The main characters are as follows:

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Melvin is a successful and prolific author which is why he can insult his publisher and get away with it. And since he works from home he doesn't have to interact with any other colleagues.

* NippleAndDimed: One of the rare examples of this happening in a non-R rated film; just as Carol knocks on Melvin's door she realizes in rapid order that A, her shirt is soaking wet; B, she isn't wearing a bra; and C, she's very cold(if you take our meaning). The only option she can come up with is to grab her shirt and hold it away from her breasts for the duration of their talk.

Interestingly enough, while leaving Melvin's later in the scene, Carol is clearly wearing a bra (the shots of her back plainly show a bra outline).

* MsFanservice: There really is no reason for Carol to get a SexySoakedshirt scene or prepare to bathe in front of Simon other than it appeals to the audience.
