Added DiffLines:

* GenderBlenderName: Ashley plans to name the baby Junebug if it's a girl - and still nickname it that if it turns out to be a boy.


Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* MoralityPet: Ashley is clearly the pet of the family, not just George. It's she who bonds with Madeleine the most and the one who brings Peg's softer side come out.
* NotSoStoic: Peg is an ice queen for most of the film but [[spoiler: bawls her eyes out when Ashley loses the baby]].


Added DiffLines:

* PomPomGirl: Ashley wished to be a cheerleader in school but didn't make the squad.

to:

* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The three women; Peg (Blond), (Blonde), Madeline (Brunette) and Redhead (Ashley).(Ashley).
* CainAndAbel: George is the successful brother who has an established career in Chicago and is adored by Peg. Johnny is the high school dropout who still lives at home and is looked down on by everyone. It's heavily implied that Peg favouring George drove them apart.



* FourthDateMarriage: George and Ashley married only after a week of knowing each other.

to:

* DefrostingIceQueen: The final conversation between Peg and Madeleine has the former talking casually about George, implying she's warming to her new daughter-in-law.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Johnny trying to tape a program about meerkats acts as foreshadowing that he does still love Ashley after all.
* FourthDateMarriage: George and Ashley Madeleine married only after a week of knowing each other.


Added DiffLines:

* LikeBrotherAndSister: Ashley is a real MoralityPet for George and he treats her as if she's his little sister throughout the film.


Added DiffLines:

* OutOfCharacterMoment: A scene shows Johnny at work - and he's a different person. He's happy and joking around, which a lot of viewers have taken as an indicator that Peg's influence is what makes him so sullen around the house.
* ParentalFavouritism: George is clearly Peg's preferred son. If this extends to in-laws, then Ashley is also her preferred daughter-in-law.


Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: Eugene can't find his screwdriver, which he mentions at various points in the film. In one of the final scenes, Madeleine finds it in the baby's room.


Added DiffLines:

* SugarAndIcePersonality: Eugene describes Peg as such.
