YMMV: Tootsie
  • Moment Of Awesome: There are many scenes in this movie which are rewind-worthy. Favorites include when Dorothy tells Ron off during her audition after he calls her too gentle, when she tells Ron that she would like to be called by her name, not "honey" or "tootsie," and, of course, The Reveal.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Estelle Getty is one of the couples dancing late in the film, and is pretty recognizable.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: In-universe, this is very much Jeff's philosophy towards his playwriting.
    Jeff: I don't like it when people come up to me after my plays and say, "I really dug your message, man." Or, "I really dug your play, man, I cried." You know. I like it when people come up to me the next day, or a week later, and they say, "I saw your play. What happened?"
