YMMV: Thoroughly Modern Millie
  • Awesome Music:
    • ONLY IN! NEW! YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORK!
    • Not for the life of me...bo do dee oh!
    • Forget about the boy! Forget about the boy! Forget about the boy! Also, see...
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The Jewish Wedding scene.
  • Ear Worm: So I hope you solve this matter matter matter matter matter...
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Carol Channing as the eccentric Muzzy Van Hossmere, who notably won a Golden Globe and Academy Award nomination as Best Supporting Actress.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Mrs Meers and the Chinese white slavery ring. The stage version tries to avoid this by having Mrs. Meers be an American actress who is unaware of how over the top and stereotypical she is, while the real Chinese characters are annoyed by it. Unfortunately, the "real" Chinese characters (Bun Foo and Ching Ho) are pretty stereotypical themselves, especially with the "Chinese" they speak.
