* UnwantedAssistance: Lizzie in understandably displeased by Fred's attempts to make her lighten up. It isn't until the climax that she realizes why she needed him all along.

* BrokenAesop: So, the way to reclaim happiness in your life is to reconnect with your imaginary friend from childhood, who proceeds to destroy anything and everything without a second thought to the ramifications on your life. The same friend who also set up an actual burglary of her own house as a child, which sent her father (the parent who actually cared for her) briefly to jail. Riiiight...

Added DiffLines:

* VisibleToBelievers: Fred is an ImaginaryFriend who was sealed in a Jack-In-The-Box for many years, until his creator accidentally releases him. Presumably if he hadn't been sealed up he'd have been out in the world even if he had no longer been believed in.
