Most importantly, the artist connects with the audience on a personal level, which is unique and allows him to write in a simplistic manner. In the first verse, Scotty McCreery sings about a time he was fishing at the creek as a child. The first time he mentions the theme, which is hidden in the phrase, “five more minutes,” he talks about a simple event that does not hold much meaning or emotion, but he purposefully uses it. The lines that introduce this are “Mama’s on the porch yelling supper’s hot, y’all come and get it” and “We yelled five more minutes.” Scotty starts with a verse like this because it exemplifies how precious time is and how he always tries to create more time for what he loves. The verse also shows the dilemma that some people face of having to choose between doing one thing over another.

Later in the letter, Adams also uses a historical event in order to compel her son to do good. She proposes, “Would Cicero have
The text creator suggests that one 's obligations can restrain the pursue of one 's dreams. In Alistair McLeod 's “ The Boat,” McLeod shows the fathers struggle to fulfill his dreams of attending university because of his selfless inclinations. This portrays the father 's boat, which symbolizes the imprisonment he feels because of his duty as a provider. Whenever the father would come home from work, he would put all of his “earnings” on the kitchen table, a demonstration of his constant sacrifices. His job as a fisherman is a necessity for his family as it is their main source of income.

The film was inspired by the director and co-writer, Andrew Stanton’s overprotective nature. As a relatively new father during the film’s development, Stanton found himself at odds with his tendency to veer into overprotective territory, much in the way viewers see Marlin combating the same thing in raising his son Nemo.
