Helen Quilley, played by Gwyneth Paltrow, just got fired. And now she missed the [[UsefulNotes/TheLondonUnderground tube train]], too. Some kid was in her way, [[ForWantOfANail slowing her down for a second]].

%%* * BitchAlert: Lydia.Lydia's EstablishingCharacterMoment is ''full'' of this.



* GreenEyedMonster: Lydia is this.



* IronicEcho: In the first time line when James and Helen meet he says "Cheer up, you know what the Creator/MontyPython boys say", and Helen replies "Always look on the bright side?" James then corrects her with "No one expects the Spanish Inquisition." When they meet again in the next time line he says the same thing and Helen responds with the latter line this time.

* KickTheDog: Lydia, who not only makes up a case of food poisoning just so she can harass Helen, but also [[spoiler:pretends she's interested in hiring her, just so Helen will show up at her apartment while Gerry is there so she can reveal Gerry's unfaithfulness to her in the most cruel way possible.]]

* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Gender reversed. James is the Manic Pixie Dream Guy for Helen as he helps her to loosen up and enjoy her life, doing kind of silly things.

* AlternateTimeline: Two time lines - one where Helen got to the tube and one where she didn't.
* TheBechdelTest: Passes on a technicality when Lydia accuses Helen of causing a round of food poisoning with her sandwiches. Of course, the viewer knows Lydia is really just picking on Helen for "stealing" her boyfriend, making this a great example of why the Bechdel Test is not the be all and end all of whether or not a movie is feminist-friendly.

* ForeignRemake: The storyline recycles in a LighterAndFluffier way the plot of an earlier film, ''BlindChance''.

* TruthInTelevision: As many people who have ridden the tube can testify, a single second ''can'' make all the difference between catching and missing a train. The tube keeps London moving, and it's not going to stop for you.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Helen uses this for effect when she walks in on Gerry with Lydia. The first thing she remarks on is not [[YourCheatingHeart the fact he's in bed with another woman]], but instead [[SkewedPriorities the fact that she didn't think he liked]] EltonJohn.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: Serious Beatles fans surely took notice when Helen and Anna direct the taxi driver to take them to "Number 9, Menlove Avenue". Menlove Avenue was the street in Liverpool where John Lennon lived for most of his childhood, and he had a thing for the number nine.

* HarsherInHindsight: The scene with James saying that his first ever girlfriend when they were both pre-pubescent ended when she left him for Gary Glitter is painful to hear now Glitter has been exposed a sexual abuser of young girls.
