* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: From the way the Chemist is introduced (a boy who, by watching medicine shows on TV, is the closest thing the orphans have to an in-house physician), you'd think he's built up to be a pretty important character. After the first night, he is never mentioned again.

* EvilLawyerJoke: Colfer seems to be going for this; the heavily militarized police in Satellite City are referred to as "lawyers", and they work for the bad guys.
