** I don't see how this would make him 'creepy and manipulative'. Whenever the subject was hinted at he would get visibly withdrawn, his voice would go flat, etc. If he's lying, it could just mean things had screwed up once before and he just wanted a fresh start. Then it starts to repeat itself and he knows there's nothing he can really do about it.

*** Or ''pets''.

* FridgeBrilliance: FridgeBrilliance: ** The first time we see Lacuna, it's a shiny doctors' office. Later, we see a run-down van and cobbled-together equipment. The shiny doctors' office is a false memory implanted by Lacuna; it doesn't exist. ** Clementine's reasons for breaking up with Joel are how he never opened up to her. In trying to keep the memory of her he puts her in all the dark places he never let her into.

** Joel doesn't remember "Oh My Darling Clementine" because, when trying to save her, Clem was in a memory of Joel's mom singing the song. Clem got erased from that memory, which by extension erased the song.

*** What this troper gathered was that they didn't take memories going "off-map" as a deliberate conscious effort to fight the procedure, but that they thought it was subconscious, unintentional, or just inexplicably happening. The fact that Howard was originally as shocked by it as his assistant shows that they might have not seen it happen before.

*** [[spoiler: Regardless, we see no proof of this (Howard not getting his memory wiped) on screen. As far as we can tell, [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation he could have kept his memories to do the opposite thing Patrick is doing to Clem]]]].
