* UnhappilyEverAfter: The show's original premise was that it was about Jack and Jenny getting a divorce, and this is how it was in Season One. But they got married again in Season Two, making many of the show's elements into TheArtifact, including the [[ArtifactTitle title]]. In Season Five, Jenny left the show entirely, so that this time around, Jack was also a divorcer, but one who was no longer in the position of having to see his ex-wife on a regular basis.
