* WeCouldHaveAvoidedAllThis: After Kino refuses the pearl dealer's offer of 1000 and then 1500 pesos for the pearl (because he believes it's worth at least fifty times that much and that the dealer's trying to cheat him), some of his neighbors express the view that he should have accepted the 1500, since that's wealth enough to a poor man who's never had any money. [[spoiler:Considering what happens in the last third of the novel, they may have been right.]]
