* Why can't Rocky talk? Simple. He's Frank's ideal man, and Frank ultimately can't tolerate the viewpoints of anyone but himself. The fact that Rocky can't speak is a purposeful design feature on Frank's part, as what Frank wants out of a mate is a body, not a mind.
** Ties in with RuleOfSymbolism when you realize the statues that the transducer turns the cast into are, likewise, nude and *silent*. Frank has made them into exactly what he wants them to be.

* In this movie Frank has heard of Dr Scott and know he's a german scientist working for an American UFO bureau even though they've never met before. He also accuses Brad of being part of the bureau after he finds out Brad and Scott know each other. Scott then says the government has been working on their own transducer for some time. In [[http://www.rockymusic.org/showdoc/revenge-of-the-old-queen.php the draft script]] for RevengeOfTheOldQueen we find out that Transylvanians have infiltrated the bureau, the bureau's leader, Ray Ambo knows about them but the agents don't. Ray has a transducer hidden in his private bathroom and Brad's brother works for the bureau. This explains why Frank knows all about the individual agents but they don't know about him

* Columbia remarks that Rocky is "okay". At first it seems like she was just saying any compliment that came to mind, no matter how faint. A few minutes later, we meet her boyfriend Eddy--dark-haired, stocky, and by Frank's word, not at all well-muscled. Of course Columbia would say Rocky's just okay, he's not her type.

* Dr Scott crashing through the set of Dr Frank N Furter's lab. It had to be done that way as they built the set, then realised that there was no way in or out of it.

** Riff Raff at first seems like nothing more than a shady butler who kills Frank for no reason at the end. And, then I saw an interview with Richard O'Brien in which he points out that [[WordOfGod Riff Raff is jealous of Frank]] and that [[spoiler:it was actually Riff Raff who did most of the work on Rocky. ("We merely await your.. word.")]] Suddenly, Riff's shady behavior makes a lot more sense.
*** Even better? [[WordOfGod Richard O'Brien]] has stated that Riff Raff and Frank are NotSoDifferent. I watched the film/play again with this in mind...and it really adds to the animosity between Frank and Riff.

*** Even bigger tip-off: if you watch the opening wedding scene again & pay attention to the background, Frank, Riff Raff & Magenta ''are all present''. Riff Raff & Magenta are the "American Gothic" couple standing in front of the church doors, and Frank/Tim Curry plays the parson (standing with his back to us) talking with them in a brief, blink-and-you-miss-it shot. Of course Frank was behind it: he was right there, with his two faithful servants!

*** And that Frank, Magenta & Riff-Raff were all at the church as Brad and Janet were singing their plans, complete with Magenta & Riff-Raff carrying in a coffin during ''Dammit Janet''. See above Fridge Brilliance for details.

* Brad and Janet left Denton on a 'late November evening' and yet RichardNixon is making his resignation speech (which actually took place at noon, in August, in Washington DC's timezone - meaning it would be noon or morning throughout the United States)?

*** The fact that Frank just assumes everyone will get his "Charles Atlas" references already dates it quite a bit.

*** Then ''Eddie'' shouldn't have been able to sing, if one of them got the singing half and the other, the speaking half.
