* WaxingLyrical: Jed's line "I am never, ever sick at sea" from his AGodAmI speech is from ''Theatre/HMSPinafore''. Doubles as AuthorAppeal, since AaronSorkin, who co-wrote the script, is a major Creator/GilbertAndSullivan fan.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodVictimsBadVictims: Jed's lawyer warns him that he's basically screwed, describing Tracy and Andy as the perfect young couple with lovely dreams for their future--"That is a Norman Rockwell painting, and you slashed it to bits with your scalpel". But when Andy learns that Tracy was unfaithful to him, he urges Jed to continue fighting the lawsuit. Jed truthfully points out that as far as his situation goes, it doesn't matter what kind of a person Tracy was, but Andy contradicts him, claiming, "The jury thought they were dealing with Snow White. What if Snow White was sleeping with her lawyer?" [[spoiler: erroneously believing that he was Tracy's lover]]

From there the story proceeds with several twists and turns. Several layers of deception and misdirection complicate the story. As RogerEbert put it, the film is "jampacked" with "blind alleys and red herrings".

* AGodAmI: Jed has a self-described God complex and gives a speech about it:
-->'''Jed:''' I have an M.D. from Harvard, I am board certified in cardio-thoracic medicine and trauma surgery, I have been awarded citations from seven different medical boards in New England, and I am never, ever sick at sea. So I ask you; when someone goes into that chapel and they fall on their knees and they pray to God that their wife doesn't miscarry or that their daughter doesn't bleed to death or that their mother doesn't suffer acute neural trauma from post-operative shock, who do you think they're praying to? Now, go ahead and read your Bible, Dennis, and you go to your church, and, with any luck, you might win the annual raffle, but if you're looking for God, he was in operating room number two on November 17, and he doesn't like to be second guessed. You ask me if I have a God complex. Let me tell you something:'''I am God'''.
