* RealLifeWritesThePlot: According to ''LSL 2'''s hint book, the spinach dip puzzle was based on a similar occurrence during the game's development. During a party that Al Lowe and his wife were hosting, one of the employees brought spinach dip, which spoiled at some point during the party. Everyone who ate it got dreadfully sick a week later, prompting the idea for the puzzle.
--> '''Al Lowe:''' You had to figure out that silly puzzle just because I made all of my friends sick at Sierra.
