** During the first ''[[ShowWithinAShow Ducktective]]'' short, the case was apparently an [[IncrediblyLamePun axcident]]. This foreshadows the plot: the murder weapon was an axe and it really was an accident; the wax figures were gunning for the real Grunkle Stan.
** [=McGucket=] asks, "are the wax figures alive, and -- follow-up question: can I survive the wax-man uprising?" Mabel just gives a simple "[[SureLetsGoWithThat Yes]]," and that is the correct answer to both. Not only are the wax figures alive, but everyone (except most of the wax figures themselves) survives the uprising.
** Stan mourning the loss of his wax double and even organising a funeral is foreshadowing the fact that [[spoiler: Stan has an identical twin]].
** The fake id's Dipper and Mabel made to get in, probably [[spoiler: is a run in the family]].

** During TheStinger, Mabel is asking about wearing a sweater made out of llama hair. Larry King's Wax Head shows up in the vent to tell her "Llamas are Nature's warriors," so she goes with the llama sweater. [[spoiler:She later gifts the llama sweater to Pacifica, identifying her as one of the ten Chosen that can stop Bill during Weirdmaggedon.]]
