* TheOner: The movie opens on a long unbroken helicopter shot circling the Statue of Liberty to right outside the window on the Staten Island Ferry, with a match cut to a tracking shot of the packed ferry and finally ending where Tess and Cyn are sitting.

* ChekhovsSkill: More like Chekhov' s Bad Habit. Viewers will note TH Tess has a tendency to take out her datebook, often unnecessarily, and forget about it. This ends up tipping Katherine off to what she's been up to when she leaves it at her place and she looks through it.
