Ivy and Al sheepishly prodding a baby pigeon in "The Exploding Girl"

The greatest band in the world (in the movie), The Clash at Demonhead, performing Metric's "Black Sheep" in "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World"

The constant numbers and 'x's placed throughout the production design, costumes, and dialogue of "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World"
