  • Crowning Moment of Funny It provides the page quote, all right? That tell you anything about it?
  • Ear Worm: "Comedy Tonight"
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In the movie anyway. Philia: "3 and 5, I always confuse the two."
  • Hilarity Ensues: Essentially a two-word summary of the play.
  • Ho Yay: Tons of it between Pseudolus and Hysterium, and also some later in the show between Hysterium and everyone, due to the cross-dressing hijinks.
    • Also Pseudolus and Hysterium sing a reprise of "Lovely," which was originally the young (heterosexual) lovers' falling-in-love song. At first it's just Pseudolus trying to convince Hysterium to go along with the crossdressing thing, but then Hysterium starts really getting into it and the Ho Yay skyrockets from there.

Hysterium: I'm so lovely
Pseudolus: Literally lovely
Both: That the world will never seem the same!
Pseudolus: You're so lovely
Both: That the world will never seem the same!
