When the matchmaker grabs Mulan's hand her palm is shown to be covered in ink. She then unwittingly paints herself a goatee. However, immediately after this she grabs the teapot's handle but no ink rubs off onto it. The ink miraculously disappears from her palm as well.
When Mulan is reading the wall depicting her ancestry, what she is really reading are the credits of the film (written in chinese characters).
