* CatchPhrase: "Downwards and backwards!"
* ClusterFBomb: [[MametSpeak David Mamet]] in "Project Playwright".
* TheDanza: Angus Hepburn as Angus Leech. Similarly, Natali''a'' Fedner as Natali''e'' Knickerbocker.
* FlatWhat: Everyone's reaction in episode 3 when [[spoiler: they have to write a play as a Tweet]].
* TakeThat: Oh so many.
* TokenMinority: Invoked/parodied in "Project Playwright", where Creator/OscarWilde fleetingly references that the reason Ntozake Shange is among the contestants is because the other playwrights are all white men.
