  • Funny Moments: In the film Monster In a Box, Spalding Gray relates during one performance of the play at Lincoln Center when the actor playing Wally Webb (Shane Culkin, brother of Macauley) interrupted the funeral scene with projectile vomit.
    • Sometime during Act II (at least in the Alley Theatre production), Mr. Webb gives George, his son-in-law-to-be, a long lecture on how to steer clear of your wife's authority (Ex: "Make sure she doesn't really know how much money you have). Then Mrs. Webb walks in and... "I did the opposite of that and I'm a happy man")
    • The wedding starts heartwarming and serious with everyone walking in...and then George's friends come by. You really need to see the play in action to see how hysterical this is.
  • High Octane Nightmare Fuel: The third act.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Guys, did you know you should appreciate life? Trust us, though, this is a very necessary anvil.
  • Tear Jerker
  • Gayngst: Simon Stimson is predominantly, though not definitively, identified as a closeted gay character, driven to alcoholism and eventually suicide.
