--->'''Samantha''': My parents had been fighting for as long as I could remember. Never really bothered me though, quite the opposite in fact. It was comfort, and consistency.



* BewareTheNiceOnes: Do ''not'' fake your death in front of Chrissy. She's got a hell of a right hook.

to:

* BewareTheNiceOnes: One of Roberta's coping mechanisms in dealing with her mother's death is trying to make death funny by faking her own. While on the way to Greenfield, the girls stop for a swim at a lake and Roberta fakes drowning, which Chrissy smacks her for. Do ''not'' fake your death in front of Chrissy. She's got a hell of a right hook.



--->'''Samantha''':The Treehouse was supposed to bring us more independence, but what the summer actually brought us was independence from each other.



* DisappearedDad: Samantha's father walks out on the family. This is especially significant because of the time period ("At the time, no one had ever gotten a divorce, and the last thing I wanted was to be different.")

Call me a fool but I actually thought he'd be back, a wishful notion I held on to for years. At the time, no one in the Gaslight Addition had ever gotten a divorce, and the last thing I wanted was to be different.different from my friends.")



--->'''Samantha''':Thomas Wolfe once said, "You can't go home again". That might be good for old Tom, but he wasn't a chick who made a pact with her friends when she was twelve to get together when any of them needed each other. So here I am, driving back to my childhood home in Indiana, a place I can say I never wanted to see again.

--->'''Roberta''':(crying) 'My dad lied to me, he told me this beautiful angel swooped down to earth and he carried her away, before she had a second to feel any pain.' In reality, Roberta's mother suffered horrible injuries in the crash and lingered in agony before dying the following night.



* MacGuffin: Crazy Pete, an elderly man from the neighborhood whose name in the community derives from the fact that he only comes out at night. At the end of the film, he is revealed to be Dear Johnny's father, and his only coming out at night is his coping mechanism in dealing with the grief over the loss of his family even 25 years later. Evidently, he'd been out at a bar the night the murders took place, and the guilt over not being there to protect his wife and son led to him being unable to face people, or even himself. The girls apparently befriended him in the following years, although until the present sequence only Samantha knew he was Dear Johnny's father. Teeny mentioned that after moving to California she'd send him a bit of cash every year, but the previous year it had been returned, after which Roberta informed her that he had died.
---'''Crazy Pete''': Samantha, things are going to happen in your life that you can't stop. But that's no reason to shut out the world. There's always a reason for the good and the bad.
