The One Thing No One Else Has

If you read this blog, you know I have many pet peeves. Here's one, courtesy of the played-waaay-too-often promo for some movie or TV show or something. If you want, skip to the :16 mark.

"We can give her the one thing nobody else [ever] has; we can love her." [I swear they say "ever" on the TV version, which is slightly different].

Really? No one else has love? Seriously? Nobody else in the entire town, continent, or world has love. I just can't even fathom how many hard-core death metal albums the writers had to listen to to come up with this depressing statement.
And shouldn't it be "We can give her the one thing nobody else has: love"? The original way isn't technically wrong, it just sounds... sloppy. C'mon, writers. I know you're depressed about maybe having graduated Cum Laude from Harvard or something, and now you having a job writing for some crappy CW show, but have just an ounce of forethought. The commercial is on every single commercial break on The CW, and you couldn't wrestle out any somewhat meaningful and/or sensical dialogue to entice viewers?

C'mon.

Get it together.

PS: Am I the only one who thinks the mom looks the same age as the daughter?
