* HeartwarmingInHindsight: Before Mulberry goes to help Melissa [=McCarthy=] prepare for ''Ghostbusters'' in "My Fat Lady", she uses a clip of ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' to demonstrate that she was ActuallyPrettyFunny before becoming pigeonholed as degrading BigFun and FatBastard characters, then hopes, "The damage is bad, but not irreversible. The funny person has to still be inside her, somewhere." In real life, Paul Feig must have managed to find her without Mulberry's help; while the next two roles [=McCarthy=] would play for him ([[Film/{{Spy}} Susan Cooper]] and the aforementioned Abby Yates) do have moments of social awkwardness and clumsiness, they ultimately seem more defined by their intellect and combat skills than their weight. (After the first ''Ghostbusters'' trailer premiered, Peter [[http://www.toonzone.net/first-full-ghostbusters-trailer-arrived-watch-now/ thanked God]] that it at least didn't contain any fat jokes.) Additionally, a Creator/{{Netflix}} ''Gilmore Girls'' revival would give [=McCarthy=] the chance to ''really'' return to her old comedic style.

* HarsherInHindsight: "My Fat Lady" ends with the less crude Creator/MelissaMcCarthy helping ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' earn a reception as glowing as that of ''Film/Ghostbusters1984'', prompting Sony to greenlight yet another ''Ghostbusters'' movie, this time with all male leads. The hopes that ''Ghostbusters'' would boast one of [=McCarthy=]'s least crude performances would eventually come true, but none of the other predictions would. Some time after the release of "My Fat Lady", Sony canceled their plans for another all-male Ghostbusters team.[[note]]Though since this story foresaw an all-white team led by a high-as-a-kite Creator/SethRogen, this would only feel harsh to readers who would have wanted to see this reboot with different actors.[[/note]] Even later, ''Ghostbusters (2016)'' would only earn a SoOkayItsAverage critical reception and box office performance[[note]]a 73% Website/RottenTomatoes score vs. the original's 97%, and a $219M worldwide gross that covered the production budget, but not advertising[[/note]], leaving Sony to question the feasibility of another movie.

*** Kate [=McKinnon=]'s absence from Mulberry's list of alternate female Ghostbusters seems to suggest that [[ItWillNeverCatchOn she doubts McKinnon's potential to become one of her time's greatest comediennes]], which might sound ironic to readers who now [[AndYouThoughtItWouldFail consider her their the funniest star]] of ''Ghostbusters (2016)''.
