* FridgeBrilliance: Why didn't River just tell John about [[spoiler: their first meeting, without going through the whole rabbit ordeal]]? At first it seems that it's only due to her [[spoiler: Asperger's]], but revisiting the first part of the story, it becomes apparent that she wanted, in her own way, to bridge the gap between them by [[spoiler: reminding him of (arguably) the only time when they truly connected]], and that wouldn't work unless he remembered on his own. When you realize that River made the [[spoiler:rabbits to try and remind Johnny of their first meeting. And that when the white rabbits didn't work, she tried a yellow one, because the moon is yellow. And that when the yellow one didn't work, she managed to make one with a yellow belly (for the moon) and blue head and feet (for the sky and stars). To add an extra layer to it... Her wedding dress was yellow and blue.]]

* EsotericHappyEnding: Johnny fulfills his wish; But... because they're only changing memories, not the past, [[spoiler: the real Johnny dies never knowing what his wife was trying to tell him, and the real River dies knowing Johnny never understood/remembered what she kept trying to hint at. Well, assuming ''any'' of it was ever real to begin with]]. [[{{YMMV}} Somewhat]] dulled [[spoiler: by the final sequence prior to the credits rolling and after Johnny flatlines. We see him approach River against a plain white background, both as children, and hand her the platypus before sitting down next to her, strongly implying that they're at least TogetherInDeath.]] But still...

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Johnny's mom is subject to this with her limited appearance. What we know is [[spoiler:after Joey died, she underwent SanitySlippage and deliberately gave Johnny the Beta Blockers to block the trauma of his death]]. From there two interpretations arise. The first is [[spoiler:that she is abusive, forcibly editing her surviving son's memory, and tricking herself into believing he was Joey, her preferred son, in a twisted case of ParentalFavoritism]]. The other is [[spoiler:that she gave Johnny the blockers to save him from the trauma of losing a twin, and her calling him Joey down the line is just her own fragile mental state confusing the two]].

* {{Tsundere}}: Eva. She, on the surface, seems kinda cold and methodical, but is shown to be much more kindhearted than what is [[SugarAndIcePersonality readily apparent]].

** Part of the code in the background when you prepare a memento says, "Step twice into the river of life." If you're familiar with philosophy, this is based on a quote from Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher who said, "No man ever steps in the same river twice."

* EpilepticTrees: A handful of [[FreezeFrameBonus Freeze Frame Bonuses]] in the first game gave rise to a number of theories as to the "real" nature of the game, with one of the most pervasive being that the entire story is actually one of the player characters dying and going back through their memories, the same way they did for their patients. The evidence for these theories was pretty circumstantial... until the second minisode was released, which has given some legs to a few fan theories and kicked the speculation into overdrive.
