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: The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
Alternate Character Interpretation: There are those who believe Klaus sabotaged the helicopter to get Ned out of the picture and take his place as Steve's surrogate son. Futhermore, due to Ned's posthumous appearance in the ending credits roll call, some believe that his death was faked by Steve for ratings.
