* ArtMajorBiology: 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.

After Thrax's last attack fails, Ozzy manages to escape with the chain while Thrax falls into a bottle of alcohol.
