* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Peggy Sue is the only person Richard isn't snarky to at the reunion. It's implied he likes Charlie because a) he likes Peggy Sue and by extension Charlie, and b) one scene has 1960 Charlie praising Richard as a nice guy who wrote a book, hinting that Charlie never bullied him. (In fact, it's probable that Peggy Sue and Charlie as a couple would have been friendly to him post-high school.)

* BestYearsOfYourLife: Uncomfortably averted. Despite being dropped back into the drama of being a senior in high school with all the attendant relationship issues, social issues, and parental pressure, Peggy Sue spends most of the movie feeling like it's true. Her grandparents are alive, she can still be close to her sister, her terrible marriage hasn't happened yet, and she doesn't have any adult worries like house payments. Her unborn children are the only thing she seems to miss.

* FutureLoser: CharlieCharlie, though that's debatable. All we know is he was estranged from Peggy Sue and has a really wacky television commercial akin to Crazy Eddie.
