** It could be some eccentricism on his or his family's part. Perhaps the vacation took place in a similar park to Westworld, where guests could dress up to suit a time period. Perhaps this was what planted the seeds of Westworld in Ford's mind?

[[folder: Ford's Age (spoilers)]]
* The cottage in Sector 17 is said to be based on Ford's childhood memories of a vacation his family once took in Cornwall, and the hosts within it are made to look like Young Ford and his family. The problem is: the clothing worn by the family, as well as the furnishings of the house, all look more like something out of the 1900's to maybe the RoaringTwenties at the latest. As the show takes place TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture (plus another 30 years), that would make Ford well over a century old! Ford's family vacation should have looked more like something out of the ''TheNineties''.

** Maybe, having spent that much time in the park had him adapt this accent and it became normal to him to use it.

*** But how is it that Logan in one of the shootings take the gun of a host claiming is an "upgrade". Later in that same episode, we see him killig another host with that same gun.

[[folder:Man in Black's accent]]
* Why does the Man in Black have a stereotypical Old West accent when [[spoiler:young William does not]]? Is he putting it on for the sake of role-playing within the game? If so, why does he never slip out of it, not even when he's outside the game in the Season 1 finale, and not even in those scenes where he loses his cool?

** The pianola doesn't have a player. The piano in Ford's office has a host player.

** And if it's possible to cheat the maze, that might actually be intentional as a metaphor, representing the hosts breaking free of the rules that have been imposed on them.

** True that, which would further bias the self-selection towards people who were already pretty callous and heartless. Combine that with the fact that new entrants to Westworld are told that the Turing Test ''doesn't mean anything''...you have a part specifically tailored to attract the worst behaviors in humanity.
