costanza as a 1980s-style hard-hitting scumbag corporate raider? You jest, sir!
