* LightEqualsHope: After Dan has rejected her, Alex siths on the floor of her apartment with a broken lamp. She has the switch in her hand and is clicking it back and forth. Click: lights on. Click: lights off. It's an indication she's (consciously or unconsciously) weighing her choices. Lights: leave him alone and move on with her life. Dark: Go all vengeful stalker and ruin his life. At the end of the scene she clicks the switch one last time to leave her sitting in darkness. Her behavior becomes increasingly unhinged from that point forward.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse?: Dan's lawyer buddy and his wife, apparently good friends with Dan and his wife, disappear halfway through the movie. The lawyer's last scene is warning Dan that Alex could sue him for child support, but that's the last we see of him.

* [[spoiler: BetterManHandleTheMurderWeapon: Dan takes a butcher knife away from Alex after the fight at her apartment. Note the lingering closeup of his hand on the handle as he places it back on the counter. In the original ending, it's the same knife she uses to kill herself with and try to frame him for murder]]

** Dan: Commits adultery, breaking & entering, assault and intimidation. He nevers faces any legal consequences for his crimes against Alex. [[spoiler:His rabbit gets killed, his innocent wife gets hospitalized, but he suffers very little physical harm. He never has to take responsibility for his unborn child. And in the end, his wife apparently decides to take his lying, cheating ass back.]] Basically, everyone else suffers more for his transgressions than he does.
