Heartwarming / High Fidelity

  • Barry, despite all his dickishness throughout the film, performs a straight (and very well done) cover of "Let's Get It On" for Rob and Laura to dance to in the finale.
  • Rob gets to thinking about his "Top Five" list of ex-girlfriends, thinking about just checking up on them, maybe seek some forgiveness and redemption, as a way of cleansing himself. Helped along by his fantasizing that Bruce Springsteen is there to give meaning to it all:
    Rob: I want more, I wanna see the others on the big top-five. I want to see Penny and Charlie and Sarah, all of them. You know? Just see 'em and talk to 'em. You know, like a Bruce Springsteen song.
    Bruce Springsteen (playing a riff on his guitar): You call, you ask them how they are and see if they've forgiven you.
    Rob: Yeah, and then I feel good. And they feel good.
    Bruce: They'd feel good, maybe. But you feel better.
    Rob: I'd feel clean and calm.
    Bruce: That's what you're looking for, you know, get ready to start again. It'd be good for you.
    Rob: Great, even.
    Bruce: Give that big final good luck and goodbye to your all time top-five and just move on down the road.
    Rob: Good luck, Goodbye. Thanks, Boss.
