** Part of the reason Cloud was captured so long was that his would-be rescuers didn't trust each other and couldn't communicate effectively. It takes a [[spoiler: ContrivedCoincidence and EleventhHourRanger to get them moving]].

Genesis doesn't respect Zack's advice, the two stalled for so long because they were suspicious of Sephiroth, Angeal despite knowing more than most only communicates in CrypticConversation and Kunsel runs off into leads without bothering to tell anyone. No wonder they needed a [[spoiler: ContrivedConcidence and an ElevethHourRanger to get them moving]].
