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.
Big Lipped Alligator Moment: When Michael arrives late for Ben's swim race, he accidentally mistakes a kid named Ping Woo for Ben. The kid calls him out on it, but just to mess with him he claims he might be, which obviously freaks him out. It's funny, but no one ever brings it up again. The closest is a Call Back when Michael goes after some punk kids letting off fire crackers, the kid and his family are seen in the same party as Michael and his family.
Fridge Horror: Michael tells the remote to take him to the time he gets his promotion, which he only expects to wait a few months for, only to be horrified when he learns that he gets his promotion in a year. Now what if he never got that promotion, or asked the remote to take him to a time in the future that never happens in his lifetime? Does it just fast-forward to his death?
"Funny Aneurysm" Moment: "[In 2017] Michael Jackson, the first man to clone himself, is now suing himself for molesting himself."
Older than You Think: The idea of a remote that can change the world has been done before in Goosebumps with the same title no less. Though the protagonist in the story wasn't willing to learn his his lesson and wound up paying for it.
