* CondensationClue: The show host writes the letter B on the steamy bathroom mirror for Jamal to notice. It was supposed to be answer for the next show question but as it turns out - the clue was wrong. Good thing Jamal didn't fall for it.

* InformedFlaw: Jamal's supposed lack of education and knowledge as a slumdog is lampshaded so many times, despite all evidence to the contrary it goes beyond BookDumb into this. (heck, with their smarts the brothers could get jobs working in the UsefulNotes/{{Bollywood}} equivalent of a spy film. Or an adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's Kim)
** Knowledge and intelligence are two different things. That's likely the ''point''. And remember, no one expects much from a "slumdog". Neither brother is dumb, but everyone thinks they are unless they prove otherwise.
