** Different codes are used by a renegade mother to covertly contact her son.
** Also by the hospital looking after her... when Nurse Remington is summoned to the front desk, it probably means you have outstayed your welcome.

Added DiffLines:

* InstantDramaJustAddTracheotomy: Discussed. The protagonist frequently runs a con where he deliberately chokes on food to get strangers to perform the Heimlich on him; he is terrified that one day he'll encounter an idiot thinking of this trope coming after him with a steak knife and a ballpoint pen tube.


Added DiffLines:

* TropaholicsAnonymous: The protagonist is a sex addict who routinely picks up women at his Sexaholics Anonymous meetings.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:A nurse condescendingly refers to Paige as ''Miss'' instead of Dr., and receives a lecture as a result. The reason the nurse was talking down to someone of high authority is because Dr. Paige is a patient allowed to live in her doctor delusion. Additionally, Victor attempts to figure out which car is hers, but cannot; it's because she doesn't leave.]]

** The movie has a slightly happier ending, with [[spoiler: Victor's mom still dying and Victor realizing that Paige is a mental patient, but Victor's arrest is for the "rape" one of the mental patients is constantly accusing him of performing, which he is cleared for. He finds Paige and they have loving sex in a airport bathroom]]
