Added DiffLines:

* MeetTheInLaws: Anne's parents are visiting her during the duration of the story, and she and Thomas often conflict when his need to help the ghosts prevents him from meeting them.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Harrison delights in encouraging Thomas' performing chops and introducing him to Franco Corelli's music as a child, but even he asks Thomas to hold a page in a nudie magazine for him to see.


Added DiffLines:

* TeamMom: Penny's ''first'' thought once she has died and gotten over the confusion of "surviving" the crash is about her kids, and she's the most mature of the ghosts in their bonding with Thomas. Even when he's become an adult, she's not above scolding him as if she ''was'' his mother.

* ButNowIMustGo: After a serious heart-to-heart conversation, the ghosts decide they're doing much more harm than good in young Thomas' life, and they willingly make themselves invisible to him, telling him they need to say goodbye and go away. The only problem is that they're ''still'' supernaturally tethered to him, and this abandonment has left him with serious trust issues well into adulthood, leaving them all at odds when it comes time to finish their business on earth.

*ImpededMessenger: An angel was supposed to come from heaven at the moment of the ghosts' deaths to inform them of the rules of securing passage to the afterlife, but he or she never showed up, leaving them stuck with Thomas for seemingly no reason.
* LoveIsAWeakness: Thomas has grown up afraid to commit to his relationships due to losing people he cared about (the ghosts) as a child, and the cycle is repeating with his current girlfriend Anne.



* PowerPerversionPotential: Milo often tries to exploit his invisibility to look up women's dresses, and at one point has a young, blindfolded Thomas turn pages and unfold spreads in a porn magazine.



* {{Reincarnation}}: The reason why it's suddenly urgent for the ghosts to finish their business--they're needed because new babies are being born soon.
