YMMV: There's Something About Mary
  • Fridge Horror: It is very likely the entire reason Woogie not only befriended Ted but became his best friend was to eventually use him to get to Mary. Not only that, but he always resented him because Ted (in Woogie's mind) stole Mary from him.
    • There is also the fact that he never loved his wife and kids.
  • Mary Sue: Possibly lampshaded with Mary, as her name is literally Mary. She is always portrayed in a positive light and throughout the film multiple guys lie and cheat their way in other to have some form of a chance of dating her.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The fate of Sully in the extended version.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Keith David as Mary's stepfather. And the police officer who's going to break Ted. Harland Williams as the serial killer who's going to sell seven minute abs.
  • The Woobie: Ted, especially during the zipper scene and towards the end of the film.
