* TitleDrop: A DeletedScene showed graffiti with the misspelled "Happyness". Unfortunately, since it ''was'' deleted, it makes the movie title... strange.

* DaycareNightmare: Gardner has to leave his son at a daycare while he desperately tries to make ends meet for his family. However, he becomes increasingly displeased with the service because the children seem to receive no education at all, have to watch TV the whole day, and a mural outside the daycare spells "Happyness" rather than "Happiness", thus giving us the movie title.

* BIgApplesauce: Linda moves to New York early on in the film and isn't seen again.



* BrilliantButLazy: Deconstructed, Chris is shown to be quite smart and quite a hard worker, but he made a big mistake investing in a mediocre medical device that he had to store and sell himself. It didn't matter how hard he worked, he was stuck with thousands of dollars worth of equipment that he HAD to sell and couldn't, making it seem like he couldn't hold down a job. It wasn't until he sold off the last one he was able to lock down the internship and get a job as a broker.
