Not a lot of people tried this, maybe four or five all together. So here are the answers.
hypnotized - Jane Annie "She is hypnotized!"
transmogrify - The Mountebanks "Transmogrift here into friars austere"
indolent - The Nautch Girl "Beneath the sky of blue, the indolent Hindu"
landlord - Haddon Hall "Down with landlord, down with land"
cellar-flap - Rose of Persia "as he danced his cellar-flap"
asylum - turns out this appears in multiple places so it doesn't count
empurple - The Beauty Stone "...whose giant shadow, rising from the deep, empurples the blue sea"
edelweiss - The Mountaineers "...where the edelweiss blooms in the snow."
chequeless - His Majesty "Then I shall marry an artist who chequeless is"
apparition - another one that appears in multiple places
tourney - this one too
That was fun. Maybe the list was too hard...
