|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.|
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: "Things the Grandchildren Should Know" (the song), E's tribute to his late father — the famous physicist Hugh Everett III — with whom he never had a close relationship.
- Harsher in Hindsight: The answering machine message in "Manchild" from Beautiful Freak is a real one from E's sister, who suffered from depression and schizophrenia, and committed suicide not long after the album was released. Knowing this makes dialogue like "Because we're troopers" and "God...why am I so tired?" particularly chilling and heartbreaking.
- The Woobie: E himself.
