* GenreSavvy: Michael is almost acutely aware that something bad awaits him if he goes along with Elsa and her husband. He's even tries to get hired on the first merchant ship leaving New York just to avoid being pulled into it. It's only the promise a very nice paycheck that causes him to reconsider and even then he's still leery about it.

* HallOfMirrors: TropeCodifier. Probably not the TropeMaker as this trope was used for comic effect by Creator/CharlieChaplin in ''TheCircus'' some 20 years before.
