** Another one from the scene with Alison being dropped off. The car stops for Bender, and Alison gets out, then the car stops for a second, with Alison standing there.... ''then'', the moment she tries to move toward the front window, it drives off. Alison's parents aren't just ignoring her, they're '''actively avoiding''' her, and making it blatant to her. That poor kid.

* When Andy unpacks his lunch, piece-by-piece, he does something odd. He first unpacks his four sandwiches and milk, then makes as though to put his bag away, then slowly takes out two pieces of fruit. While might seem like a tiny moment of comic relief, it's actually extremely telling of his life - not only did Andy not pack his own lunch, ''he had no idea what was in it''. Andy is so disconnected from control of his own life, he can't even decide what he eats. Prize racehorse indeed.

** Playing fast and loose with etmology there, perhaps. "breakfast" literally means to "break the fast" that you've endured overnight since the last night's meal. However, in communities that live in close quarters, it was generally true that breakfast would be the first mealtime of the day that everyone would be together.

* Bender scoring seven weeks of detention seemed stupid to me at first, until I realized that aside from wanting to escape his home life, Bender also despises Vernon so much that he wants to inconvenience him by forcing him to be at school for eight hours every Saturday.

**My own parents used to say, "If you put pressure on coal, you get a diamond."

* When you get down to it, Brian is nothing but a means to an end for his parents. If his suicide attempt was successful, they wouldn't have given a rat's ass. [[WeHaveReserves After all, they've got a younger daughter]].

**Also note that Bender doesn't look before crossing the road to make sure there isn't a car coming. His home life is so screwed up that he doesn't even care if he gets hit by a car.

* Maybe everyone realizes this one by now, but regarding Bender's life, you have to wonder what keeps him going. His life at school is horrible: bad grades, principal and teachers don't like him, and it appears that the rest of school doesn't either, going by what [[DeanBitterman Vernon]] told him ("You're a lying sack of shit and everyone knows it"), his life at home is [[ParentalAbandonment even]] [[AbusiveParents worse]] (and speaking from personal experience, this may explain the bad grades), he doesn't seem to have any ambition for himself, so it begs the question of how does he go on? [[TrueCompanions His friends.]] Sadly, we only get a glimpse into the dynamic between his relationship with them, but watch how ''defensive'' he gets when Claire says they would laugh at him for being seen with her. It also marks one of the few times in the movie where he genuinely gets angry as opposed to just acting [[SmugSnake cocky]] or [[JerkAss disrespectful.]]

** There's nobody there except the kids, Carl and Vernon. Carl has his own job to do and Vernon hates his job- he's there on a Saturday, who wouldn't? But he doesn't care enough to actually do a good job, nor does he care what they get up to. He just wants it to be over so he can go home. The only time he interfered was when he overheard a noise (like Bender falling through the ceiling) or when he caught them in the act (Bender in the gymnasium)
