Added DiffLines:

* FutureImperfect: Played with; the Rezzies and the Caretakers are undoubtedly very strange, but it's mainly the Kangs -- feral children who've grown up without adult supervision or any kind of education about the outside world -- who suffer the most from this. Their greetings are basically corrupted, over-dramatised versions of the game of pat-a-cake, and their entire society is based around what is essentially a massive game of capture the castle.

Added DiffLines:

* InstantlyProvenWrong: After reluctantly agreeing to join forces with Pex and the Rezzies, the Kangs state that never ever under any circumstances will they ever work with the Caretakers whatsoever. Cue the instant appearance of the Deputy Chief Caretaker, sheepishly wondering he and the other Caretakers can join their gang as well.

* ReversePsychology: Notice how the Doctor, when making up his rule about the caretakers standing down and basically letting him escape, spends a lot of time protesting to them about how the rule is absolutely absurd and he doesn't actually expect them to obey it... before reminding them that it's still in the rulebook.

Added DiffLines:

** The Doctor's escape from the caretakers uses their obsessive adherence to the rules against them, since he is both able to acquire a copy of their rulebook as his last request and then is able to make up a convincing-sounding rule about them standing down in order to slip out.
