It's the best way to break news of infidelity to your significant other.
Learned from: The Descendants (2012)
Breaking up is hard to do... But not when you’re in a coma! If there’s anything you need to get off your chest while stuck in a comatose prison, just find a way to get someone else to do it.
Take Elizabeth (Patricia Hastie) in The Descendants, for instance. She was cheating on her husband (played by George Clooney), but he doesn't find out until she's comatose. It's quite shitty that the burden of breaking the news falls on their teenage daughter (Shailene Woodley), sure, but, still, it's difficult to hate on someone for infidelity when they're comatose. Right?
