YMMV / Now and Then

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Was the other girls' constant teasing of Chrissy light-hearted fun or them just being jerks? Chrissy could be a bit naive, but she was pretty accepting of the girls' differences and was generally kinder to them than they were her.
    • Sam states that Teeny is a pathological liar (and she grows up to be a good actress). Was she lying about the Cosmo quiz results, which sounded all too accurate in the answers?
  • True Art Is Angsty: Samantha's view of the world until near the end.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: Samantha's books, according to the other girls.
  • Woobie: Roberta and Crazy Pete.
