Added DiffLines:

* LoveTriangle: Two mild examples.
--> 1. [[TriangRelations Type 8]] - Henry, Bessie, and George hang out together all the time. George is Henry's platonic best friend. Bessie is married to Henry, but several times it is at least implied that Bessie had more fun with George than with Henry (not *that* kind of fun - this is a family film from the 60's, after all...). At the end of the flashback, Henry asks George to take care of Bessie. At the end of the movie, George mentions that he and Bessie have been happy together for a long time, indicating that they got married after Henry's incident.
--> 2. [[TriangRelations Type 7]] - After Henry's transformation, he falls for Ladyfish, but is still married to Bessie. By the end, he and Bessie both realize it is for the best if they just let go. Henry swims off with Ladyfish, and George and Bessie get married.

* AttractiveBentSpecies: When the main live-action character turns into a cartoon fish, he ends up falling for another cartoon fish.

to:

* ADogNamedDog: Ladyfish. Limpet is the one who names her and she's new to the whole concept of names, so the blame rests squarely with him.
