** An alternate ending for ''Vanilla Sky'' (more in line with the original film) is perhaps even more heart wrenching. [=McCabe=] [[spoiler:[[DefiantToTheEnd ultimately does not except the revelation]], begging and pleading with David not to listen to "Tech Support" even as he says goodbye to Sophia. At one point [=McCabe=] says "We can defend the kingdom together", a clear reference to David's late estranged father, and perhaps an offer to become the father figure David wished he had in life (and his intended role in the lucid dream according to Ventura). Are his words out of genuine love for David, or an act of self-preservation? Either way, it's hard not to feel for him when he screams at David not to jump just seconds before he leaps from the rooftop.]]

** Arguably even worse in ''Open Your Eyes''. Antonio ([=McCabe's=] counterpart) is [[spoiler:reduced to a blubbering mess by the same revelation]]. Cesar (David's counterpart) [[spoiler:seems sympathetic, but "Tech Support" callously tells him to pay him no mind. [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman He's not a real person, after all]]]].

* Early on, when David is trying to ditch Juliana.
--> I think she is the saddest girl ever to hold a martini.

* [[spoiler: Sophia's]] death scene.
* [=McCabe's=] impassioned and completely devastated insistence that [[spoiler: "I'm real."]]

to:

* [[spoiler: Sophia's]] death scene. \n The use of Todd Rundgren's "Can We Still Be Friends?" is quite fitting.
* [=McCabe's=] impassioned defense of [[spoiler:his existence as a real person outside David's virtual world]] even when the evidence clearly proves him wrong. Particularly devastating when he [[spoiler:calmly accepts his fate and completely devastated insistence that [[spoiler: "I'm real."]]says goodbye to David.]]
