  • Downplayed: Arthur sometimes walks in the park during lunch.

  • Justified: Some of Arthur's best memories take place outdoors, so he spends time there whenever he can.
  • Inverted: Arthur lives in the city and goes out of his way to avoid the park and anywhere else with growing plants.
  • Subverted: Arthur lives in the suburbs and explains later he can't afford to live in closer.
  • Double Subverted: Arthur laments how he has to live out in the countryside for the expense, but secretly loves it and claims that to avoid being belittled in the office.
  • Parodied: Arthur's house resembles a jungle on the inside, complete with stereotypical jungle noises, because he refuses to eliminate any form of nature in his surroundings.
  • Zig Zagged: Arthur is revealed to love nature, but then Beatrice is shown to hate it. Oh wait, that was a lie. But she actually was telling the truth, she just dislikes nature. But then Constantine, who was thought to hate nature, is shown to sincerely love it.
