** "El Muerte Roja" or "The Red Death" possibly refers to Creator/EdgarAllanPoe's "The Masque of The Red Death", also, both diseases are written in without much identity other than that they kill in awful ways.

* TenMinuteRetirement: [[spoiler: Mayor Phlemming fires Ozzie from the police force after blowing up The Zit, using his poor record and breaking of regulations as a smokescreen to cover up the existence of Thrax's infection, and orders Drix to leave Frank's body. Fortunately, both of them come around when Thrax makes Frank's body go to hell in a handbag, and they end up getting their jobs back.]]

** All anthropomorphization aside, anyone who's passed high school biology knows that viruses don't work even remotely like they're depicted in the film. Though they can be harmful to the organisms that they infest, they don't deliberately destroy the host body, because that would kill them too. Like all living organisms their instinct is to spread and replicate, and they do this (highly simplified) by mutating a host's cells into copies of themselves. The cells then can't do their original job - they do the Virus's job, which is to spread and replicate and find a way to spread to other bodies so that they can spread and replicate some more. If Thrax actually behaved like a virus, he would have spent the movie making an army of Thrax-clones or pulling GrandTheftMe on other cells à la ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers'', not trying to kill Frank by stealing his hypothalamus.
** See FridgeHorror for an alternate view on Thrax.

* SpockSpeak: Subverted--in a flashback, Frank speaks to a kid at a science fair who talks in this manner about his project to leach the toxins out of polluted oysters. Certain that the kid's a genius and the project worked, Frank picks one out of the container and ''eats it raw''. Then finds out the kid is actually of very low intelligence and the oysters are ''still'' polluted. (This, incidentally, is what led to Jones's disgrace--he saw a dangerous-looking germ on the oysters in the stomach before anyone else and pressed an emergency "vomit" button at exactly the wrong time, plus he did it so quickly that no-one else saw the germ.)

** For a brief moment, after Thrax killed the two blood cells managing the hypothalamus, you can see the dead body of one cells leaning over the console with several of the hypothalamus' thermometers in his posterior. You get a clearer image when the gland is freaking out later.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Mrs. Boyd gets a little embarrassed due to Frank throwing up on her after eating some bad oysters (which was revealed to be Ozzy flushing a virus out of his system) and places a ''restraining order'' against him for it. Note that that was caused by bad oysters made by one of ''her'' students! And Frank hadn't even been drinking. The same also applies to the magistrate who thought that the situation warranted issuing a restraining order against Frank.

** All anthropomorphization aside, anyone who's passed high school biology knows that viruses don't work even remotely like they're depicted in the film. Though they can be harmful to the organisms that they infest, they aren't biologically programmed to just cause their host as much harm as possible. They infest a host's cells so that they can reproduce by multiplying and spreading throughout its body--any harmful symptoms are simply side-effects of this, and killing the host would simply kill the virus in the process. This means, if Thrax actually behaved like a virus, he would have spent the movie making an army of Thrax-clones or pulling GrandTheftMe on other cells à la ''InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers'', not trying to kill Frank by stealing his hypothalamus. It's purely a matter of anthropomorphization after all, so of course the virus has a personality that reminds of humans.
