YMMV: Faust: First Part of the Tragedy
- Big Lipped Alligator Moment: "A Walpurgis Night's Dream, or Oberon's and Titania' Golden Wedding", a grotesque play within a play performed by the spirits of Walpurgis Night on Mount Brocken. It makes no apparent sense, has no obvious connection to the frame storynote The connection in Goethe's mind may have been that, to a degree, it is a homage to Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, just as the preceding scene (Walpurgis Night) is partially a homage to Macbeth. , has no function for the plot, and is never spoken of afterwards.
