- Adaptation Displacement: Most people tend to think of the 1970s TV version first, before the original play or the movie that preceded it.
- Signature Scene: From the play, "It's not spaghetti, it's linguini!" For many years, it was the go-to scene for first-time actors doing "partner" scenes.
- WTH, Casting Agency?: Upon the female version's debut with Sally Struthers as Florence (female Felix) and Rita Moreno as Olive (female Oscar), at least a few reviewers referred to their casting as bizarre and "quixotic". To a lesser extent, Jenny Seagrove's casting as Olive in the 2001 West End production of the female version.
