High emotional junctures in the film such as “when Juno accuses … the baby’s father of being ashamed of the fact that he and Juno have had sex” show a “break in Juno’s strength”, further developing the reality of her character and situation (199). The “juxtaposition” of these emotional peaks and the “quirks” of teenage life build an image of a girl being thrust out of the naivety of her teen years too soon (199). This image being reinforced via “visual cues” such as Juno calling “an abortion clinic, on a phone that looks like a hamburger” and her birth scene, where “she wears long, brightly striped socks” (199). To combat the idea of dialogue “too clever to be realistic”, Heinekamp claims that it only makes moments where there is a lack of this wit more powerful (200). An example of this being

Playfully dancing through the waters, bashfully approaching swimmers, clumsily squashing into the glass when taken from their oceanic homes, one can 't help being captivated by the social and charismatic West Indian Manatee. My own fascination with the trichechus manatus, or sea cow, as I like to call it, began in the second grade.
