** [=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.

** 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.]]

!!Tropes in this episode:



** 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.
** The first question that Mabel takes at the event is from Old Man [=McGucket=], who asks if the wax figures are alive. He was ProperlyParanoid.
*** [=McGucket=] specifically 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.

* NightmareFuel: The first of many episodes to follow, "headhunters" shows some pretty disturbing images during it's final act, from the wax figures [[DeathGlare eyes]] rolling upwards into their heads when they attack to Wax Sherlock being slowly melted alive in the sun, the latter being less gruesome as he's made of wax, but it still gave at least one of us chills!
