* ChildrenAreInnocent: Ellen, aside from being upset at the sight of her parents arguing and that Dan isn't at home. She is almost disturbingly cheerful while playing with Alex, completely unaware that she's been ''kidnapped'', and apparently sleeps through all the commotion at the end.

* [[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]]
