* BreadEggsMilkSquick: In the 2071 sim, as the older schoolchildren of the Church of God's Word are about to throw stones at you, the younger ones can be heard chanting a familiar rhyme in the background: "Pick an apple, bake a pie, animals deserve to die."

Added DiffLines:

* HasTwoMommies: In the technical sense: when you ask Perelman about your parents, he tells you that they are just a part of your simulation life, while in real life you don't have any real parents, unless you count these "parents" to be himself and Dr. Aseejh Randu (although, to be sure, Dr. Perelman himself was married to Leah, whose daughter Esther she gave birth to, a few years before Leah passed away).

Added DiffLines:

* ElderAbuse: Played briefly in the 2061 simulation, when children make fun of you for being around fifty years old; but as the decades pass in the later simulations, the town is suffering many of these ''a lot'' (via violence and name-calling)! And it doesn't help if you are around sixty years old in the 2071 simulation or, God help you, ''seventy'' in the 2081 sim-wreck!


Added DiffLines:

* InkblotTest: At one time when you exit Simulation Mode, and Dr. Perelman asks you to come to his office for "one more quick series of psych tests we want to run", when you arrive, he'll be here with Dr. Ernest Grimwold for the psych tests cards with pictures on it that look like inkblot designs.

* PostApocalypticDog: You can't explore the 2081 simulation for very long without being torn apart by feral dogs, among other grim fates.

** Also, at the beginning of Part I, the quote, "Tomorrow never yet / On any human being rose or set", is taken from the poem [[https://books.google.com/books?id=EzQoAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA197&lpg=PA197&dq=what+is+time+by+joshua+marsden&source=bl&ots=cQNWvBFxom&sig=O2VUGwYs-9H11zj_2qDfl4Nr4FM&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwihuYLj4_fSAhVj94MKHSx5DjsQ6AEIKjAE#v=onepage&q=what%20is%20time%20by%20joshua%20marsden&f=false "What Is Time?"]] by the [[http://www.hymntime.com/tch/bio/m/a/r/s/marsden_j.htm Rev. Joshua Marsden]] (1777-1837), whom Meretzky misattributed as "William Marsden".

Joshua Marsden]] (1777-1837), whom Meretzky misattributed as "William Marsden". Here's the full excerpt:
--->I asked my Bible, and methinks it said,\\
"Time is the present hour, the past is fled:\\
Live, live today; ''tomorrow never yet''\\
''On any human being rose or set.''"
** There are also two poems by Creator/EmilyDickinson in the game: [[http://hellopoetry.com/poem/3451/pursuing-you-in-your-transitions/ "Pursuing You in Your Transitions"]] (in PRISM.NAME in Library Mode) and [[http://famouspoetsandpoems.com/poets/emily_dickinson/poems/7070 "Her Face Was in a Bed of Hair"]] (the beginning of Part III). And at the Epilogue, an excerpt from "The Prelude" by Creator/WilliamWordsworth contains the game's TitleDrop.

* HeKnowsTooMuch: [[spoiler:Ryder and his {{mooks}} make attempts to assassinate any "visitors" who stand in the way of writing his dangerous Plan into law and to put the entire laboratory into lockdown without any communications until the Plan is accomplished. They can even attempt to "pull the plug" on you for being a "troublemaker" unless you stop them first.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ForbiddenChekhovsGun: The Interface Mode and its controls are usually the ones not to be tampered with in the game, since doing so can lead to a "WhatTheHellHero" from Perelman, [[VideoGameCrueltyPunishment who will shut you down until it gets fixed]], leading to a NonstandardGameOver. [[spoiler:The only thing that ''can'' be tampered with in Interface Mode is the HVAC Controller, and that's toward the end of the game, where you have to shut off the ventilation in the Delta Sector of the Maintenance Core to save yourself from [[HeKnowsTooMuch getting dismantled (i.e., killed) by Senator Ryder's]] {{mooks}}.]]
