See Pair the Spares below. Andrew and Paul are also shown seated at a table together during these couples' debut although Paul's arm candy gals are there with him too.
Monique makes fun of Viola's supposed lack of curves though she and Viola don't have that much difference in their, err, proportions. The tagline pokes fun at this by laying it out and emphasizing the gender disguising.
When Olivia walks into the cafe, the guy's POV and the camera's shifts to her backside.

She unknowingly kisses the real Sebastian, who has no idea who this infatuated girl is; not that he's complaining Channing Tatum, who spends a lot of the movie without a shirt on.
He's even introduced shirtless. Viola's ex-boyfriend Justin as well, and Viola's mom agrees.

Naked People Are Funny: In the middle of the game, Sebastian and then Viola are asked to prove which sex they are.

This goes about as badly as one might expect in a comedy, but does have the inadvertent benefit of directing Toby back to the Hollywood Homely Eunice when he sees her with "Sebastian" on a double date: Introducing your brother to your friend who you think will be good for him and then them going to a party together is rather less silly than the actual marriage that happens in the play.
Toby and Eunice as well, they even appear at the debutante party at the end. For he was more than over shoes in love.

- William Shakespeare quotes about love
And writers say, as the most forward bud Is eaten by the canker ere it blow, Even so by love the young and tender wit Is turn'd to folly, blasting in the bud, Losing his verdure even in the prime. How wayward is this foolish love, That, like a testy babe, will scratch the nurse And presently, all humbled, kiss the rod.
Act I, scene 2, line O, how this spring of love resembleth Th' uncertain glory of an April day, Which now shows all the beauty of the sun, And by and by a cloud takes all away! Act I, scene 3, line Didst thou but know the inly touch of love, Thou wouldst as soon go kindle fire with snow, As seek to quench the fire of love with words. I do not seek to quench your love's hot fire, But qualify the fire's extreme rage, Lest it should burn above the bounds of reason.
