-->You may not have experienced the shit that I did. But you loved hearing about it, didnít you? You are afraid to be alive, you are afraid to live. Youíre a hypocrite. Youíre a conformist. Youíre a liar. I opened up to you and you judged me. You are an ASSHOLE. You are an ASSHOLE!

* InsaneEqualsViolent: This is mostly averted. Of all the characters, Pat is the only one who has displayed violence. Even then there were only a few incidents. One [[spoiler: was purely an accident when he hit his mother on the face a little]]. Another time was to break up a fight and defend his brother from some racist assholes. One was much more violent, however, as he nearly beat to death the man who he caught having sex with his wife. In his house. While his wedding song was playing. And after he asked PAT to leave. Perfectly sane men would've done the same thing. For the most part, he really is a nice guy who doesn't want to hurt people.

Added DiffLines:

* IsntItIronic: Pat and Nikki's wedding song was "My Chérie Amour", which is really an unrequited love song to a girl who doesn't notice the singer's existence. Not only is this a bad omen for the marriage itself (and aptly playing on the stereo when he catches her cheating on him), it also foreshadows just how one-sided Pat's attempts at reconciliation are going to be.

* ManicPixieDreamGirl: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]]. Someone who so fully rejects societal norms may have other reasons besides whimsy. Someone who devotes all their time to fixing someone else may be a StalkerWithACrush or hired by the guyís family. And someone who will sleep with a self-absorbed manic-depressive they barely know may have her own emotional or psychological problems.



* SeparatedAtBirthCasting: Jennifer Lawrence and Creators/JuliaStiles are very believable as sisters.

*** Also, don't hit his wife, even if it's an accident. Really, don't.
