* BitchInSheepsClothing: Peter appears to have been one of these.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Peter appears is a [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] example: he's not exactly a bitch, just way off the idealized image of him conjured by Lucy (and to have been one some extent by the other members of these.his family).

* NoAntagonist: Except for [[spoiler:real Peter's fiancée]] (who plays a very minor part in what happens anyway), the only antagonist is an awkward situation itself.

* StalkerWithACrush: Lucy's infatuation with Peter initially borders on this, at least a little; although she's under no delusions about the exact nature of her relationship with Peter, she's nevertheless convinced she's in love with and has built up a fantasy scenario of a potential relationship with a man she knows solely a series of second-long interactions through a transit station token booth. She's a lot nicer and sweeter than the usual example, however, and eventually grows out of it over the course of the movie.

It's also more out of her fundamental sadness and loneliness than any serious obsession.

* OneDialogueTwoConversations: At one point, Lucy encounters a co-worker of Peter's who remarks that Peter had had an 'accident' earlier in the year as if Lucy would know all about it. Because Lucy naturally doesn't know a thing about it, she remarks "accident?" in a questioning tone. The co-worker however assumes that her tone is because Peter has been blaming ''him'' for the accident, and begins to rant about it, in the process giving her far more detail than she wanted.

* FeetFirstIntroduction: The first thing we see of Jack is his boots stepping out of his truck.

* FeetFirstIntroduction: The first thing we see of Jack is his boots stepping out of his truck. Jack is the last major character to be introduced, and this shot teases out his introduction by making us wait a few seconds longer to see his face. Focusing on Jack's boots and jeans also highlights his working class lifestyle, as contrasted with Peter's fancier clothes and lifestyle.
