* AFriendInNeed: Paul and Marion go out of their way to help David, even though some bickering between them you overhear early on indicates how much of a drain helping him is. Late in the game a disturbing phone call prompts them to take an entire day out to drive to a secluded place they've never been to and into circumstances they have no knowledge of, just to make sure David's okay. It's a good thing they did too; Paul ends up saving David's life.

** At one point you have to solve a puzzle and it involves ''Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDoctorJekyllAndMrHyde''. The fact that you have to encounter this book foreshadows [[spoiler:Duke's dual motivation of hating David and wanting him dead... and yet also having pity on David and wanting him to succeed where Duke failed.]]

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: When HardWorkHardlyWorks, let it go. There are times when your best just isn't good enough, and sometimes the insurmountable obstacles in your way are beyond your control to change; in those moments, there's no shame in finding another dream.

Added DiffLines:

* HardWorkHardlyWorks: [[spoiler: The root of David's problems; he couldn't become a pilot because of his colorblindness and there's nothing he can do to cure his mother. Fighting an unwinnable uphill battle against things you can't change by simply working harder just doesn't work, and it's ultimately what drove Duke to suicide.]]
