** Given she is the assistant to doctorate geologist Amy, you would expect Rachel to know a thing or two about rocks and volcanoes. Rachel even backs Amy's theory about volcanic activity being a culprit regarding the death for seven men in an underground tunnel. Yet, while they investigate ''that very tunnel'', Rachel decides to straddle a large crack surrounded by sulfur residue. [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong What could possibly go wrong?]]

** Averted with Roark, who sees an honest-to-God volcano develop right in his home town and ''explicitly refuses to evacuate'', instead preferring to [[HonorBeforeReason fight it]]. This would be a straight example... except the movie ''[[ArtisticLicensePhysics agrees with him]]''.

* ChildrenAreSpecial: During one of the closing scenes, a police officer asks a rescued young boy what his mother looks like. After looking around a moment at the survivors and emergency personnel covered in ash, he remarks, "Look at their faces. They all look the same." Cue the uplifting string ensemble.



* TooDumbToLive: Kelly. She claims to not need a babysitter but she freezes up constantly, forcing people to drop what they're doing (which in once instance includes trying to save someone else's life) to bail her ass out.
** She distracts her father from rescuing two trapped firemen - when she had plenty of time to get away from the lava - and they ''burn to death''. She also just sits and stares at a freshly ejected lava bomb, until a bit of said lava spits out from it and hits her in the leg - giving her a ''[[ConvectionSchmonvection second degree burn.]]'' Kid has PlotArmor about 10 feet thick.
** Another instance has her losing a kid she was put in charge of looking after. She finally locates him on an exploding street...then decides to stay there and wait to be saved.

* SoftGlass: Immediately following an ItsQuietTooQuiet / OhCrap scene where the roar of seismic and volcanic activity suddenly stops, there is an explosion that results in the windows of all the surrounding buildings getting blown out. The glass from this visibly (and hilariously) strikes Jaye directly in the face, as well as showering Mike. They both shake it off like they wouldn't have been cut to shreds.

* DeadlyGas: [[spoiler: Superheated volcanic and toxic gases issuing from a crack in the storm drain lining was responsible for the deaths of the 7 workers earlier. It nearly kills Roark and Gator when they go down to have a look themselves. Then shortly before the Tar pit eruption, it kills Rachel when she and Amy go down to examine it.]]

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Tired of listening to Amy and Stan bicker before he can find out what's going on, Roark says, "Thanks for coming down at such short notice, but could you save the fight for another time?" Without missing a beat, Amy looks at her watch and says, "[[DeadpanSnarker Sure, is 6:45 okay with you?]]" Both Roark and Stan chuckle at that.

Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: The fact Emmit wants Roark's job.
* ShoutOut: When describing how bad the lava flow is, Emmit at one point says, "[[Literature/TheBible Moses]] couldn't re-route this shit!"

** There's also the scene where they block and deal with the main lava flow, they also sprayed water into the volcano to pacify it. In reality, if you tried to cool down a volcano, then you would most likely make the eruption phreatic or phreatomagmatic. [[TooDumbToLive Which considering that these types of eruptions are a crapton more dangerous than plain lava eruptions, you would pretty much be asking for Los Angeles to be levelled by pyroclastic surges.]]
