** This also works as a StealthMentor moment, since this would work to convince Scout that he needed to live up to his own standards, not Spy's... and it certainly seems to have worked. Scout even hints at this conclusion in his dialogue afterwards (though it also seems as though Spy disagrees, but he's not exactly a bad actor.)

* As a final test in "Expiration Date", the Spy asks Scout a simple question about hypothetical date arrangements, to which Scout gives an answer the only someone like the Spy would've taught him...just so the Spy can shoot it down and flunk the Scout. Because leading somebody on just to backstab them the second they let down their guard is the Spy's entire schtick in gameplay.

** Alternatively, the way to earn Australium weapons in-game involves going on a tour of duty in one of the harder difficulties of Mann vs Machine, and even then, it has a low drop rate. A player has to have a good sense of strategy to get one, and between having to go on many repeated tours of duty to get them and the subsequent implications of a BraggingRightsReward, it's likely they'll play fairly aggressively; thus, the use of Australium describes them perfectly.

* At first, Australium weapons seem like they're just Australium in name only: they don't make the mercs smarter, and considering that they were introduced during the [=MvM=] era (when Australium was a dwindling resource), it's surprising the Administrator and Gray Mann aren't hunting down the mercs for their Australium-plated weapons. That's because Australium weapons aren't actual Australium: they're made of Bestralium ([[WorthlessYellowRocks or gold]]).

* Expiration Date shows Demo making a beer run using two sets of teleporters: one going out, and one coming in. The Engineer that set up those teleporters is also a perennial beer drinker.

* On the one hand, seeing Spy cloak and run away, abandoning Scout at the first sign of danger, in the Jungle Inferno short is [[CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys disappointing]]. But on the other hand, let's look at it from Spy's point of view. He's holding his revolver; we can assume he has his trusty knife with him; and he can use the invis-watch. So his options are: a) back away and shoot the revolver at whatever is advancing, or b) cloak, flank the enemy and use the knife for a OneHitKill - as is his modus operandi on the battlefield. Which one would he choose? (And he sure as heck wouldn't go for a backstab on his boss(?) - especially when said boss is Saxton bloody Hale.)



* The Ambassador's name, while a pretty awesome for a weapon, makes all the more sense when one realizes the HandCannon has an engraving of Scout's mother on the side. Scout's mother. The Ambassador. ''Ye gads.''

** Saxtons elite customers could be clean, consistently effective and get regularly hired for high stakes jobs. From what we've seen with the mercenaries we know and love, they're a destructive force to everything around them and have little sense of subtlety, they get sporadic results when it comes to completing any tasks that don't involve destroying absolutely everything, and are another set of pawns in a seemingly meaningless ForeverWar between two goofy parties and a [[TheChessMaster Chessmaster.]]

** [[spoiler: Olivia is still in ownership of the company, and it's possible that she could inherit her fathers plans, leaving her as the last hurdle to overcome if and when the final issue comes out.]]

*** Might be worth mentioning that Demoman usually only ever sees Pauling when he's at work during normal circumstances, which is also the time he's usually drunk beyond reason. It's likely that the Drunk Demoman is the Demoman Pauling is familiar with.

* So...what exactly did Classic Scout and Classic Soldier want to do with all the "free kids" they'd get while running an orphanage?

** Given the name of one of the Steam achievements, the third layer of "crock" as in "what a crock of s#@$" which is what you will likely say when you get hit with one. Said achievement is also a reference to the term "cock block", which in turn has lead to the phrase "crock block" for someone who dodges a crocket. Or, in the case of a Pyro, airblasts it back.
