** Another way to look at it is that Oleander is legitimately surprised that someone truly read and believed in what the pamphlet said. Just from the way the other campers act, it's pretty clear that they for the most part see it as a summer camp that just happens to involve psychic training here and there, and for the most part goof off. Oleander, [[spoiler: even in his mentally warped state as the BigBad]] is probably joyful that someone actually takes the whole thing as seriously as he does, hence why even though the counselors technically claim that Raz isn't allowed to take part, Oleander has no problem letting Raz into Basic Braining. He was probably gleeful at finally being able to teach someone who gives a damn [[spoiler: and probably had plans on making Raz his most powerful psychic death tank soldier for his EvilPlan.]]

* The music in Ford's Sanctuary is solemn, yet surprisingly somber. This is ForeShadowing for Ford Cruller's own backstory.

backstory. [[spoiler:He's basically confined in it, both because of his literally-fractured mind; and because he has been removed on active duty, forcing him to investigate potential missions from the Sanctuary and send the coaches in his stead, who claim all the merit]].

** I always thought it was for the very simple reason that this is the mind of a ''fish''. Naturally, an aquatic creature would place greater emphasis on naval forces, regardless of where it actually turns out to be.

* So, Sheegor goes and gets the brains that you didn't and puts them in the appropriate children. Boy, it's a good thing there's a photograph with each brain's jar! Imagine if you just broke the jars and took the brains with you with no indication of which one goes where! That'd just be... eheh... silly... [[spoiler:But really, if you did do something so foolish as that, making Sheegor run around to their various hiding places for nothing, you've got Sasha, Milla, and Cruller around. They'd be able to figure out whose brain is whose, presumably. Which is why this is in Brilliance and not Horror.]]

** For additional Fridge Horror, we never see HOW Milla's children burned. Wanna bet Boyd did it?

** It could also be considered another bit of foreshadowing in regards to [[spoiler: Coach Oleander's nature as a phony war veteran. After all, while it is true that the Navy does use airplanes via aircraft carriers, the fact that he claims airplanes are what the Navy is known for, despite that mostly being the focus of the AIR FORCE, hints that he was never part of the armed forces at all.]] Granted it could be argued he just conflated all the branches of the armed forces together just for the sake of simplifying things, but still. -ANewEnigma

* "Fred"'s an unassuming, affable-enough-sounding name that was probably picked to give the NiceGuy with a FamousAncestor an inverted SesquipedalianSmith kind of name. Turns a little ironic when you consider that Napoleon was actually a pretty big fan of [[UsefulNotes/FrederickTheGreat a guy named Fred]].
