* AngstWhatAngst: Some viewers have noticed how quickly [[spoiler: Lorrell gets past Jimmy's death, with her only being sad about it in one scene and then getting back to business as usual. Given the fact that it came out of nowhere, mostly forgotten by everyone other than Effie, C.C. and Marty and that it's a DeathByAdaptation makes one even wonder why he was killed off in the first place.]]

** JerkassWoobie: Effie, not a {{jerkass}} [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold per se]] still counts. Although she was selfish, rude, and self-absorbed at first, she loses her spot and her boyfriend, who she really wanted to stay with while she was pregnant with his baby. It's not that hard to feel sorry for her. Plus, seeing him getting married to Deena must have hurt her a lot.

* DudeNotFunny: An InUniverse example. I'm the film, when Jimmy drops his pants on national television, he expects others to find it funny. The others then criticize him for making a fool out of himself instead.
