** As an FYI, there was a bit of {{Foreshadowing}} with that bit - the St. Bernard mentions off-handedly the poker nights he had with the other dogs. - Tropers/NeoChaos

* In the intro, when Raz quotes the front of Oleander's pamphlet at him ("To soar across the astral plane? To wage psychic warfare against the enemies of free thought?"), Oleander's reaction is subdued, to put it mildly ("That is what I wrote on the front of the pamphlet.") This makes more sense when you realize that [[spoiler:Oleander was in the process of betraying those ideals, and probably felt guilty at being reminded about it. Furthermore, he becomes enthusiastic when Raz quotes the ''inside'' of the pamphlet -- which emphasizes his grudge against the normal world.]]

* In the early stages of the game, after Maloof recruits Mikhail as his bodyguard, you can see them hang around. If Raz asks Maloof if he can join in, Maloof replies "Sorry, Raz, but this is our thing". The fridge brilliance comes in when you realize that "Our Thing" ("Cosa Nostra") is a Sicilian term for TheMafia, and that [[spoiler:Maloof's attempt to [[ExternalCombustion wire Coach's jeep to explode]]]] near the end of the game, and the line "This is how we do things in my family", hint at his Mafia connections.

* A minor one, but there's a RunningGag in Lungfishopolis involving the Navy bringing out military hardware that is increasingly not-boatlike, eventually leading to deploying airplanes. Seems like another throwaway gag until one realizes how much naval power is provided by aircraft carriers.

* The Nightmares in Boyd's mind come out of nowhere and seem to have no reason to be there. The only other place you see them is in Milla's nightmare room. Now, what do Milla and Boyd have in common? Places burning down. How many arsons did Boyd commit before he was himself committed?

* It's a stretch, but maybe the reason Raz gets so excited at the idea of controlling fire is because fire is essentially the antithesis of [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes water]].

**and so does Fred! Of course, [[spoiler: He seems to realize that he's not quite sane]], so that could explain why he has them, despite being a patient.

*** [[spoiler: Though with being highly trained teachers, chances are Oleander, Nein and Milla have their censors under relative control. Sasha Nein's only come out when provoked and he says that he had kept them under strict control along with everything else in his brain]]

* The Meat Circus is already terrifying enough, but you have to wonder what it must have been like from Raz's point of view. We already know that he's hydrophobic, but considering the fact that a watery grave was sealed as his fate long before he was born, its probably not just your average everyday fear. To him, doing anything remotely near water is a gamble with death, so just try magnifying that to the degree it was presented in the Meat Circus. I'd be surprised if the poor kid wasn't emotionally traumatized by that experience.

* [[spoiler:"Sasha's First Loss."]] So... does that mean there were ''more''...?
