Trivia: The Nostalgia Chick
  • Acting for Two: In the NChick labs, Nella is in the same room with her Mad Scientist self while Elisa plays both The Makeover Fairy and Dr. Tease. Elisa has lampshaded this in a formspring question, saying that the Makeover Fairy was too obsessed with looking good to notice a woman looking almost exactly like her.
  • Actor Allusion:
    • 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 Catwoman.
    • In the Newsies review, she says that Christian Bale's dancing got better before cutting to a deranged Bateman killing scene from American Psycho.
    • In-film, the Genie's constant references to Robin Williams's other roles gives her a migraine.
    • Whenever Will Smith comes along, she'll work in a Waxing Lyrical reference to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song.
  • Blooper: During the Bratz episode, when the Critic is 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 The Craft, her hair length will change drastically over the period of an episode.
  • Colbert Bump: Because of her short episode on Minnie The Moocher, Cab Calloway got a lot of new fans.
  • Creator Couple: Lindsay and Todd write a lot of the scripts together, including episodes where he doesn't appear.
  • Dawson Casting: Lindsay occasionally plays herself (or rather, the Chick) as a mopey teenager in flashbacks.
  • Defictionalization: Based on her idea for a Disneyfied Anne Frank, we have a page for it. She's even edited it herself.
  • Development Hell: There was talk of making a home site (like Angry Joe's, a place for stuff that they couldn't put on TGWTG) last year, but it hasn't come into fruition yet.
  • Fake Nationality: In the Grease 2 review, the Makeover Fairy claims to be Moldovan, though Elisa is American.
  • Fan Community Nickname: "Chicklets".
  • Fandom Nod: After fans shipped Mara Wilson with Critic after just her enjoying his humiliation in A Simple Wish, Matilda ups the Foe Yay aspect with her acting like he was a really fun toy to play with.
  • Fan Nickname: Japanese fans nicknamed her "Nosko."
  • Funny Character, Boring Actor: Inverted. It's not so much that the Chick isn't really funny, but Lindsay is a lot happier and gigglier out of character.
  • Meaningful Release Date: Her own co-site, Chez Apocalypse came out on the day of the supposed apocalypse. (21/12/2012)
  • Old Shame: 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, 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 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.
  • One of Us: A video entitled "The Smurfette Principle", where she even called herself a Distaff Counterpart. She also later references The Woobie page on her video of Ever After. Also, "Lord MacGuffin" has edited this page.
  • Prop Recycling: Lindsay originally built the robot prop for a student film about a Catholic robot; it was reused for the Nostalgia Chick show.
  • Talking to Herself: 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!
  • Throw It In: 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.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • 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.
    • The Nostalgia Critic was going to review Newsies, but Lindsay told Doug she expressed interest in reviewing it, so he let her do it instead.
    • In the Les MisÚrables 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 shippers' hearts soar, the first "Thanks For The Feedback" was going to see the Chick and Critic have sex, and then realize 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 "Sleepless In Seattle vs. When Harry Met Sally" was originally going to be a Misery parody instead, but was cut for being considered far too creepy.
