* HumansArePsychicInTheFuture: Well, not the CrapsackWorld future from which Mimzy was sent, but an even later future in which a teacher tells the story of Emma and Noah to an assembled class. This is justified because [[spoiler:Emma gains psychic powers from the objects from the future and then gives some of her DNA to Mimzy. Said DNA was then used to "cure" the sick people of the future, and presumably was responsible for their new abilities.]]

* MsViceGirl: Naomi is incredibly eager with her dabbling in/appropriating vaguely Eastern mysticism... mainly because her husband Larry had a dream several years ago that perfectly predicted a winning set of lottery numbers, and she's been trying to strike it lucky again.

Added DiffLines:

* SageLoveInterest: Naomi is one to Larry, with her Eastern mysticism and New Agey philosophy. Subverted a bit when it's shown that she's not above earthly temptations (like winning in a lottery), but her sage advice is still very helpful to the main characters.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: SWAT teams ''storm the house''. They corral ''everyone'' in the living room. Then the little girl in this family you were told to contain with extreme prejudice asks to get something out of her room? ''Of course'' she can go up unsupervised.
** They actually do send a person to go with her.

** The parents didn't even know about Emma's seizure. Noah called them while it was happening, but Emma woke up before they entered the room. Mrs. Wilder threw out the objects because she thought all the "weirdness" would stop once she tossed them.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: There is no DNA in tears. Well, technically, anyway. But "Emma's DNA from comparatively rapidly shedding epithelial skin cells that were likely transferred from her cheek to her tear" doesn't sound as good as "Emma's tears".
