* ImpliedLoveInterest: Early in the film Bender asks Andy & Claire if they are dating and even asked them if they had sex yet - which prompted the first real outburst of emotion from either of them.

Fairly quickly, however, Bender and Claire, and later on Andy and Allison, begin showing (incresingly larger and more frequent) signs of interest in one another.

* TheUnreveal: [[spoiler: Did the kids remain friends, or did they drift back into their respective cliques when they had to go back to school? The movie ends as they're going home after detention, leaving the question open-ended.]] The discussion they have near the end suggests that[[spoiler:, come Monday, everything is going back to Status Quo, and no, they won't still be friends.]]
--->'''Claire:''' "Oh, be honest, Andy... [[spoiler:if Brian came walking up to you in the hall on Monday, what would you do? I mean picture this, you're there with all the sports. I know exactly what you'd do, you'd say hi to him and when he left you'd cut him all up so your friends wouldn't think you really liked him!]]"
And yet at the same time, [[spoiler:it suggests that it ''doesn't'' mean that.]] It's ''that'' vague.
*** At the very least, it seems as though Allison and Brian might remain friends, as Brian promises he [[spoiler: wouldn't do that to any of them]], and Allison [[spoiler: doesn't have any friends, nor does she think the kind of friends she'd have would mind]]. Similarly, Andy and Claire already knew each other slightly from their overlapping social circles.
