Added DiffLines:

** "faber" is Latin for "maker". Make of that what you will.

* SmallRoleBigImpact: Clarisse is written out of the story almost immediately, but her brief role instigatesinstigates Montag's change--i.e., pretty much all the novel's events.



* {{Zeerust}}: Though the novel merely takes place in an unspecified future time after 1990, the movie's technology is zeerust-y. However, technology like the "parlor walls" and the "seashell radios" mirror today's big, flatscreen [=TVs=] (some of which can be mounted onto walls, making them "parlor walls" to some extent), while the seashell radios are similar to either Bluetooth phones or [=iPod=] earbud headphones.

* {{Delinquents}}: Culture has been allowed to decline to the point where teenagers bully people, vandalize public property, and run down pedestrians for kicks and jollies. One closer-to-home example happens happens when Montag is nearly struck by a car full of teenagers and Clarisse gets trampled over by a bunch of teenage hoodlums.

* NotBrainwashed: Clarisse and Faber are the only ones who don't watch the parlor wall [=TV=]s. Also, Montag hates to watch television, and only does it to please his wife.
