  • Never Live It Down: Mark
  • Romantic Plot Tumor: The relationship between Zach and Cassie, only hinted at in the stage version, is the focus of the film version.
  • Tear Jerker: Where to start?
    • Paul's monologue.
    • "Daddy, I would love to dance."
    • The end. When you realize that all the pain and isolation and years of hard work and self-doubt that these actors put themselves through amounts to being the third dancer in the individual spats, all completely identical, indistinguishable, singing backup for some invisible star.
    • "Kiss today goodbye...and point me toward tomorrow..."
  • The Woobie: was Paul.
