* Susan mentions that she links 'Tiffany' to her father, which she isn't really on speaking terms with. But she was also raised to not hate him (her mother relied on teaching her AllMenArePerverts). And ... one of the last things her father says that we know of? [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=574 'Tiffany, listen to me. Your mother's coming home tomorrow, and you mustn't tell her of [him having another woman over].']] Well, if Tiffany can't speak, Susan can ...
* Grace [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1090 at one point]] wonders if it's weird that while Tedd owns many skirts, she doesn't. Why would this be? The first time Grace goes shopping, it's with Sarah. And while Sarah isn't in RealWomenDontWearDresses territory as far as Susan, she's still likely influenced to some extent; Sarah has rarely gone for a skirt look herself, aside from the school uniform arc. It's likely that Elliot (as Cheerleadra and her disguises) and Greg (for cosplay) have worn them more often.

* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2003-10-06 Uryuoms do not judge the physical attractiveness of potential mates.]] At first, this just seems like a [[PlanetOfHats hat]]--physical attractiveness is often a (very, very loose) measure of health, after all. But uryuoms can all ''shapeshift''. Well, duh, of course they don't judge by appearances then.
* On first read, [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2002-04-09 this strip]] seems like just a silly throwaway joke. Since then, the comic has changed a lot, and several characters have gained explicit magical powers, the nature of which is determined by their actions and personalities, abilities usually awakened or enhanced by random strange events (such as getting turned into a girl, or slaying an [[OurVampiresAreDifferent almost-vampire]], or saving a lover from a deranged mage). The training at the Anime-Style Martial Arts Dojo actually helped two of them unlock that power. All by "participating in difficult, overly complex, and fairly ridiculous activities that shouldn't yield such fantastic results yet somehow do." What looked like LampshadeHanging on RuleOfFunny now turns out to be epic foreshadowing of how the EGS magic system works, before the comic was even revealed to HAVE a magic system.

* Remember [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2002-11-09 how Susan thought Greg used steroids?]] Now: remember how [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2012-06-13 magic energy can boost the size of body parts?]]

* During [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2010-07-21 this episode]], Sarah was a bit bummed out about missing out on getting magic, but according to what was established in [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2006-02-22 this strip]], she ''also'' missed out on a chance to ''never need birth control ever!''
* Giving people magic marks and initiating their Dreaming without their knowledge. Ok, not that Fridgey, since the horror is mentioned in-comic, but it still deserves a mention. Dex, Justin, and Rhoda all get their marks without their knowledge and without their consent. That leads to things like, say, Rhoda accidentally enchanting a boar and making it massive If it's happened to these three, think of how many other people it could happen to. It's actually pretty terrifying if you think about it, giving people strong, unbelievable powers without their permission and without them even knowing about it. Remember [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2009-12-24 this comic?]] OhCrap.

* Justin can't find any openly gay men in Moperville South, whereas half the men in Moperville North that Sarah asks about Ronin are openly gay. Contradiction? No. Moperville North contains '''Elliot'''. It's safe to come out as gay. No one dares make trouble over it lest Elliot hear. He's had that big an effect.

* When Susan was a little girl, she saw her father cheating with another woman. The reason she got up was because she wanted her dad to read her a book because she couldn't fall asleep. The book? "Literature/SleepingBeauty". The quintessential DamselInDistress who needs to be rescued by her man, and the type of story older Susan would despise. This just illustrates how traumatic this event was to poor Susan, since she actually ''liked'' those kinds of stories before, and now her hatred of tales like that is one of her main character traits.

* [[BodySnatcher Sirleck]] complains in passing that he "can't even take a break from this brain dead heap" because he's keeping the body of his current host alive...implying that he DOES take breaks from his hosts under normal circumstances, and that they're conscious. The horror hits when you realize this would entail leaving the person he possessed trapped somewhere, temporarily free but helpless and KNOWING he'd just come back for them when he felt like it. That or just leave them to starve to death if he'd gotten bored.

* At first calling immortals resetting death may be overkill, as they still ahve their core personality and it's just some of the outer aspects that change mostly. Heck it seems just like timelord regenration in Dr. Who. HOWEVER, when you consider the fact that uNLIKE Time Lords they keep almost none of thier memories and even those that they do keep come acroos in a second hand way like in a book. Knowing this one realisezs that the new immortal basically is for all intents and ourpses a comletly differnt person then their previous encounter, and calling it death seems surprisingly accurate. Considering all this is it any wonder Pandora didn't reset?

Considering all this is completely different person. Is it any wonder Pandora didn't refused to reset?
