Added DiffLines:

* CloudCuckoolander: Ada often seems to be this, as in a strange scene where she pretends to be blind as a joke (which her friends don't find amusing at all). As the film wears on, she appears to have depression or a similar mental disorder (worsened by her husband's diffident behavior) and copes with it using drugs and alcohol.
