** I thought the button was just for that particular room. Something like the room being able to detect what's in it, and the purge button being used to release the monster most suited for purging the occupants of the room. It could have been used to see what archetypes trigger what monsters, or what happens with multiple people. Just this one time, there happened to be several heavily armored guards inside so it released several strong creatures to purge what was inside. And since the door was left open, out they went and chaos ensues. As for it releasing several waves of monsters, maybe it was able to recognize the room was still inhabited and thus kept sending out waves to try and kill the monsters already released.

**** The Medical readouts are seen really clearly at 49:23, Jules is dead in position #1, marked red, and Marty is in position #3. At 56:59 into the film, when Lin is walking in to ask about the tunnel not being blown, you can see that there are two red columns, #1 (Jules) and #3 (Marty). Maybe Marty was injured in a way that broke his monitor; it doesn't seem like he'd have already messed with the wiring (which makes me wonder WHO was messing with the upstairs power. Maybe Mordecai was finally fed up with the whole deal?

* The guy who talked to the Controller was from Demolitions, not Maintenance. Different departments according to the betting board.

** It's illogical to assume the wolf's head was a trigger object, because 99% of the time, one would expect the potential sacrifices to just ignore it as a tacky bit of taxidermy. The Controllers weren't manipulating the Truth-or-Dare game's ''progression'' at all, only (to a degree) the mindsets of the participants. And it turned out that Marty - the one who suggested Jules make out with the thing - wasn't being influenced at all, thanks to the Chem Department.

*** This troper thought of the possibility, but didn't think it likely. Unlike the cellar's items, the wolf head wasn't portrayed in a particularly creepy fashion, which one would expect from a ChekhovsGun.

* It could have been like Alien V. Predator or [[Film/FreddyVsJason]], when it's similar to a crossover.

*** Or maybe the werewolf is ''one of the Organization personnel'', and works happily for one of its departments when he/she isn't locked up in a cube and covered with fur for a few days. They could get paid leave for full moon days, and a bonus if they're actually selected.

*** The total loss thing is most likely just there for the sake of talking about it and evaluations to make it easier to compare the sacrefices with each other. You could even call what we had in the movie close to a sucess, as the Virgin ''almost'' kills the Fool shortly before sunrise. But in the end, almost doesn't count.

** Well, most likely because that would have simply been boring.
