    • Harry is a Straw Nihilist who believes that life for Danny isn't Worth Living For, and he wants him to commit suicide to escape this "prison".

  • Inverted: Talking Down the Suicidal
  • Subverted: A group of Fratbros start daring each other to commit suicide in increasingly outlandish and over-the-tops ways, Wacky Fratboy Hijinx style.

  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: Harry chooses not to coerce Danny to kill himself since that's something he won't cross.
