    • Will starts complaining about Christmas songs being played mid November, but within the next decade that would become very late for hearing the first Christmas song.
  • The Woobie: Marcus one-hundred percent. When a character's first line is "There are some people who had a good time in life. I was starting to realize I wasn't one of them", You can tell its not going to be a happy film for them. Fiona also counts due to her struggles with depression.
