** The aliens themselves. They get out their tripod in an alien planet, wearing no protective gear, rummaging through dirty stuff in a damp basement, and one of them even drinks water from a broken pipe. No wonder they all got sick.

* CallingTheOldManOut: From Robbie just before he tries to run off with the army guys (first time round); he calls Ray out on the fact that he's probably only taking the kids to Boston so they'll be with their mother...and less of a worry for him. This basically sums up their relationship for most of the movie; neither of the kids pays any attention to what he tells them to do, he knows barely anything about them and he clearly has hardly any real relationship with either of them.

* AdmiringTheAbomination: When the aliens are looking around the basement, Rachel seems intrigued by them and spends several moments watching what they're up to.



* AmbiguousDisorder: Rachel shows signs of this. Early on, she acts unusually mature for a 10-year old, and speaks in a rather emotionless voice. She frequently has panic attacks and comes off as rather needy and dependent, even for her age. It's also stated that she has claustrophobia.
