* FreudianTrio: A short but blatant moment that overlaps with the Shoulder Devil/Shoulder Angel trope. A little after the 26-minute mark, Hart is in a communal shower, standing in the middle of two students. The student on his right warns him against his new relationship, advocating chastity; the student on his left warns him against chastity, advocating that "you grab onto her boobs and you don't let go."
