** When Brant hovers above the big server fan which has a dangerous-looking spike in the middle, his situation looks similar to Ethan Hunt's who dangles above a pressure-sensitive floor in the first movie.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: For a brief moment, Benji's face appears distorted on the television screen he and Ethan use as a disguise. The Russian guy they're fooling is on the foreground, looking away.

** In other words, Cobalt believes that a planetwide Hiroshima would initiate a permanent NuclearWeaponsTaboo. The question of his sanity is left open-ended (Brandt just thinks he is insane), but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ccLG8JqY78 one]] DeletedScene makes him sound a lot less like a sociopath and a lot more like a man who's just broken from the stress of his job. He also makes the reasonably solid argument that a planetary nuclear holocaust ''now'' is still more survivable than one brought about by the next generation of Weapons of Mass Destruction currently in development, a claim given some credence by the bio-terrorism themes of the previous 2 films and Benji's own "anti-God" weapon speech from ''[=MI:3=]''.

->''The President has initiated Ghost Protocol. The entire IMF has been disavowed. Now, I've been ordered to take you back to Washington, where the DOD will label you as a rogue extremist and hang the Kremlin bombing on you and your team. Unless, you were to escape somewhere between here and the airport, having assaulted Mr. Brandt and me... you would then illegally scrounge whatever material you could from a backup supply cache that I've overlooked...You will then disappear..but if any one of your team is caught or killed, they will be branded terrorists, out to incite global nuclear war. Your mission, should you choose to accept it.''

* RepeatedCueTardyResponse: Lampshaded when Ethan Hunt shouts, "Mission Accomplished" just before hitting a button which would ensure the villain's plans were defeated. His teammates had gotten tied up dealing with TheDragon, leaving Ethan to frantically push the button until they could do their part. In the end scene, he and his teammates have a good laugh about this.

** Indeed, the way the civilain news reports are phrased indicates that pretty much no one believes the "accident with the gas mains" coverup.
