* Why exactly are the mercs so exuberant and unprofessional about their work in-game? They're hired killers and yet they shout goofy, playful lines and wear colorful clothing that would be ill-suited for combat. While some of this can be chalked up to the characters themselves being eccentric, it could also be that they don't take their warring that seriously anymore. Seeing as they can just [[DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist re-spawn indefinitely]], they don't have anything to worry about and can liven up their daily bouts by wearing silly outfits and ribbing each other.

Added DiffLines:

* The Heavy, Medic and Pyro don't have unique domination lines for other classes, unlike the others. The Medic doesn't get many of his own domination kills (usually he gets them through assists), so out-of-universe any such lines would be rarely heard and thus unneeded, while in-universe he wouldn't be able to think of a good response other than just laughing at them. The Pyro is TheUnintelligible, so unique lines for them would be redundant. Meanwhile, the Heavy doesn't have personal beefs with any particular class; he sees them all as equally tiny baby men and so he doesn't need specific insults.

** Also Australium and money are both forms of currency, so it's more of a misguided step of logic than a whole leap

** [[spoiler: Given that the Devil himself legitimately did not know Medic had 8 more souls in him, it's likely that God and whoever's managing Heaven's Gate didn't realize that the people going up there didn't have souls either. Given the Devil's reaction, it sounds like the Medic was the first ever person to do something like that, so it wouldn't be surprising if God and the Heaven people didn't bother checking for a soul (they probably assume that if the person had sold their soul to the devil, the devil would be the one doing the legwork to actually verify it.)]]

* ''The Naked and the Dead'' has a BigRedDevil when the Medic gets down there, but it's been previously established that the Bombinomicon is the devil here... so what gives? Is he just a bureaucrat, or maybe a case of HellHasNewManagement?

** An even crazier theory; the BLU Scout was in fact the real BLU Scout when the BLU Spy presented the photos, and the RED Spy had somehow managed to sneak in and take the BLU Scout's place during the BLU Spy's monologue.

** [[spoiler: Medic probably did surgically implant the souls of the other 8 mercs into himself, as he does have a FreudianSlip [[http://www.teamfortress.com/tf06_thenakedandthedead/#f=254 about it a few pages later.]] Maybe having a soul isn't a requirement to go to Heaven in the Team Fortress universe.]]

** Heavy: Getting a [=PhD=] in Russian Literature requires learning how to read at some point.

to:

** Pyro: In Pyroland, the lit-up directional signs that read things like "INTELLIGENCE" or "RESUPPLY" will instead read as "MMPH", "MMM MMPH" and so on, essentially botching any meaning the words were supposed to have and making any writing unintelligible. In [[http://www.teamfortress.com/tf01_ring_of_fired/#f=46 Ring of Fired]], Pyro is shown to be reading through a newspaper but its view through Pyrovision shows a blank sheet instead.
** Demoman: Knows enough to own a mansion, unless his mother does the paperwork for it, but knowing her, it's more likely Demo does the paperwork for it.
** Heavy: Getting a [=PhD=] in Russian Literature requires learning how to read at some point. point, but probably in Russian and not English.

* How did the Medic in the ''Meet the Medic'' video get an UberCharge so quickly after just two heals? He had just used his medigun to heal the Heavy, who had his entire torso open, whose heart and been removed, and who had just gotten a rib snapped off. UberCharge generates faster by healing teammates who are more seriously injured; all those injuries on the Heavy, combined with healing a broken leg on the Demoman and repairing what was possibly spinal damage on the Scout, he'd most likely have plenty of charge to go uber.

** The Quick Fix actually doesn't build uber faster on hurt targets specifically. Uber rate is only slowed when patients are at maximum overheal, and since the Quick Fix didn't overheal targets when the video was released it wouldn't build uber any faster than it would normally. The reason why he would be fully charged so quick is probably because he's been healing Heavy for a while - sharing an anecdote about his lost medical license as the charge slowly trickles in, and the healing of Scout and Demo is the last bit needed to deploy a charge.
