** [[spoiler:Sammun-Mak was retroactively '''already''' the God-King Of The World, and everyone else's personal histories and memories changed to match. Sam never removed his jacket and hat in the first place because, in the new reality, Max had never had his brain stolen (or, as it were, been kidnapped) in the first place.]]

* After [[spoiler: Sammun-Mak rewrites reality]], Sam is back in his normal attire, instead of his Noir Sam attire. [[spoiler: Sammun-Mak]] had just met Sam in his Noir attire, so how would he be able to recreate Sam's normal attire?

**** Plus, there's ANOTHER comic in which Sam''bites'' a criminal holding up a 7-Eleven-esque convenience store. So, I see them as good and in favor in justice, but in a ChaoticGood and not very ACLU-friendly sort of way.

***** I guess Sam also has proyection with Sameth, but, since he doesn't have powers of his own, he has to be near of Max for use it. Which make sense, because, in the last reel, they aren't using any knowledge Max couldn't remember.

**** In a moment of FridgeBrilliance, this also explains how Skun-ka're was able to sneak up on Max: Max wasn't merely distracted by the movie, his consciousness was ''actually not in his body'' at the time.

**** Maybe it's just subconscieous. Sam and Max didn't know the full details about the Astral Projector, and assumed they were just movies. They knew the characters as Sameth and Maximus, so that's how they addressed eachother.

*** "Only ''you'' can manipulate the outcome, my friends..." The Superego clearly (and, as he says, lamentably) has very little impact on Max's brain. Maybe the only way to control things in his favor was to manipulate the person who could manipulate Sam, the only guy Max listens to. Sam and Max do occassionally comment on the mainstays of point-and-click adventure games, after all, so Max may subconciously have some awareness of the fourth wall.

** Time travel itself wasn't used, but it's possible that when [[spoiler: Skun-ka'pe used the Eyes of Yog-Soggoth to see the future and alter it, it functions the same as time travel. Essentially the same thing happened: Sam and Max went to the future and brought back some information and items they needed to solve a puzzle in the past, and Skun-ka'pe looked into the future for information he needed to solve a puzzle in the present, thus changing the timeline in both instances. Different means, same effect.]]



* In 305 Sam takes control of Max's arms and legs, so aside from the spores that fed off nightmares he was pretty mush harmless. Why pray tell was that not reason enough to call off or at least delay the assault on Max, after showing that they were making progress? This was the half of the reason that Sam had to leave, and thus they were not able to keep max from dieing.

** Nefertiti was only a moderately good hexer in 302, most likely because she was young and still learning. The cow form would only stick around for a minute, hardly enough time to make it a particularly harsh curse. It's possible that when the family arrived in America, Nefertiti decided she wanted to embrace the new culture and assimilate to fit in better, and she put hexing aside. It's not unusual for immigrant children to put aside customs from the old world faster than their parents do. Thus, she wouldn't have improved, and even now that she's older and seems to take her heritage more seriously, that might have been enough to ensure she'd never be a master of mole curses.



** It shows him disappearing, one of the powers of the Devil's Toybox is teleportation. He could have just been blasted to any random corner of the globe [[spoiler:with Yog-Saggoth stuck in his chest]].

**If you ask Jurgen twice about Midtown Cowboys, Sam will ask him if they've just been watching the same repeat of Midtown Cowboys over and over. Jurgen replies that yes, they indeed are. When you go to the TV studio, the director says they've been waiting for Sam and Max to stop by so they can film a new episode, implying that the main show itself hasn't been in production since it was cancelled after episode 102. The most likely reason for it's cancellation despite it's popularity in Germany is that Germans didn't discover the show until after it was cancelled.

* The ending of 302 seems to imply Papierwaite was sucked into the Devil's Toybox. So...how did he get free? Did the Toybox acting as a power source to the Penal Zone weaken its power or something?
