why does it say add comma for some intro and remove for others?

0

Grammarly tells me to add a comma for these:

 

From the moment, I walked into the Bull Pen I could tell he was in deep trouble.

For two days, she hoped he would call. 

Sure, you can.

 

And it suggests I remove this:

You know, the whole romantic nine yards. 

 

I'm confused because 'From the moment' seems weird to stop the action there. And 'You know' seems to me, to be an introductory clause. 

 

Help!

The sofware cannot understand the context of  a sentence and uses word patterns to try to correct grammar.  It doesn't always get things right.  Here is how I would punctuate these.

 

From the moment I walked into the bull pen, I could tell he was in deep trouble.

For two days, she hoped he would call.

 

The last two seem more like dialog, and could be interpreted different ways.

Sure you can.

You know, the whole romantic nine yards.
