  • Ben telling Allison's sister to back off when Allison is about to give birth is one of the awesomest and most satisfying talking-to's ever caught on film. He earns her respect and admiration after that scene.
    Ben: Look, Deb, you are high off your ass if you think you're coming into that room. You take one step towards that door, I will tell security there's a crazy lady in a pink dress running around, snatching up babies, so don't even try to come into that room. That's my room now. That little area with the soda machine? That's your area. My room. Your area. Stay your area. Stay out of my room. Back. The. Fuck. Off.
    • Doubles as a Heartwarming Moment, as it reflects Ben's transition from an irresponsible Manchild to a Papa Wolf who is really working hard to get his shit together for Allison and their daughter.
  • Craig Robinson as the bouncer, calmly apologizing and telling Debbie exactly why he can't let her and Allison in the club. He's the one character who makes her pause and think about what she's doing.

How well does it match the trope?
