* When Collins says that he was expelled from MIT for his theory of actual reality, he paints it as they're just being close-minded and douchbaggy. But then you hear from Angel in La Vie Boheme just how he expressed that theory: [[spoiler: blowing up school equipment that probably costed thousands of dollars to create.]] No wonder he was fired! (Not that he had bad ideas, of course, but unless you wanna give a big "fuck you" to whoever you're working for, you miiiight not wanna do that.)

** Or even an acknowledgement of the fact [[WeAllDieSomeday everyone dies some day so you should live life while you can]], which is one of the major themes of the play. There's a [[AltumVidetur Latin phrase, "hodie mihi, cras tibi"]] with essentially this meaning, which is sometimes used on gravestones and so on as a kind of memento mori type thing. I honestly think that's probably meant as a major secondary meaning of the whole "Today 4 U" musical number itself, although it's not meant as the surface meaning.

* FridgeComedy: When you realise that for Angel to make her dramatic entrance in "Today 4 U" she had to be standing awkwardly outside the loft while Collins talked to his friends and found a good moment to introduce her.

* In "Contact" Angel's solo includes a short reprise of "Today 4 U", but after one line he switches it from "Today for you, tomorrow for me" to "Today me, tomorrow you." [[spoiler: This could not only be indicative of Angel's death, but a subtle dark nod to Collins' ultimate fate as well.]]

** You can even take it a step further into horror. Roger wants to write a song before he dies so he'll be remembered after he's gone. But he's not a good songwriter at all. He's not going to be remembered, because he's not important or special enough to be.

** But you can take it a step into happiness, too. If he keeps getting inspiration, maybe he will become a better songwriter. Mimi got him out of the house, she got him to feel happy (just look in the 2008 proshot cast of how he acts during "Happy New Year" when he's singing to Mimi)... she got him to write a song. It's not great, but it isn't horrible to the ear—and it's a start.

*** Mark could of also been talking about just between him and Roger as he felt Roger was killing himself trying to hide away from everything

*** Mark could of also been talking about just between him and Roger as he felt Roger was killing himself trying to hide away from everythingeverything.
*** It could also be a leftover remnant of an earlier iteration of the show where Mark was the only one uninfected with HIV/AIDS.

* In the original New York Theatre Workshop version of Rent, it is heavily implied that everything in "[[spoiler:Without You]]" takes place in the month of April, by Maureen in Voice Mail #3 (the song right before it), where she says, "April is [[spoiler: the cruelest month]].

** Or, maybe Benny and Mimi had no sex at all. The movie at least is somewhat up to interpretation on that part, that he simply took care of an old friend who had a shit ton of problems. Tbh, that sounds a lot more like Benny.
