* JerkassHasAPoint: Carl is rude and a relatively horrible boss, but he correctly calls out Sully on the older man's foolish stubbornness [[spoiler:and fulls well that Sully won't really run off with his wife Toby when she finally walks out on Carl.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TooGoodToBeTrue: During the final third of the movie, Sully goes through one hell of a lucky streak [[spoiler:as he finds out his trifecta horse finally won - although he was in jail and unable to buy the ticket in time - and later gets out of jail free when the judge dumps on the LawfulStupid deputy. Sully's antagonist Clive Jr. has fled town rather than face angry investors in his failed land development. During the weekly poker game, Sully has the best night of his life, even beating everybody at StripPoker including his BadBoss Carl. And when Carl's wife Toby [[WomanScorned storms in finding Carl with his naked mistress]], Toby proposes to flee with Sully with all of her soon-to-be-ex-husband's money for a Caribbean holiday.]]
** And [[spoiler:it all comes to an end when Toby breaks down in tears in the car, and Sully realizes she's better off fleeing by herself. He also admits to her he needs to stay behind and repair his relationship with his son and grandson.]]

* AbusiveParents: Sully's father was like this to Sully, which is why he doesn't want anything to do with his childhood home.

* AbusiveParents: Sully's father was like this to Sully, which is why he doesn't want anything to do with his childhood home. [[spoiler:It's part of the reason he quit being a father to Peter, afraid he might be just as abusive.]]



** Sully almost [[spoiler:becomes a disappeared Granddad, about to run off with Toby and leaving Peter and Peter's son just as Scully was getting to know them. But he realizes he's better off staying and repairing his own family, letting Toby flee by herself which was probably also good for her.]]



* {{Fanservice}}: Sully jokingly tells Toby during one of their many flirtations that Carl's secretary would flash him whenever he shows up at the office. [[spoiler:One visit, she's there handling paperwork and before Sully leaves Toby pulls up her sweater to reveal she's completely naked otherwise.]]
* FatalFlaw: Sully would be a wealthier man or a more prominent leader of the community if he weren't so stubborn [[spoiler:and fearful that he'd turn out as violent as his father.]]



* JerkassHasAPoint: Carl is rude and a relatively horrible boss, but he correctly calls out Sully on the older man's foolish stubbornness [[spoiler:and fulls well that Sully won't really run off with his wife Toby when she finally walks out on Carl.]]



* MeaningfulEcho: Twice, Toby calls Sully a man among men; the first time, it's not a compliment, but it is the second time.
