!!This play provides examples of:

* {{Adorkable}}: Danni has very little idea how to behave around her idol, Sam, to the point of being almost incoherent at the beginning of the play.
* AdultFear: Jessa is having a baby and [[spoiler:her husband is leaving]]
* AllGaysArePromiscuous: Sam pretty much has a new lady every night.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Danni is definitely very interested in Sam despite the fact that Sam [[spoiler:only has eyes for Jessa]].
* BittersweetEnding: The movie ends with [[spoiler:Dr Moxie dying and all three women wondering what to do about the continued threat of the asteroid in the Cretaceous.]]
* CastFullOfGay: Most of the characters are queer.
* ForcefulKiss: Danni, being [[SociallyAwkwardHero Danni]], is realizing the gravity of being stuck in the past when she realizes how alone she is, grabs Sam, and kisses her -- hard, and passionately. This rather effectively communicates her true emotional state, i.e. she's attracted to Sam and a mess at expressing it. However, Sam isn't really into it.
* LoveHurts: [[spoiler: by the time Sam and Jessa finally get together they're still stuck in the past with no way to get out, an asteroid is hurtling towards them, and Jessa is still pregnant with her dead husband's baby ]]. It ''hurts''.
* OfficialCouple: Sam and Jessa are ''the'' love story of the play.
* OneTrueLove: After [[spoiler:Dr Moxie's death]] Sam tells Jessa "I know Iím not, Iím not like Johnny and I never will be but maybe, maybe I can be better because I would never leave you and every time, every night when you left and I had to watch you go it was- my heart hurt so much. And I think you and Mae and everything you are together, mother and daughter, i want- i want to help you raise her. i, you might not think Iím good enough or just enough but- but I am." and tells Jessa "her heart hurt" every time Jessa left the diner without her. Jessa reciprocates, telling Sam [[spoiler:she knew the whole time]].
* SociallyAwkwardHero: Danni. Completely unable to keep her cool around Sam, yet eventually [[spoiler:will have to figure out how to save everyone from the second asteroid]]
* TokenLesbian: Basically everyone but most of all Sam.
