* EitherOrProphecy: Played with both times Coraline visits Misses Spink and Forcible and they give her supernatural advice. With each visit, they present conflicting pronouncements about Coraline's situation, and each time one of them makes a significant claim...yet the other also gives a valid, if less pertinent answer:
** When reading the tea leaves, Miss Spink sees a "very peculiar hand" crawling around, and indeed, [[spoiler: peculiar hands are a feature of the Other Mother, and one of them detaches and causes problems for Coraline later]]. Miss Forcible sees a giraffe, which is less relevant, to be sure, but one of the toys in the Other bedroom is part giraffe.
** When giving Coraline the stone, Miss Spink says it's for "bad things", and Miss Forcible says it's for "lost things". Forcible is closer, as it is able to highlight the [[spoiler: hidden ghost eyes]] when looked through, but by that point, the entire situation is "bad things", so Spink isn't entirely wrong.

Coraline Jones moves from Pontiac, Michigan with her mother and father to the Pink Palace Apartments in Ashland, Oregon- an old house subdivided into three residences. With her parents frantically working on a gardening catalog in order to make ends meet and paying little attention to her, Coraline begins to feel neglected. While exploring the house, she discovers a small door with a brick wall behind it. That night, she is awoken by a mouse in her room, which she chases to the small door. She opens it, but instead of a brick wall, she finds a long, glowing passage, leading to another world.

* {{Motif}}: Buttons, spiders, and the Other Mother's hand are prominent images in the film. Much more subtly is the mirror, which marks the significant tonal and play reversal halfway through the movie, and brings to mind the idea of reflections being familiar yet inaccurate, like the Other World itself.
