* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: "Rhythm of Life." Appears, is awesome, and is never referred to again. TheMovie gave it some relevance, as Oscar is seen getting over his neurosis while hiding in a tire after the church runs from the cops, but that scene is not in the original play.
* MemeticMutation: The first few bars of "Hey Big Spender" is the theatrical equivalent of the first few notes of Beethoven's 5th.
* OneSceneWonder: Daddy Brubeck, (Sammy Davis, Jr. in TheMovie) who sings Rhythm of Life and is never heard from again, yet his song is one of the most famous in the show.
