* According to Marni's tombstone, she was born in 2011. If the audience imagines, just for a moment, that this story is real, then by the time many are watching the movie, we "know" that somewhere in the world, a little girl named Marni was born just a few years ago--and presumably, kid versions of Nathan, Rotti, Mag, etc. also live among us. Innocent children, living in our normal, real world, and this is what their future will be. Somewhere out there is a little girl named Marni, who has no idea that she's going to grow up, be murdered by her ex-boyfriend, and see her daughter and husband be tormented said ex.

That's when the second realization hit: Marni must have had extremely good intuition. It's why Marni dumped Rotti for Nathan and married the latter in the span of a couple months. Shilo inhereted it which is why, in spite of being a shut-in with virtually no social experience, she [[spoiler:has an abrupt moment of insight and sees through Rotti's deception instead of shooting her father]]. Shilo and her mother are only the characters who [[spoiler:intuit Rotti's true intentions ''before'' he can screw them over]] - a feat none of the people who'd known him for years were capable of. --AgentWu * The first time you hear Nathan's song "Legal assassin" you think it's only about his repo man job. However in knowledge of the end, the line "But Shilo can never leave, she is my everything", is a major foreshadowing.

* Even though Nathan is no longer around to [[spoiler:poison]] Shilo, she's been locked away from other people her entire life, which means her immune system is probably complete crap: she's had no exposure at all to whatever diseases might be running around the population, and thus no natural immunological defenses. And if she does get sick, she has absolutely no one to take care of her.

* I think at the point the movie takes place Geneco's business is not really about selling organs anymore, and, for that matter, that reposessions are as much about Geneco's profits as much as about making a point. The people we actually see getting killed by Repo Men because of not being able to pay are "lumpen" lower class. On the other hand, we see Blind Mag end up on the hit list because of breach of contract. We also see Rotti bind Nathan in another simmilar contract, and try to make a final bargain with Shilo. It seems to me that Rotti's real business at that point is making Faustian bargains, and likely most of Geneco's clients have contracts simmilar to Mag's. Repo men's massacres amid lower classes are done partly to recoup the losses of "toxic loans" of resourceless people, but mostly to drive the point home to the vast majority of Geneco's clients//indentured servants.

* During the Zydrate Anatomy song, after the prostitute who talks to Shiloh gets her fix, you can see her lying on the ground for the rest of the song. Every now and then, you see a few prostitutes gather around to try and waker her up. When the police come for Amber, she's still just lying there while everyone else runs off. What if she overdosed?

*** Even if he did, she's still now completely alone. Aside from Nathan, the only people she's talked to for more than five minutes are Graverobber, Mag, and Rotti, [[spoiler:two of whom are dead]] by the end of the movie. That leaves her with ''Graverobber'', who is, well, a grave-robber and drug dealer. At least she's got the chance to learn a lucrative trade, right? (Though, considering he almost got them both shot the first time they met, he might not be the best teacher.) * During the Zydrate Anatomy song, after the prostitute who talks to Shiloh gets her fix, you can see her lying on the ground for the rest of the song.

** In The Hitchhikers Guide series, the Man who Rules the Universe is a completely isolated man with nothing but a cat to keep him company. This would be very similar to giving a company to someone who was isolated their entire life and the reason could be the same. Being oblivious to worldly matters allows one to make truly objective decisions, especially if they don't affect you at all.

Shilo's genetics are from someone compassionate who he loved and a (former) friend who is a great scientist and loyal employee. She's also remarkably polite to him, despite him being INCREDIBLY creepy, while his own children are crazed brats. It would ensure his legacy was of screwing over his publicly embarrassing kids and honoring the woman he loved. And if she is his biological child (which, head on over to WMG), "I'm infected/by your genetics" becomes some Fridge Brilliance.

** "The claims medic has no anesthetic" - sure, eyeballs aren't a problem, but the head around it MINUS anesthetic could kill you even with the most "gentle" repossession.

* I'd say that Amber proves herself the smartest since she successfully takes Geneco and gets her brothers' support (however forced) but Luigi is probably the second smartest one. When he and Pavi were arguing about who should get Geneco, Luigi was the one who thought that being smart was an asset in inheriting. Pavi just seemed to think that being attractive and having sex appeal was what was needed for a CEO.
