* IceCreamKoan: The riddle of why hot dogs come in packs of 10 and buns in packs of 8. Gar first suggests that it's a way of saying [[DareToBeBadass you need to push yourself]].
-->The reason hot dogs come in packages of ten but hot-dog buns come in packages of just eight is so you’ll ''always'' need ''more'' buns for your hot dogs--because no matter how much you get, how much you achieve, how many times you win… You can never, ever let yourself feel like it’s enough.
** He changes his mind after [[spoiler:becoming the new Monk]], deciding it means that you can't really be happy until you accept what you can't change.
-->You just have to accept that, no matter how hard you try, you can never, ever have everything you want… So be happy with what you’ve got--‘cause you can always have a hot dog.

* XanatosGambit: The Monk's goal and plan is to keep the Scroll from anyone else's hands but whether he succeeds or not (and the Scroll is stolen) is ultimately irrelevant. [[spoiler: This is because the final word is missing, thus making the Scroll useless on its own.]] This failsafe was made because the Monk anticipated the possibility of his failing as a guardian.
