Obvious things about a creative work you realize after the millionth time (OPEN SPOILERS POSSIBLE)

I have posted about working for a year on an annotated versions of Ira Levin's "Rosemary's Baby," only to look at the cover six months later and realize:

Rosemary's Baby.
Rose-mary's Baby
Mary's Baby

Yesterday I was walking down the street singing "Yellow Submarine"

In our yellow submarine

when it hit me:

To make blue green, yellow is added.

Give me some more examples of obvious things you didn't notice till much later.
