  • "Lemons", while full of tearjerkers, also has these sprinkled throughout.

    • The ending, where Dre monologues that for all the fears that come with Trump's election, he was nevertheless happy to see that his kids grew up seeing a black family in the White House and a woman nearly win the presidency, how he still has hope for the future and spells out that people need to start listening to each other because the divisions in the country can't stay.
