* {{Flanderization}}: Deliberately invoked. Michael does have a problem with throwing himself into his work and isn't the nicest guy, but [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold does clearly love his family]] and his FatalFlaw is a lot of the misguided decisions he makes are out of his love for them. As Morty explains, Michael whenever he's on "auto-pilot" only exhibits the first set of traits due to the fact that they're the more common ones he displays. It plays a major part in Michael coming to terms with his flaws.

Added DiffLines:

* DisproportionateRetribution: After neighborhood kid O'Doyle constantly makes fun of him, Michael decides to get back at him by not only telling O'Doyle's mother that O'Doyle had given him the cigar he was smoking, but that he thinks there's marijuana inside of it. O'Doyle may have been a jerk, but he didn't really deserve a punishment for something he didn't do invlolving drugs.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: Michael's over-dedication to his work ends up ruining this life, and Morty points out that it would happen with or without the remote. By learning his lesson, he is finally able to enjoy the little things of life and be happy with his family.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: Michael's Inverted; Michael chioses to be unhappy from the start, as his over-dedication to his work ends up ruining this life, and Morty points out that it would happen with or without the remote. By learning his lesson, he is finally able to enjoy the little things of life and be happy with his family.

* BadFuture

* BadFutureBadFuture: Unsurprisingly, the cause of the main character's HeelRealization.



* BodyHorror: Due to lack of exercise (and his junk food binge-eating while working), one "fast-forward" of ''ten years'' takes Michael from Adam Sandler-sized to Morbidly Obese. [[spoiler:Even worse when he goes into a coma for 6 years and loses ONLY the fat.]]

* BodyHorror: Due to lack of exercise (and his junk food binge-eating while working), working, which is pretty much ''all the time''), one "fast-forward" of ''ten years'' takes Michael from Adam Sandler-sized to Morbidly Obese. [[spoiler:Even worse when he goes into a coma for 6 years and loses ONLY the fat.]]



**** It's still implied, however, that Ben will still become fat in the future.



* ICanStillFight



* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Thanks to the constant time skips caused by the remote "learning" to skip to promotions and other work-related successes, we see glimpses of a future where [[EverythingIsAnIPodInTheFuture Everything Is An iPod]]. Of course, it's a bit confusing as to ''when'' they take place; the first time skip of any substantial amount is shown to have transported Michael to the year 2017, but the other time skips are left completely ambiguous, other than that the last one [[spoiler:where he dies shortly afterwards]] and thus would likely be somewhere in the 2030s considering he's probably in his 30s at the beginning.

* DawsonCasting: Inverted. Katie Cassidy was 19 at the time plays the oldest version of Michael's daughter. Credits list her age at 27.
** Played Straight with Jonah Hill as the middle version of Michael's Son. It doesn't help that he's older than the above and playing a character 10 years younger hers.

* FatBastard: At the age of 7 it's implied that Ben is going to become one of these; he's a glutton who eats ice-creams and tries to steal twinkies. He later eats just as unhealthily as his father before the time skipping happens. It's only daily exercise with his father that prevents him from getting fat.

* ShesAllGrownUp: After the time skip, he's very disturbed by the fact that his little girl has grown into an attractive young woman.



* TheUnfavorite: Michael's daughter, Samantha. While he has several heart-to-heart moments with his son Ben during the time skips, he seemingly has nothing to say to her that isn't related to her breasts.

to:

* TheUnfavorite: Unintentional, but it certainly comes across that way with Michael's daughter, daughter Samantha. While he has several heart-to-heart moments with his son Ben during the time skips, he seemingly has nothing to say to no similar scenes with her, except for a RunningGag about her that isn't related to her having breasts.
