* SubvertedRunningGag: The first two games both have Phil making the same terrible pun after leaving the first room; in the third game (where the method to leave the starting room involves rendering the teacher blind), Phil remarks that his idea "wasn't very sharp at all. In fact, it was kind of blurry."

Not only do they make very little effort to conceal the codes to open the prison cells from the prisoners (see EnterSolutionHere above), but every guard in the facility apparently gets the day off at the same time.
** To be fair, having the prisoner know the code to his or her cell door is slightly less of an issue when they can't see or reach the dialpad.
