* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Gordie and Chris eventually stop hanging out with Teddy and Vern. Chris managed to be better than his family, but was killed while trying to break up a fight. And a grown up Gordie is an apparently wealthy writer and has a good relationship with his son.]]



* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: In the night, the four boys hear piercing cries in the woods that might be a wildcat or some other animal....and might be Ray Brower's screaming ghost. Gordie, half in and out of sleep, sees—or thinks he sees—"something white and shapeless steal through the trees like a grotesquely ambulatory bedsheet." (Given that this ''is'' adapted from Stephen King story, there's no telling what it actually was.)
