[Quick Summary: Recently released from a psychiatric hospital, Pat recoups with an unlikely ally.]
There is one line that made see that Pat and Tiffany should be together.
First, let me set the scene:
At the diner, Pat eats cereal. Tiffany has tea.
Pat is prohibited from contacting his ex-wife Nikki. Tiffany offers to deliver a note to her for him.
Pat is about to bolt out the door to write the letter... and Tiffany stops him with, "Can I at least finish my tea?" He then remembers his manners.
After that one line, I knew that Tiffany was good for Pat.
She did what no one else was able to do - she got him outside his self-absorbed box.
She got him to socialize again in a healthy way.
That's a subtle, but definite "meant to be" in my book.
WHAT I'VE LEARNED: I like it when characters fit together well.
