* Seymour assures Audrey, "Suddenly, Seymour/Is here to provide you/Sweet understanding/Seymour's your friend." Then at the end of the song, Audrey proclaims, "Seymour's my ''man!''" At least in the movie, Seymour and Audrey perform a BigDamnKiss after this.

* The extended version of "The Meek Shall Inherit" has Seymour plagued by guilt about letting Twoey kill Mushnik. He has a CatapultNightmare and goes with an axe to kill the plant. Only the thought of Audrey leaving stays his hand.


* In the theatrical version, Seymour gets Audrey out safely from Twoey's maw. Then he tells her stay out of the stop while he ends the vegetable. She still watches through the window, clearly concerned for his safety.

!! Both Stage And Film
* Abusive douchebag he is, Orin singing about [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas his mother looking down on him from heaven]] is pretty sweet.
* While Audrey refuses to dump Orin, in spite of the fact that he hits her and insults her frequently, Seymour, Chiffon, Ronette, Crystal, and even ''Mr. Mushnik'' all urge her to drop that abusive prick and find a man that's worth her time. Audrey may think she's useless, but the people around her know she deserves so much more than life has given her.
* Audrey confesses to Seymour that back when the shop wasn't doing very well, she worked a second job, heavily implied to be at a strip club. She's deeply ashamed of having such a past, but Seymour's immediate response is essentially, "So what?" He genuinely doesn't care, saying that it was only a job, and Audrey has nothing to be ashamed of.

Ronette, Chiffon and Crystal all tell Orin that they know ''all'' about what he did to Audrey, and they don't approve, and tell him in no uncertain terms to get lost. Granted, it doesn't work, but it was nice of them to try. (In at least one production, one of the girls tries to ''physically attack'' Orin, only to be held back by the other two -- not that he notices, of course.)

* Audrey confesses to Even when faced with evidence that Seymour probably killed Orin and had a good motive for it, Mushnik doesn't turn him into the cops. Instead, he lies to them that back when he doesn't know anything, and then confronts Seymour later. Some stagings have him speaking in disbelief, and he asks Seymour to give his side of the shop wasn't doing very well, she worked a second job, heavily implied to story at the police station, because there may be at a strip club. She's deeply ashamed rational explanation. Unlike in the film, where getting rid of having Seymour would benefit him, Mushnik doesn't believe that Seymour is capable of such a past, but evil. It makes Seymour's immediate response decision to feed him to Audrey II ''much'' worse.

!! Film
* Quickly sinks into NightmareFuel, but when Seymour sees the plant perk up and make kissing sounds, he thinks Audrey II
is essentially, "So what?" blowing kisses at him and imitates him before trying to stroke it. Actually, Audrey II wants the blood from his cut finger.
* Seymour's proposal to Audrey.
He genuinely doesn't care, saying asks her if she would still like him if he were poor. Audrey says that it was only a job, she ''always'' liked him, money or no money; he gets ecstatic and asks her to elope. They both squeal, and Audrey has nothing says she'll get dressed and packed. A shame Twoey had to be ashamed of.
ruin it...
