** Apes cannot speak human languages because of the different structures of their vocal cords, not cognitive capacity... [[spoiler: [[MST3KMantra but then we wouldn't have two of the most powerful moments in the film]], would we?]]

** A blink-and-you'll-miss-it example, but the crude sketch of the window in the Rodman's attic that Caesar [[spoiler: drew on the wall of his cage in the San Bruno Pound to comfort himself]] later shows up rather ominously on a highway marker overlooking the Bay Valley skyline when [[spoiler:Caesar and his band of apes break out of the San Bruno pound,]] as though it were graffiti left by a gang marking their territory.

** Let's just say that being mean [[spoiler: to Caesar]] is not a good way to make it to the end credits.

** Will's father refusing the ALZ-113 treatment, in an odd way. Yes, it would have killed him, but they'd potentially have had warning about the side effects earlier and may have been able to curtail the epidemic.

** Will mentions that Caesar "[[SmartPeoplePlayChess plays chess pretty well]]." In case it becomes important later that he has a grasp of tactical and strategic maneuvering, efficiently utilizing subordinates with different skills and abilities, and how to outflank and entrap opponents.



* ShipperOnDeck: Caesar.

to:

* ShipperOnDeck: Caesar.Caesar for Will and Caroline.



* SmartPeoplePlayChess: An early sign that Caesar is progressing ''way'' beyond ordinary chimp capacity. Also that he is able to think strategically, plan ahead, and utilize numerous subordinates with differing skills and abilities. Just in case that will come in useful later.

* FreakierThanFiction: In the film, Bright Eyes is captured as an adult in Africa and shipped directly to Gen Sys in a matter of months. In reality, she would be captured as a baby after all the adults in her troop are slaughtered, smuggled out, and probably traded multiple times as a pet before being acquired by Gen Sys, all while being abused by her sucessive owners, most likely. Poachers don't bother with capturing wild adult chimpanzees because they are too strong and combative, and a corporation like Gen Sys would be under too close monitoring to import wild chimpanzees from Africa to the United States (which is banned). Of course, such a story would probably deserve its own movie, and the writer would have to figure out a way to make Bright Eyes pregnant.

** We never see what becomes of Caroline after the battle on the Golden Gate Bridge. Did she actually get arrested? Do she and Will get back together? Then again, considering that it's shown already that the human race is doomed, maybe we're better off not finding out.
