Color in Eternal Sunshine - a picspam

Last semester I wrote a paper on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and the post-modern period. I drew quite a few points of comparison and the one that stuck with me the most was the color of the film, basically because I had never noticed it. And then I rewatched the movie while writing the paper and it just smacked me right in the face: the movie is pretty much monotone --- Joel's world is monotone --- until Clementine walks in. In fact, Joel's world is pretty much in cold grayish colors, and Clem brings bright, hot colors. That's why she jumps right out of the screen like she's the only thing in Technicolor in a black and white world.

So, for picspammy's color challenge, I present to you...

Things that had used to be in traditional black and white
were now exploding in full, sunny color
