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: Watch It
Moral Event Horizon: When Michael gets back with Anne, that can be rationalized as him realizing how much he really needed her, and taking her to the jewelry store to get the ring seems like a step in the right direction. However, we realize Michael will never get better when he actually buys the fake ring, rather than the real one.
