* '''Subverted''': We hear PacMan style beeps as Bob and Alice play on an Xbox 360. The camera then pans around to reveal a modern game on the screen. Alice compliments Bob on his ring tone as he answers his mobile. They're actually playing ''{{Halo 3}}''.

* '''Zig Zagged''': Bob is seen playing on an 80's era game. Then he gets bored and he and Alice play a modern FPS...which turns out to be Doom. Then Bob's younger brother Rob comes in and asks if he can play on his new game when they're done with their old ones. Alice and Bob decide to let him have his fun. The game is then reveal to be completely sprite based. It's ''{{Disgaea}} 3''.

** The Alice and Bob show is sponsored by Microsoft. Their favorite game is ''{{Halo}} 3'' multiplayer, on Bob's [[StuckOnBandAidBrand Microsoft XBox 360 Elite, over his Microsoft XBox Live Gold Subscription]]. Both Bob and Alice like to brag online about their "leetness".

* '''Plotted A Good Waste''': Turns out Alice and Bob are both part of an experiment by the U.S. government to see if regular civilians can suscessfully replicate conditions from the 80s, and the duo are fittingly playing games from that time period.
