* 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 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.]]

** [[spoiler:Izzy describes Johnny as "neurotypical," which is not a word that's thrown around much outside of people who know a few things about the ASD spectrum]]

* 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]].
