  • Crowning Moment of Funny: "We were necking and I was feeling her boobs and feeling her boobs. And after about an hour, she was all, 'Oooh! Don't you wanna feel anything else?' And I suddenly thought, 'No. No I don't!' That was probably the first time I realized I was homosexual."
    • Bobby's monologue is also pure hilarity.

" I used to love to give garage recitals. Bizarre recitals. This one time I was doing Frankenstein as a musicale and I spray painted this kid silver -- all over. They had to rush him to the hospital. 'Cause he had that thing when your pores can't breathe... he lived 'cause luckily I didn't paint the soles of his feet."

    • The monologue at the beginning of "Hello Twelve, Hello Thirteen", as well. Telling a priest at confessional you have gonorrhea... as a virgin.
    • How about pretty much anything Val says?

"I've never seen the Red Shoes. I'd never heard of the Red Shoes. I don't give a fuck about the Red Shoes!"

  • 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. http://www.angelfire.com/musicals/acl/fromtheshow/monologues.html
    • "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.
