* HeavenAbove:
** Bruce starts his journey with God by cursing and yelling at the sky as if God's hiding behind a cloud. When He does meet Bruce, he does so by climbing down a ladder (implied to go directly into Paradise) and then teleporting the two to Mt. Everest, which is so high up Bruce thinks he's died and gone to Heaven. [[spoiler:When he does die and briefly go to Heaven in the third act, the camera rapidly zooms up and away from Bruce's body. When he's revived, the camera rapidly zooms in and down onto Bruce's face.]]
** When Bruce begs God not to leave him, he appeals to a need for answers. Creaotr/MorganFreeman's God laughs and says that the problem with humanity is that they keep looking "up." Up here seems to refer to the divine plan for each person that only God can know, meaning God is saying to focus on what is rather than what should be.

* DudeNotFunny: In-Universe example. When Bruce appears on the peak of Mount Everest, God makes a joke that makes Btruce thinjk he's dead. He isn't, God is just messing with him. Bruce's response is this trope.

* UngratefulBastard: In a cosmic sense, Bruce. He works at a news studio where even if his stories are in-glamorous he gets on the air on occasion, before his breakdown his boss gave him a shot at a high-profile live story and indicated there would be more if he did well on it, and when it comes to his personal life he lives in a very nice apartment with Jennifer Aniston as his live-in girlfriend. Somehow, this is not enough for him.

** As it turns out, Bruce really was free on "the 7th at 7" to help God with the mops.
