|These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.|
Subjective Tropes for the Game Show:
- This Is Your Premise on Drugs: The $100,000 Pyramid meets Super Password and whatever Jay Wolpert is on when he devises these shows, given his track record.
Subjective Tropes for the Novel:
- Fridge Brilliance: Other than her very early books, Willis's novels are very firmly divided into the categories of comedy and tragedy. Except this one - which is it? It turns out Sir Godfrey has been telling us all along in his stage instructions "This is a comedy, not a tragedy!" and ultimately asks this of Polly (knowing she knows the future) who tells him "It is a comedy."
- Tear Jerker: 50% of the books are tearjerkers. The rest are moments of heartwarming and awesome.
- Of particular note is Sir Godfrey's goodbye ("Is it a comedy or a tragedy?") and Eileen's experiences at VE Day.
