* [[PetTheDog Pet The Spore Launcher]]: Shepard's idle animation indicates he really has a fondness for the thing.

* AlwaysABiggerFish: Invoked by Nihilanth. [[spoiler: He's undoubtedly talking about the Combine, or more specifically the Combine Advisors - or who they're advisors ''to''.]]

* WhatTheHellHero: ** Nihilanth is warning Shepard the ''entire'' game to ''cut it out'' ("Deceive you... will deceive you...", "Their slaves... we are their slaves... we are...", "The truth... you can never know... the truth...")

* ContinuityNod: On the initial train journey, you pass by a security guard banging on a door; in ''Blue Shift'', where you play as a security guard, the first door you come to malfunctions, and if you look around while waiting for the guard on the other side to open it, you'll see Freeman passing you by. Later on, you can overhear some soldiers complaining about having to do the crap work because Shephard's team hasn't arrived yet.
