* OneSceneWonder: Jeff Garlin as Darius' dad.
* TearJerker: Darius's story about [[spoiler:when her mom died - she got out of work and called Darius when she was younger and Darius asked her to get chocolate milk. When she called back to inform her, Darius said "whatever", and that was the last time she spoke to her.]]
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: [[spoiler: The time jump sequence]] was the film's only special effect, and probably cost half the film's budget. It was well worth it.
