-->You may not have experienced the shit that I did. But you loved hearing about it, didn’t you? You are afraid to be alive, you are afraid to live. You’re a hypocrite. You’re a conformist. You’re 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.

For the most part, he "My Chérie Amour", which is really is an unrequited love song to a nice guy girl who doesn't want 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 hurt people.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 guy’s 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.

* GenreBusting: The closest way to describe the film is a [[RomanticComedy Romantic]] {{Dramedy}} where the leads have clinical psychological issues.

* DownToTheLastPlay: Somewhat inverted, [[spoiler: the final dance has the two performing rather well, but botch the climactic move where he holds her above him (she gets up there, but it is clumsy looking). That gives greater tension when they are waiting for their score, when the last judge rates them high enough to average a 5. The whole dance subverts the trope anyway, as they go in for a personal goal and not to be the best]].
