* GoodAdulteryBadAdultery: Sally is lonely and unsatisfied, Bob is distant (and by the end of the film, crazy) and Luke is kind and noble. (Luke is also able to help Sally reach orgasm, something she could never do with Bob.) It almost seems at one point as if the main message behind the film (apart from "War Is Bad!") is that "Adultery Can Be Good for You!" Of course, the infidelity does have negative consequences... but mostly for Bob. One gets the impression that Sally is better off for the experience.

''Coming Home'' has the most extreme example of this, as The Chambers Brothers' 11-minute long psychedelic classic "Time Has Come Today" is played in its entirety as the soundtrack to the scene where Bob confronts Luke and Sally.
