* TheImmodestOrgasm: The dinner scene.
Mike gives Abby a pair of vibrator panties, and she wears them to a business meeting but loses the remote. A curious kid finds it and so Abby finds herself trying ''very'' hard to converse and pass off her gasps casually.

Of course, everything goes amazingly well: Abby has started a relationship with Colin, the show's ratings are up, Mike's segment is incredibly popular and he is offered time slots on other networks. This all gets screwed up when Abby cancels a romantic weekend with Colin to convince Mike to stay on the show, and the two end up sharing a passionate kiss that nearly [[OneThingLedToAnother leads to other things]]. However, Mike believes Abby to be totally in love with Colin, and leaves both her and the station while Abby realizes that Colin only loves who she was pretending to be, not who she really is, and so she breaks up with him to chase after Mike.

The two end up broadcasting outside of the same event and end up having a heated argument on the air that ends with them confessing their love for one another, and living happily ever after.

* TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest: Subverted. Abby suspects that the reason Colin is such a sexist is because he had his heart broken by a woman once. But it turns out that it wasn't just ''one'' woman; his sexism developed because he was mistreated in ''every'' relationship he'd ever been in.

A 2009 romantic comedy starring GerardButler and Katherine Heigl, ''The Ugly Truth'' focuses on just that: the ugly truth between the differences of how men and women go about courtship, which can be boiled down to the placement of the hearts on the movie poster.

* UnfortunateImplications: Knowing what she wants makes a woman hysterical ([[YouKnowWhatYouDid picking unreasonable fights]] doesn't), showing her interest makes her desperate ([[BeAWhoreToGetYourMan flaunting her sexuality]] on the first date doesn't), not being a YesMan makes her an insufferable shrew (toying with her partner to make him pine more doesn't).
