* '''Reconstructed''': When they finally ''do'' fill him in, he understands why they didn't before - even ''they'' wish they never knew.




to:

* '''Plotted a Good Waste''': The incident is somewhat expanded upon, but only by its consequences: It's not really about what happened, but about the effects it had, which are increasingly shown over the course of the story to have been terrible. By the end, the audience don't really want to know what happened way back when, and feel fine with the story ending without explaining it.

* '''Downplayed''': ???It's easy enough to guess what the incident is that it's not much of a mystery. "There's no way you can make a souffle! Remember the toffee incident?" "Well, I cleaned it up, didn't I?"

* '''Played For Laughs''': ''see Parodied.''

to:

* '''Played For Laughs''': ''see Parodied.''The specific incident is very trivial, and not of much consequence. Charlie, asking Bob and Alice about the event, thought it much larger than it was for how much effort it took to get them to tell him about it.
