* 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). Moreso considering how filthy rich Edward is and could've asked for more. The film does imply that Vivian's lying about her normal going rate and that inexperience makes her think she's asking for a big sum while Edward regards it as cheap change.
* 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! He's actually said he's quite thankful that the role on ''Seinfeld'' came along or he'd probably be best remembered for this one.
