* HiddenDepths: Rogo is usually the buffoonish clown of the group... but after [[spoiler:Mrs. Rosen dies of a heart attack while saving Reverend Scott, ]] Rogo looks at [[spoiler:her dead body,]] sighs tiredly, and says, "You had a lot of guts, [[spoiler:lady.]] A lot of guts." And here the viewer is reminded that Rogo, for all his bluster, is a cop from New York City, and he's seen this sort of thing ''way'' too many times.

** Much of Nonnie's clueless nature is down to the timing. This is a movie made in the seventies and Nonnie is the epitome of the desperately naive, gentle hippy flower child of the time period, floating through life with an older brother to take care of her. Until he dies, she's probably never been required to make a decision for herself in her entire life. So her confusion and hopeless participation in a crisis is possibly understandable.
