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.
YMMV: From the Earth to the Moon
Values Dissonance: Americans are portrayed as egotistical and willing to use any excuse to go to war, and we're supposed to like them. Of course, even though Verne is giving a comic portrait of America, he based it on facts.
The end of "The Original Wives Club," when Jim discovers that all of his kids had his tonsils out without him knowing, along with various other things, which he's very unhappy about until Marilyn explains that she was trying to protect him from being fatally distracted by worries at home.
Jim: [after a long pause] ...Thank you.
Marilyn: For what?
Designated Villain: A well-done, nuanced version in Senator Mondale, who initially seems to want to kill the moon landing just because it will score him political points. When he says that he doesn't really hate NASA, he just thinks the money being spent on it is a waste and could be better used ending poverty at home and a useless war abroad, it's tough to argue with him.
