Fridge Brilliance

  • During Death of a Salesman, a woman's laugh is heard repeatedly. This woman is revealed later to be the main character's mistress. During the final test, I subconsciously listed it along with the Leitmotifs and then I reread what I'd written. Cue the Eureka moment. --WL (not a registered troper)
  • Why is Willy so obsessed with personal attractiveness and thinks it's the key to success? Because he's a salesman, and for salesmen, personal attractiveness IS their bread and butter.
    • ...which adds a metaphor of the title: it's not just WILLY's death, it's the death of his salesman-like ideals! Brilliant! -Black Humor
