* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: Mark does a lot of stuff that an ordinary pathologist wouldn't do. In several scenes, he rubs elbows with city officials, directs rescue efforts and even personally leads a team of divers into the flooded subway to fight the clone, long after his particular profession has ceased to matter to the plot. Basically, whatever needs doing, he and pal Harry are usually the ones doing it.
